Theme pins were given out to those members not present at change over Saturday night:
Mike Purslow
Shain Forth
Peter Teakle
Reminder to all members to seek out members of the community to be invited to our meetings in an effort to grow our membership.
Also asked everyone to be on the look out for interesting guests to speak at our meetings. Any thoughts to PP Chris Edwards before our calendar meeting on 18th July when Vaughan, Susan, Chris and I will meet to update the calendar for the year.
I will be asking everyone to try and make committee meetings which will be available on the website.  Directors will then be asked to report to the meeting the following Monday on the discussions that took place.
Please respond to Michael Raj in a timely manner regarding meeting attendance  as Michael is doing his role remotely and does not have the ability to chase people up if they haven’t responded.

District Resource Network
The District Resource Network is a new resource for Clubs. It was introduced by Rotary International as part of its plan to expand project enhancement to projects in all six Areas of Focus. 
Project enhancement comprises measures to assist the sponsoring Rotary Club to deliver higher impact, higher quality, sustainable projects.  One such measure is creation of a Register of Experts who can be called upon by Clubs for advice at all or any of the project stages from initiation,  planning, assembling resources, to implementation and evaluation.
Action Sought - Please read the material available on our District website, think of people whom you consider may meet our need for expert advisors, give them a copy of the Registration of Interest form and ask them to consider registering.
