Here is a copy of Peter's 3-minuter from the RYLA Meeting. I thought Peter's presentation was excellent.
 
I am considering starting a group titled SAUA  Society against using acronyms although the idea may not go well with Rotary.
a search of the web shows that Rotary have at least 90 officially recognised acronyms. I won't bore you with the list as it makes rather dry reading. But is does give me the opportunity to highlight some Rotary activities which you may find illuminating.
So let's look at a small selection :-  COL    ICUFR  RIS    RAG
COL Council on Legislation.
As mentioned by PDG Phillip The Council on Legalisation meets every three years and gives the members of clubs the opportunity to effect the rules under which RI operates. The next meeting is in April 2019
ICUFR International computer  Users Fellowship of Rotarians
A world wide common interest group who conduct web based forums to discus computer issues. I highlight this group as it illustrates how Rotarians around the world interact with each other across national, political and racial boundaries.
RIS  Rotary International Scholar
Through its Global Grants scheme, The Rotary Foundation fund the appointment of a Rotary Scholar who works within the Rotary avenues of Interest. One such Scholar is Lusine Mehabyn, a native of Armenia. Lusine's program is measuring and stopping public corruption..in particular government corruption
RAG Rotarian Action Group
A Rotarian Action Group is an autonomous group of Rotarians, family members, program participants and alumni who are experts in a particular field, such as microcredit or water and sanitation. Group members share their expertise by collaborating with districts and clubs  on service projects.
For example:
·       The Rotarian Action Group for Population & Development partnered with Rotary clubs in Germany, Austria, and Nigeria to reduce maternal death by 60 percent at 25 hospitals in northern Nigeria with a program to prevent and treat obstetric fistula, a serious birth injury.
·       Rotarians for Family Health & AIDS Prevention Rotarian Action Group organizes an annual event that provides comprehensive health services to nearly 500,000 people in hundreds of locations in Africa and parts of India. These services include screening for HIV/AIDS, TB, malaria, diabetes, blood pressure cancers, and more..
Some more groups:-
against slavery;      for Peace ;         for endangered species;     against child slavery;  for population development;    against diabetes;     for blindness prevention.
 
So,  the acronyms may be boring but look inside and a light shines on the wonderful opportunities  Rotary gives us for Service Above Self
 
The District Conference in 2018 hosted by The Rotary Club of Yarrawonga Mulwala will be held in Mulwala from Thursday, 22nd March, 2018 to Sunday, 25th March, 2018.  Please make a note in your diaries.
