Secretaries Newsletter for November 2011

By Roger Coopey - Posted on 08 November 2011

District Council

A reminder that the next District Council will be held on Tuesday 29th November at the Arden School, Knowle commencing at 7.00pm. Tea/coffee and biscuits will be available from 6.30pm. If your Club cannot be represented please try and make arrangements for any papers to be collected on your behalf.

Appeal for Help

A retired Doctor, Dr. Manzoor Alam, of the Sutton Coldfield Club visited the Convention in New Orleans earlier this year and joined a special interest group “Doctors in Rotary”. He would like to make contact with any other Doctors in District 1060 who are also members of this special interest group.

If you have any Doctors in your club could you draw this note to their attention. Please contact him direct - his details are in the attached PDF.

Special General Meeting

Clubs should hold a Special General meeting before the 31st December to elect Officers for the ensuing year and to receive and approve the accounts for the year ended 30th June.

Erdington Club

The Erdington Club are not meeting on the 29th December but I suspect very few Clubs will meet over the holiday period. Also Erdington will not be meeting at their normal venue on the 1st December because they are having a Carol service.

Edgbaston Convention

Edgbaston Convention are also moving venue on the 14th November (18.45 for 19.00) and the 19th December (19.00 for 19.30). On these two dates they will be at the Birmingham Medical Institute, 36 Harborne Road, Birmingham B15 3AF

On the 19th December it will be their Christmas Party which will take the form of a “Murder Mystery Evening”. Guests are welcome, cost £26 each to include pre dinner drink, two course meal and the entertainment. Contact Secretary David Fowler before the 16th December to make a booking.

The club will not be meeting on the 26th December or 2nd January.


You may recall that I recently circulated a request for details of Rotary speakers to be forwarded to Colin Guy who would compile a central list. Colin has begun to receive information and is looking to put details on the web site shortly.

The list of speakers has started on the web site.  Please remember you need to log on to read it - this is to protect contact information.

Christmas and New Year

If any other Club wishes to give notice of change of meeting place or dates around Christmas/New year can I suggest that you use 1060 news because my next newsletter is likely to be circulated close to the holiday period

Stop Press

The ballot for DGN 2012/13 is now underway. Do not forget to use your vote(s). Either send completed ballot papers to me in an envelope clearly marked “DGN Ballot” by 28th November or put them in the ballot box at the District Council on the 29th.
