District 1010 Conference 2019 - Rotary4U
Annual District Conference
Beach Ballroom Aberdeen on Saturday 19th October 2019
Registration is now OPEN.....
Incoming District Governor Alistair McNair invites every D1010 Rotarian, spouses, partners, prospective Rotarians, Rotaractors and E Club members to join him for our 69th annual conference in Aberdeen.
The conference is to be held on Saturday 19th October 2019 at the Beach Ballroom in Aberdeen which is celebrating its 90th Birthday in 2019 with additional activities on the Friday night.
The theme for the weekend is “Rotary 4 U” (as a celebration of what we do, both at home and abroad along with our Rotary Partners and Friends of Rotary). and along with the Rotary International Theme 2019-20 “Rotary Connects the World” together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change; across the globe, in our communities and in ourselves. The object of the conference is to ‘Unite people’ and ‘Take action’.
Our programme will include speakers from our Rotary Partners and Friends of Rotary. Already confirmed are:
Colin Powell: Purple4Polio ambassador
Colin fell ill with polio in 1949 when aged just 6 months old. An innocent swimming trip with father turned into paralysing his life. The nastiness of polio is the same now as it was then.
In 2009, Colin joined Radlett Rotary Club after delivering a talk and is now joining a new aspect of Rotary as a Purple4Polio ambassador. Due to his experiences, he is both passionate and committed to Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign.
Colin not only promotes the global eradication of polio, but also supports those, like himself, suffering the horrendously of Post-Polio Syndrome with the British Polio Fellowship.
Colin already holds the office of Rotary Liaison Ambassador from the British Polio Fellowship. Now in his dual ambassadorial role, he is in a unique position to ensure the aspirations of both Rotary and the British Polio Fellowship work in harmony.
David Glover: Shelterbox
David Glover has been a Rotarian for 25 years he is a Past President and a member of the Rotary Club of Tavistock in West Devon.
David has been inspired by the work of ShelterBox, and in 2004 became a ShelterBox volunteer, giving talks around the West Country to community organisations, with the aim to raise people’s understanding and awareness of the organisation’s aims and objectives and to ignite that same inspiration in other people that he had experienced himself.
David’s role has grown considerably; he now plays a major part in promoting ShelterBox across the UK and at national conferences. In addition to this, he has been involved in the recruitment of ShelterBox volunteers and promoting the work of ShelterBox at various public events and delivering talks to such organisations as Schools and Community Groups at local and national events.
In January 2008, David joined the ShelterBox team as a member of staff, with a role designed specifically to develop the promotion of ShelterBox in Rotary and the community as Liaison Officer, he will be requesting the support of Rotary Clubs across the UK in order to raise the ShelterBox profile at a national level. He will also be delivering regular training sessions throughout the UK to ensure our existing volunteers have the skills and development opportunities they need to promote ShelterBox across the UK.
David is directly responsible for the ShelterBox / Rotary District Co-ordinator and their teams; he visits them regularly to provide them with support and resources to enable them to achieve their goals.
David is also the International Service Chair for Rotary District 1175 (Devon & Cornwall)
