FEATURE PRESENTATION

Past President and current Club Trainer Warren Philp delivered a very timely overview on Rotary as a whole and our own Port Arthur Rotary club.
Past President Kevin Holloway provided the full tech support. 

It was timely because members are always beneficiaries of updates on  club functionality in these ever changing dynamic times (right now emerging out of the recent pandemic and getting back to some degree of normality, with meetings now at Lakehead University). His presentation on Power Point is available on the left side of our webpage..


His address is very aptly named: WHAT'S OUT THERE FOR YOU.
The subtitle is: ROTARY IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT.
There is a great deal to be done and be proud of.

The key messaging involved acquisition of skills and ease entering the club digital platform ClubRunner.
The tutorial clearly explained the mechanism for using this effectively. Members may need updating of their Log in User Name and Password.

There is a real wealth of information therein, all the way from the basics of personal id, to being informed in social media, and copious opportunities within the world Rotary movement.

The club is indebted to Warren for his leadership in catalyzing club excellence. Hopefully a follow up in the future will cement much of this material.
