It doesn’t matter where you live as our members come from throughout the Auckland region to listen to stimulating speakers addressing business, political and social issues. Naturally you’ll network and socialise with others from a wide variety of vocational backgrounds, so it’s a great way to meet new people and an effective way of staying in touch with the community and world you live in. We are not your usual Rotary club; expect occasionally, the unexpected.

MEETING THE NEEDS OF YOUR COMMUNITY
 
As individuals, it is sometimes difficult to affect change, fundraise or be noticed. But the cumulative capacity of Rotarians working together makes Rotary very powerful.
 
Members are all part of working committees that meet on a monthly basis to plan and undertake Club projects. The committees work to support youth, local community, national, international, vocational and environmental causes.
 
Upcoming Events

Professor Shaun Hendy, from University of Auckland, is a frequent commentator on scientific matters on radio (eg. Bryan Crump's RNZ show) and TV, and has great talent in explaining complex things in simple ways.
 
Shaun leads off with a presentation reporting his personal journey over a 12-month period to respond to climate change. This was the subject of his recently released book.
 
 
 
Shaun will be followed by 3 talented senior secondary school students whom our club selected and sponsored for the 2-week National Science & Technology Forum held in Auckland in January.  They are Emma Taylor from Glendowie College, and Finn Welham & Julio Romero from Sacred Heart College. They are keen to share their personal experiences and impact on their future study and career choices. 
 
  
Every one of us as a member can help grow our club.  It is easy but you do need to do some simple things.
 
On Saturday 8 February the club started a series of posts on the club Facebook page that shows the practical benefits of becoming a member using non-Rotary language.  Please share these messages onto your own Facebook page.  Please also give some thought as to who you could invite to one of our meetings.  Often we are reluctant because we think these people will be pressured in some way ... not so.  People can come along to look and experience a meeting with no expectation they have to take their look any further. 
 
If you would like our club Membership Director, Donald Bowie, to help you invite people or to chat to someone who may be interested, please call him on 0274 752 473 / donald.bowie.dbc@gmail.com
 
If you see a visitor at a meeting please make sure they have the best possible St Johns Rotary experience by making sure they are well looked after.
