District Communications Chair , Lindsey Lam
 

Welcome to Fall and the last quarter of 2016! It is crazy to think how quickly these past ten months have flown by. For the remainder of this Rotary year, the district board would like to introduce the various committee chairs who work to serve clubs, club members, and the District Governor.

For those of you I have yet to meet, my name is Lindsey and I am the Communications Chair for Rotary District 5370. I am originally from Edmonton, Alberta, but currently reside in Vancouver, British Columbia. My Rotary journey began in 2011 as a member of the Edmonton Centennial Interact Club at Ross Sheppard High School, after which I became chair of the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) Committee; member of the Rotary Club of Edmonton Glenora; district Communications Chair; and now a (transferred) member of the Rotary E-Club of Canada One.

As the district Communications Chair, my role involves both serving the needs of the clubs in our district as well as the District Governor. Approximately three years. While I manage the district Facebook Page, Twitter handle, and newsletter, I am also responsible for ensuring clubs receive the resources and training needed to plan their strategic communications.

The district newsletter is a collection of stories written and/or collected by Rotarians in our district. All clubs are required to submit a minimum of three articles this Rotary year. If your club has not yet submitted a total of three stories, I encourage you to get started; whether you are a member or club executive, everyone has a Rotary story to share. Please ensure stories are no longer than 500 words and include a minimum of two images with your article. All stories can be emailed to the contact address listed to the right of this message.

Finally, all clubs are required to have a communications or public relations chair. Club Presidents, please ensure your club roster is up-to-date by November because an online communications and public relations 101 e-course will quickly be introduced. Further information will be provided in the weeks to follow, so please keep your rosters updated to receive the notifications.

Yours in Rotary,
 
Lindsey Lam

FORT McMURRAY FIRE RELIEF FUND UPDATE
A sincere thank you to the many Rotary clubs, organizations and individuals who have contributed to our district foundation’s Fort McMurray Fire Relief Fund.   Through your generosity we have received over $725,000 to date.
 
It will be some time before the funds will be disbursed.  As we have previously noted, this fund is meant for the long term rebuilding needs in the community.  In order to provide advice on those needs, the Rotary District 5370 Charitable Foundation is establishing an allocation advisory committee.  The committee will consist of two representatives from each of the two Fort McMurray Rotary clubs as well as two representatives from Wood Buffalo Regional Municipality (which includes Fort McMurray).  It will be chaired by DGE Frank Reitz, who is also a Fort McMurray resident.

Convention: City of peace
Though Atlanta has seen its share of violence and inequity over time, today it brims with reminders that there is another way. Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There, you can see the handwritten notes, speeches, and sermons of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., experience an interactive 1960s-era lunch counter “sit-in,” and learn more about persecuted groups all over the world. A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...
