As D9970 District Governor 2010 – 2011 I am honoured to welcome you to the New Zealand - Australia Rotary Conference. During the 2010 - 2011 period our District experienced a series of major earthquakes and the Pike River Mine Disaster. More significantly we experienced the very essence of Rotary International as we received the messages, tangible support and care from so many. As Chair of the Christchurch Rotary Earthquake Charitable Trust funding and gifts from Rotarians throughout the world was allocated to support communities. Rotary Foundation Grants with significant input from Australian clubs provided urgently needed facilities.
The opportunity to be involved with Rotary District 9810’s Conference in Shepparton as Rotary International President Ravi’s Representative provided the opportunity to share experiences of community response to disaster in March 2016.
Recent vocational service focuses on leadership training as a member of the District Training Committee and as Co - Chair and Chair for New Zealand and the Pacific of South Pacific President Elect Training 2014 – 2018.
