As you may recall DG TIm was hoping that we would be able to travel to clubs to provide bespoke training but with Lockdown continuing that is not going to happen any time soon. Many clubs like my own have had to forego face to face meetings, fundraisers and community events and are ticking over by means of Zoom meetings.
However as the optimist would say there are no such things as problems just opportunities and whilst we cannot meet each other Rotary Learning is fulfilling the Rotary Opens Opportunies mandate by providing a range of useful online courses ....Lockdown Learning!
Please find below a notice that DG Tim has approved and which will be appearing in the next District Newsletter. In the spirit of belt and braces would you please circulate it to your members who may find a course or two a useful way of filling time that would otherwise have been spent on a cold wet street shaking buckets at passers by.
Yours in Rotary
District Leadership and Development Support.
Learning opportunities as the nights draw in
You cannot meet in the pub, do any fund raising or carry out community activities so apart from Zoom what is a Rotarian to do as the nights draw in?
All is not lost! Remember:
