The Rotary Day of Dialogue was a tremendous success. The event was the first Rotary Day of Dialogue held anywhere.
The event was held at the Wosk Centre for Dialogue, Simon Fraser University in Vancouver.
More than 120 Rotarians gathered from 9 different districts. A small but vocal group of Rotaract and Interact members joined in the presentations and discussion.
This event provided a unique opportunity for Rotarians to engage in meaningful dialogue of what they want Rotary to look like. There was no shortage of positions, thoughts and opinions on how clubs can grow membership, expand service and give greater support to our communities.
Every one left with a few aha moments and the task to but the new ideas into action with their Rotary club.
Each Initiator or as one person referred to herself as an Instigator gave a short presentation followed by questions, answers and discussion.
Topics included effective clubs, new generations, young professionals, international and local service, Rotary’s public image and what is a good Rotarian.
Each presentation was video recorded.  Watch this website for links to the video presentations.
A special thanks to DG John Anderson for his vision to bring this idea to fruition, Kevin Evans from the North Vancouver Rotary Club for exceptional skills in moderating and PDG Chris Offer for coordinating the Rotary Day of Dialogue.
