District Conference 26th – 28th October: PDG Robin Jones gave an update on the Conference at the District Council meeting.

The Tamworth Club have changed their meeting place. They now meet at Drayton Manor Golf Club, Centenary Drive, Drayton Park, Tamworth, B78 3TN.The club still meet on a Tuesday evening at 18.00 but they will not be meeting on the 28th August.

Membership Development Seminars

Membership development will continue to take high priority during 2012/13 and RIBI is planning a series of webinars to help and support clubs.

A webinar is a web-based seminar and these webinars will be similar to viewing a Powerpoint presentation with a voiceover with the added ability to have a Q&A session at the end. It is a cost effective way of delivering many elements of a seminar but from the comfort of your home or office.

Secretaries Newsletter for June 2012

This is the last newsletter of the current Rotary year. To those Secretaries who are retiring from the position then sincere thanks for your contributions and for those who are continuing if there is anything that you want covering in future editions then please let me know.

Secretaries Newsletter for April 2012

Apologies for not being present at the Assembly but I am afraid my elderly father had a bad fall the day before and I had to be with him. Sincere thanks however to Assistant Secretary John Parkinson for standing in.

John has given me feedback on the session which I hope those who attended found useful.

You will note that I have taken the colour out of the title block above which was requested to save ink for those who printed this document.
