Saturday, July 15 and Sunday, July 16 - Richmond is the site of a day of Assistant Governor Training and updating the District 5040 Strategic Plan. District Trainer Rebecca MacPherson has the AG training together and we have a productive day with our 2017 - 2018 team of Assistant Governors. We have a total of nine AG's in our District and they are key in working with our Rotary club Presidents and interfacing with the Governor. We welcome three new AG's this Rotary year - Wayne Connorton (Richmond - Delta), Carol Doyle (Sunshine Coast) and Bill Hellyer (North) who join the six who are continuing - Brian Downie (Northwest), Nancy Eidsvik (Burnaby - New Westminster), Anne Marie Ferguson (North Shore), Davinder Grewal (Vancouver), Lori Macala (Cariboo), and Liz Scott (Sea to Sky).

On Sunday we are joined by most of the District Committee Chairs and, with the help of Marni Fraser from the District Strategic Planning team, we craft an update to the District 5040 Strategic Plan.   It is a busy but very productive weekend setting our Rotary direction for the year.
