President's Message
Mary Crammond
June was Rotary Fellowship Month.  Rotarians with similar recreational interests, vocations, health and medical issue-orientated interests are encouraged by Rotary to connect in fellowship.  During June many fellowship groups, both national and international, were brought together through projects, activities and events in celebration of Rotary Fellowship Month.  A number of Coast Rotarians are Caravan enthusiasts and they had a celebration at a Rodeo up country.
However, Rotarians are always thinking, planning and finding ways to serve their communities and many fellowships use their special interests to serve others.  For example, the Canoeing Rotarians organise clean-ups of polluted rivers, members of the International Computer Users Fellowship conduct training sessions for those in their communities and the International Fellowship of Rotarian Scuba Divers join to undertake service projects on each diving trip.  Those are just a few.  Rotary has an international Fellowship interest group for just about everybody.  Joining Rotary allows you to meet people of similar interests all over the world. 
July is Rotary New Year and I’d like us to extend our thoughts of Fellowship to the Fellowship within our Club.  The Fellowship of caring for each other.  Janet and John, who recently lost their son Will, have expressed in writing and to individuals, their gratitude for the love and care shown to them by their fellow Rotarians over the past months.  Let’s ensure that the welfare of our club and its members are well cared for so we in turn are strong to serve our community.

Our speakers last week were Libby Payne and Holly Ayres.  What joy and satisfaction we shared listening to their experiences.  (see below).  Managing the Youth portfolio last year was one of the most stimulating and satisfying experiences of my life.  Meeting the amazingly motivated teachers at our local schools, interviewing the students for RYPEN and realising what tremendous talents our young Coasties have and listening to their appreciation of the services Rotary provides through RYPEN, MUNA,RYLA, RYDA, Science Week and various other programs made me so proud to be part of this amazing Rotary family.  Do yourself a favour and offer to take on the Youth Portfolio in your club. 
This coming week, we have our business meeting so there is no guest speaker.  Please come along and share true fellowship in getting to know each other better and planning our future together. Please also bring along your ideas for Club Speakers and any ideas you have might have for us to connect within our club, our community, our country, our world.

Paula Martin was appointed to the Board of Directors of Central Coast Business Chamber this year. She has been with the Chamber for 14 years and brings a wealth of experience from a variety of other organisations.
  • NSW Business Chamber has over 800 staff, 8 regional managers and over 22,000 members and some overseas offices. Their role is to help businesses cut red tape, reduce taxes and improve skills.
  • In 2036 Cc population will increase to 40,000 people, city people will look to the north for a better lifestyle.
  • We produce a high amount of exports
  • We need a good business strategy to develop businesses on the CC.
  • We need to encourage government to help promote business
  • CCCouncil is developing a 40%year investment strategy and to thrive we need to revamp our CBDs and develop our anchor points e.g. hospitals, Universities etc
  • Youth unemployment is at an all- time high. And the overall unemployment figure is 5.5% and only 14 businesses on the Coast employ over 200 people.
  • Careers Councellors in schools are out of date about career opportunities.
  • Establishment of an industry led training hub is needed to offer young people connections to job pathways. And offer more school-based apprenticeships.
  • We need to also accelerate plans to widen the Pacific Highway through Wyong and improve transport connectivity.
