Information and Recent News
Welcome to a new Rotary year
It seems like this day has come very quickly . About two and a half years ago I received the nomination as District 6330 Governor for the 2017-2018 year – something I consider an honour and a privilege. As we enter this new year, our district, and Rotary International more generally, look forward to exciting, and challenging, times.
Rotary has accomplished so much. Polio eradication may soon become a significant part of Rotary's legacy. We are, quite literally, on the verge of a countdown to zero - complete eradication - an achievement that very likely could not have been reached without Rotary’s involvement. We can, and should, be justifiably proud. But, we need to see it through, to continue the effort until eradication is complete.
Polio Eradication - Drop to Zero campaign
At the International Convention in Atlanta last month, Rotary International announced the Polio Eradication "Drop to Zero" campaign. Several governments and organizations have pledged $1.2 Billion US dollars to help drop to zero - to fully eradicate polio.

Environmental Sustainability, and Peace

In February 2018, the eyes of the Rotary World will be on Vancouver British Columbia, Canada. Zones 24 and 25 will host the Presidential Conference on Environmental Sustainability and Peace - one of six international peacebuilding conferences planned for the 2017-18 Rotary Year.  President-Elect Ian Riseley has made environmental sustainability a major focus for his year and we are honored that he has chosen Vancouver to hold the first Presidential Conference on this key area.
