Club Service focuses on making clubs strong. A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships and an active membership development plan.

OVERVIEW OF CLUB SERVICE DIRECTOR

I see the role as an overseer, following up on actions yet to be completed, suggesting activities to enhance the enjoyment of the Club & its Members with an emphasis on gaining new members & communicating our role to the local community.

Also to recognise the support our partners give to us, as without this we would achieve far less.

I would like to emphasize the importance of e/greeters, looking after our visitors & guest speakers and to bring into play a buddy system for new members.

Also to keep an eye on attendance with a follow up phone call to those missing in action to enquire if something is not right, to tell them they are missed & what can we do to rectify the situation.  It is just as vital to retain existing members as it is to gain new ones.

Reintroduce the “What’s new in my business” & “This is my life” into the speaker spots for the benefit & information of the newer members.

FELLOWSHIP

Aim is to present three Fellowship events for each half of the Rotary year, will send a questionnaire home to the Fellows inviting some feedback as to what they would like to do.

Look to organize an evening to a live show (Evan Theatre at Panthers or Joan Sutherland Centre, Glenbrook Players) See if we can get a Preview to a new release movie?

A Thai Banquet at Chilli Jam.

An interclub activity with Penrith Valley & or Penrith, maybe a tenpin bowling evening or a wine tasting?

Combine with our partners for the Christmas Breakfast with partners being the Club’s guests.
