Diana Bacon, Governance Optimizer
This past Tuesday, we heard from Diana Bacon, who provides advice and training to boards and executive groups of many kinds on proper meeting procedures and tools to help make their meetings more productive.
She talked about Steven Covey’s seven habits of effective people and how they can be applied in practise. In particular, she mentioned two habits, ‘begin with the end in mind’, and ‘find your voice and inspire others to find theirs’. She emphasised that it is important not to be afraid to speak up and let other know your concerns. She said that some of the most helpful things to have in place to improve your meetings are a set of current bylaws and a written set of meeting rules (usually including the use of Robert’s Rules of Order) that establish a meeting structure and expectations (orders of the day) to be followed at each meeting. These orders of the day can also be part of the bylaws. She also stated the meeting agendas and reports to be discussed should be sent out in advance. She supplied a sheet of commonly used motions, which included what, why, when and how to word a motion properly.
She gave many different examples of problems that can arise during a meeting and had some very good suggestions on how to deal with these. One of these suggestions was to set discussion time limits prior to a motion, in order to allow everyone wishing to speak a chance to do so. She said that the chair of the meeting has a lot of power to keep the meeting under control, but should also act as a mentor for members who may not be fully conversant with proper meeting procedures. In closing, she said we should ask ourselves, how do we intend to improve the meetings that we attend.
Maxine Hetherington, Classification Talk, Corrected

On Tuesday Feb 20, we heard from Maxine Hetherington, whose classification is Family Physician. Maxine grew up in a family of five children in rural Alberta. Her family then moved to Ontario, where they lived in Sudbury and also Ottawa. She initially studied nursing, but decided that it was not for her, as she was more interested in Science, so she went on to take a BSc. in Physiology and then earned a MSc. in Experimental Medicine. During this time she married, became a mother of two children and then a single mother. She subsequently went on to study Medicine and in 1998, she completed her residency in Family Medicine in Alberta.

She then took a rural locum position, where she did clinical, hospital and emergency work. She said that it was a steep learning curve at first. She loved rural medicine and stayed on practising rural medicine in Leduc County for over seventeen years. During this time, she was living in Edmonton and commuting out to Leduc each day. In August of last year, she decided to move her practice closer to home, so she joined a practise based in the city of Edmonton.

She enjoys cycling and has cycled in many places around the world. She also enjoys playing golf, but emphasised that she does not keep score. She was prompted to join rotary in an effort to become more connected to the city, and things that are happening in Edmonton. We would like to welcome her to our rotary club and look forward to getting to know her better.

Patrick Gibson, New Hope School Fundraising Presentation

New Hope School

Our Rotary group has partnered in a joint venture with the Rotary Club of Pretoria to help raise funds for the New Hope School in Pretoria. Patrick Gibson has put together a presentation that he will be making to the other rotary clubs in our area to encourage them to help us with this venture. Our goal is to put enough funding in place for us to be able to apply for a Rotary International matching grant.
Patrick gave us the same presentation he will be making to other local rotary groups. It included a short introduction on the New Hope School, followed by a video that has been prepared by the New Hope School. The New Hope School has been one of the projects of our club for some years now, and most of our members are well aware of the work they do in schooling for handicapped children in the Pretoria area. They provide many services above and beyond the usual schooling activities, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and many others, as needed by their students.
They receive only basic funding from the local government, so must fundraise to provide these other services. Some of the specific projects our funds could be used for would be a specialised playground, or programs to provide technical skills such as kitchen skills, nail and hair salon skills and sewing skills.  Patrick has also put together a ‘Go Fund Me’ page on the web, on which people can get more information, view the video and make contributions. We will also be adding a link on our Rotary web page to this site.
