Are you interested in making our club a vibrant club?
Register for Leading Rotary Now Alice Springs 2018 (see Events Calendar for registration details and click on the 'Leading Rotary Now' under May 26th).
Leading Rotary Now gives you additional knowledge and enhances your skills. It shows you where you can get support for your role in the Club. It introduces you to the RI Theme for the next year, the RI President Elect’s priorities and provides opportunities to collaborate with other clubs and the District Team.
 
It allows you to share ideas, projects and needs and show you how you access the resources of the District Leadership Team.
It will introduce the new District and the part you can play in determining how that District will support Clubs.
Rotary’s 2017-18 International President, Australia’s Ian Riseley, wants a trachoma-free Australia by 2021, Rotary’s 100th year in Australia. The World Health Organisation has a global goal to eliminate trachoma by 2020. Trachoma is an infectious eye disease that can be prevented with good hygiene practices. But it is still present in remote Aboriginal communities and can lead to permanent blindness. The work of the Australian Government, the Fred Hollows Foundation and Indigenous Eye Health to treat trachoma infections has seen rates in affected communities reduced substantially. But now, we need to ensure that hygiene practices and the community environments are improved to completely eliminate the disease.
Peter Schaefer has just shared a most amazing three-day experience, hosting the RI President Ian Riseley in Alice Springs on his official visit to the Central Australia region. The weather was marvellous throughout his visit and Ian commented daily on the ‘horizon to horizon’ expanse of blue skies.
