Stories and Club happenings

The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) program is a series of fast-paced, interactive, one-day courses offered to refine a Rotarian’s leadership skills and increase their base of knowledge in Rotary.
Courses are fun, topical, interactive, and geared to busy business, professional and community leaders who want to be more effective leaders in their vocation and Rotary club, and more knowledgeable Rotarians. Participants return to their clubs with enthusiasm, new contacts, fresh ideas, an increased understanding of their potential as Rotarians, and valuable skills impacting their potential leadership in the club.
The full program has three parts. It is best to take the parts in sequence however that is not always possible. Please discuss with the Registrar or any member of the Faculty.
The Rotary Leadership Institute was introduced into District 5060 in 2008. It is a grassroots training program that has been growing and expanding since 1992. Its purpose is to help future club leaders (not necessarily club presidents) to prepare for their club and community leadership role through a quality training and educational experience. RLI has spread to over 350 districts in the Rotary world and has been translated into ten languages. RLI is an unofficial affiliate of Rotary International; it is not an official program of Rotary International nor under its control. - See more at rotary.org
 
 
 
While Mackie waits for the Finnish days to get longer, she continues to blog about her adventures.
I know she would love to hear from anyone from the club!

These happily compassionate souls experienced the joy of giving to the Boys and Girls Club at John Tod School in Kamloops.  After a huge turkey dinner was served, Santa (Al Milton) appeared and distributed gifts to all, to the sounds of screams of joy and total fun.

Our recent AGM brings us new blood for our Board of Directors, so HUGE thanks to Tammy Robertson, Bryce Herman, Tony Gilbert, Sandra Blair, Colin Willis, Alan Milton, and Wade Billey. Kudos to those members who are able to continue on the Board supporting the Club.

Directorship assignments are still to be finalized.

Special thanks and recognition for Roxanna Ferguson who steps in line to be Daybreak President for 2017/2018.

 

 
Clubrunner has a feature called "Friends of the Club"
It is used to be able to invite Non-members to events, to receive the Club Bulletin, volunteer with us at events, and basically stay in touch with what the Club is up to.
They appear under "Friends" in the selection list of Events and Emails. They must be selected by the person creating the event/email, they don't just automatically get bombarded with club stuff. wink
 
These people can be added by any  member. All you need is their name, email, and permission to involve them in our communication. The tab is in Member Area after you login.
It is a great way for past-members, spouses who have drank the koolaid, and for anyone else who would like to stay involved with the Club.
 
This is different than "Newsletter Subscribers" which is a public link on our Homepage for any Tom, Dick or Harriot to receive our Newsletter/Bulletin. They sign themselves up, but we control the list. Currently the list contains past speakers, past students of the month, past District Governors, other Club Presidents, and random crazed individuals. Think about it... they WANT our Newsletter/Bulletin!
 

 
 

Our Club made a commitment to TRU to provide $1000 bursaries to Students in need, who fit basic criteria we created at the beginning. To fund these bursaries we created an endowment whose "interest" would fund future bursaries.

In an effort to support Imageadditional recipients, and to add a Fellowship opportunity for our members, Roxanna has graciously organized Bursary Dinners, where a member hosts and provides dinner for 2-4 members and their spouse/guest and receives a $100 donation to the Bursaries in their name, and each guest couple donates $100/couple to the Bursaries. A bottle of wine is always appreciated to share with the meal.

To put a Daybreak ZING to the whole thing, the Guests don't know where they are going or what they are getting for dinner till the day of the dinner.

Did you know that your Newsletter email is tailored to you, showing at the bottom, your commitments to Events and Committees?

Do you have the Clubrunner App on your phone, that allows you to access the Club members contact lists and call/email with just one touch?

 

 
 

This is the team that makes sure the room is set up with all the important stuff to run our meetings. Once the meeting is over, they are the ones that put the stuff away again. Watch out, they are also looking for the most innovative way to fine you also, so be on your guard. These folks also look after guests and do the Happy Bucks.

 
 
 
On our Webpage we have a NEW link to email the Club Secretary your Make-up information. Look on the left side under Club Links... report your visits to other clubs, attendance at work projects and events.. and keep both YOUR attendance up, and the Club's attendance record up as well!
 

 
 

We use our website to communicate new Events and Announcements to the membership.

You can reduce how many you receive by replying to the Events, or using your Password, you can login and select Attend/Decline. Either way will keep you from getting any more "Invitations" to that Event. The system knows who has responded and only Invites those who we have no response from.

If you need a new password, just ask! (reply)

The Events tool allows us to ensure we have enough volunteers or attendees when we commit to help somewhere, or plan a get together.

Thanks!
