Rotary International 2017-18 President Ian Riseley
Rotary Club of Sandringham, Victoria, Australia
 
President Ian has been a Rotarian for over 40 years. He is a professional accountant, an environmentalist, vegetarian, an avid sports fan, and has tremendous support from Juliet who is the first RI Presidential partner who was herself a former District Governor in Rotary. Ian is intelligent, capable, and has a keen sense of humour. Ian is the kind of person who takes what he does very seriously, but doesn’t take himself seriously. He would fit in perfectly in District 7820! 
Since 1949, Rotary International has had an annual theme which focuses our activities as Rotarians for that year. This is more for internal use than for the general public, for whom Service Above Self is a constant explanation of what drives us. According to RI President Ian Riseley, the 2017/18 theme of Rotary: Making a Difference represents what Rotary is and Rotary does, every day and in many ways. All those people who benefit from our great programs appreciate that Rotary exists to make a difference. Further, Rotary makes a difference to ourselves as Rotarians. We are improved as people by following the guiding principles that come from our mission statement and the Object of Rotary.
 
The world is a better place because of Rotary making a difference!
 
 
 
The Professional Development Day will take place Thursday May 24 at Manuels River Hibernia Interpretation Centre just outside of St. John's in Conception Bay South. Registration for both events will begin in January 2018.
 
In the meantime, if you have any questions, comments or wish to volunteer please contact Kathryn Atkin or Dave Works, Conference Co-Chairs.
RI President Ian Riseley has a passion for  Peace & Conflict Resolution and the Environment. He is also encouraging districts and clubs to take advantage of the new Rotary Public Image Campaign - "Rotary: People of Action" which was formally launched at the International Convention in Atlanta in June 2017.
 
In keeping with that spirit, DG Don has a few modest dreams for District 7820 for 2017-18. Three P.I.P.E. Dreams to be exact!
 
DG Don is seeking help from talented and committed Rotarians throughout the district to develop, by June 30, 2018 , sustainable district strategies for each of  Public Image, Peace and the Environment. If you are interested please let DG Don or your local Assistant Governor know.
 
There are also some simple steps that each club is encourage to do to support P.I.P.E. Dreams in our District.
At our District Conference, new District Chair for Youth Services, Michael Craig, presented a plan to significantly grow Youth Service programs in District 7820. 
 
The plan was enthusiastically received by Rotarians in attendance: Now we need some enthusiastic Rotarians to lead and work on some of the priority programs. Please consider the following five priority areas and contact Michael to let him know you would like to turn the plan into our collective reality.  Youth Protection; Youth Weekends; RYLA for Junior and Senior High; Adventures in (you name it); Short Term Exchanges.
