DRR Monthly Address – January 2013

Greeting Rotaractors

Happy New Year and I wish everyone a prosperous and successful year. I hope this year brings further growth and development to our Rotaract family. As we emerge from the Christmas season, full of relaxation and reflection, I urge Rotaractors to work assiduously in completion of their plans and objectives as we draw near to the close of the 2012/2013 Rotaract year. As we progress through this busy third quarter, there are some upcoming events which must be highlighted. Further details about these events can be received from Presidents and District Liaison Officers (DLO’s).

  1. World Rotaract week – 11th– 17th March 2013
  2. Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) – Hosted in Guyana 21st -23rd March
  3. Presidential Citation
  4. District Conference – second payment deadline 28th February

Pleases make every effort to support these initiatives and seize the opportunities to promote the ideal of Rotaract.

It has been brought to the District’s attention that Rotary International has distributed new guidelines regarding Rotarians supporting Rotaract training initiatives, with particular focus at a District level. Therefore with District Conference coming up, I urge club Presidents to go through this policy with their respective Rotary clubs to ensure your attendance at our District Conference, since the training provided at RETS will groom and develop the incoming board to serve and work in their respective clubs for the incoming year.

On a different note, the Rotaract Clubs of Georgetown Central, Georgetown, University of Guyana, Piarco (UWI) and St Augustine West were visited in the month of January. I would like to thank all Presidents and DLO’s for hosting DDRR Giselle and myself at their respective meetings and providing their inputs and support which will undoubtedly contribute to improving our District. To the clubs in Guyana, I want to personally thank you for providing an action packed weekend and we definitely can’t wait for RYLA!

Rotaractors, I wish you all the best for this quarter and urge you to make every effort to support one another as we draw closer to the end of this Rotaract year.
