Greetings from Roger Bougeard our Club President
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Jersey. Our club’s history dates back to 1924.
We are a club of over 55 ordinary people. Rotary is a leadership organisation of business and professional men and women united worldwide. There are today over 31,000 Rotary Clubs in 167 countries with over 1.2 million members.
Rotary's focus is in promoting world peace and providing service to all people in need in our community and throughout the world. Rotary raises hundreds of millions of dollars annually to further these goals.
We believe that a strong community comes from supporting one another. We do this by putting "service above self". We take on projects that support the local, national and international communities.
Our Club meets regularly, we get to know each other, form friendships, and through that, we are able to get things done in this community – and have fun doing it.
I am delighted to take on the role of President of the Rotary Club of Jersey for the year from 1st July 2016 and my role as Club President is the same as that of every Club President, past and future, which is to lead the Club and ensure it functions effectively and hopefully leave it a better Club at the end of the year.The main areas of focus for the club in my Presidential year will be as follows:-
- To make the club more attractive and more accessible to ladies and to younger members and to recruit members who are more representative of our community and professions;
- To undertake projects to benefit the community whilst raising the profile of Rotary;
- To work on youth projects to benefit our young people, including the development of the Peace programme and to explore participation in the Youth Leadership awards and Youth Exchange scheme;
- To harness the club’s abilities for development of and participation in international projects;
- Now that we have an exceptional resource at the Good Companions Club to ensure its financial sustainability as running costs increase;
- To encourage Fellowship and fun in achieving the above
