Altona City Rotary eBulletin: 17 Sept. 18
President's Notes
Hi Everyone,

Our speaker this week was Marilyn Olliff who shared her vision for the Hobson Bay Wetlands Centre – a space to connect with nature and provide educational opportunities.

She asks us to vote (pick 3) for “nurturing-nature-and-our-community” on https://pickmyproject.vic.gov.au/

There is also a project from the New Leaf Café – you may recall Debbie Reynolds spoke at our club a few weeks back.

Thanks to everyone who volunteered at the Bunnings Family Fun day – we connected with members of the community and raised awareness of Rotary. Hopefully it will translate into membership. 

The Men’s Shed wishes to donate $1000 to Drought Relief and we will send this with our own contribution to RC Longreach.

Yours in Rotary,

P Bronnie

Rotary Value Proposition for Young People
Michael Walstrom (D9630) conducted a survey regarding young professionals, and learned that young professionals are looking for networking and mentorship, but have concerns about time, money and family commitments. Rotary can offer considerable value to young people, to enhance their personal and professional development E.g: 
Networking: People do business with those they know, like and trust. Rotary can help to expand networks.
Leadership: Through Rotary, young people are able to establish themselves as leaders in the community. "Come, join us, be a leader" is a strong value proposition.
Mentorship: Many young people are interested in working with community leaders and in being mentored.
Time & Money: Clubs like ours have increasing flexibility to address time and money issues...
Family Commitments: Family is important and families are welcome!
 
What other value propositions does ACRC have for young people? Let's fine-tune our messages to encourage younger members!
