At our meeting last Tuesday evening we welcomed District Governor, Colin Burns to our club. 
DG Colin spoke of the Vision for Rotary International during this year as well as drilling down into it.  He also spoke about what our District's plans were to fulfill that vision.
Rotary International is hoping that in a united way we can take action to make lasting change in the world.  At the same time we should be looking at ways to increase Rotary's impact globally.  Finishing polio is a high priority for RI.  To enable this vision to become a reality, this year's current RI President Holger Knaak is encouraging clubs and districts to consider taking a strategic approach, including looking at developing 5 year plans; growing club membership; capitalising on the new normal (taking into account the changes all clubs have been forced to make due to Covid-19 and creating a 'new normal' with a blend of the old and new ways); and most of all making sure what you do is providing some fun for club members.
DG Colin has taken those ideas into account when developing his own vision for our district.  He would like to see clubs developing partnerships with other rotary clubs, community groups, government agencies and/or sponsors to enhance our work.  He would also like to see how we can make our communications systems simpler and easier to use - so that we do use them and get benefit from using them.  Colin is keen that we develop our own vision for what we would like to be in 5 years time and then if we need help to get there seek that help.  He would also like to see that clubs engage in at least one new project each year with all members having some input into that project. 
Thank you Colin for those words of wisdom.
