"Rotary Opens Opportunities" is the theme for 2020-21 and our incoming Rotary International President Holger Knaack speaks about it and then District leaders present and discuss with participants Rotary’s Change Model in the first of the Our Year Ahead 2020-21 webinars.
All members of District 5040, incoming club officers, committee members, new Rotarians, even potential members can take advantage of the Our Year Ahead 2020-21 sessions from the comfort of home or office at no cost of COVID-19 exposure, and of time for travel or expense. The Spring sessions, normally presented in five different centres over two full days, will now be offered as six webinars over the coming weeks.
Dave Hamilton, District Governor Elect, 2020-21, invites all District 5040 members to join him and District Trainer, Keith Dinwoodie, for the first in a series of Year Ahead 2020-21 webinars.
At the first webinar, hear the message from Rotary International President 2020-21 Holger Knaack, learn a bit about him, how he came up with his theme -- Rotary Opens Opportunities -- and what it means to him.
Then learn about Rotary’s new change model that will help you as you make the changes needed to move forward and continue to keep Rotary relevant in the world today.
