Our Guest Speaker was PDG Jessie Harman
Jessie has been a Rotarian for the past seventeen years, a member of the Rotary Club of Wendouree Breakfast in District 9780, Australia.
Jessie is now also the very first female Rotary International Director-Elect 2021-2023 for Zone 8. In addition, she is also the chair of the RI Membership Board.
Her presentation covered some keys areas of the challenges and the changes in club membership. Jessie’s first experience of Rotary was as a participant of RYLA in 1987, and she maintains an active interest in Rotary’s youth and leadership programs to this day.  She is keenly interested in membership development, and is co-author of ‘101 strategies for recruiting and retaining members’. A most interesting talk and we hope we continue to get the benefit of Jessie's passion and drive for all things Rotary !
