North Sydney Sunrise

We are men and women who meet regularly in North Sydney for fellowship, networking and breakfast!

It's a great way to make new friends. We come from many walks of life and backgrounds with a common goal - service to the community (local and worldwide) through fellowship.

05 July 2022 - Rotary Regionalisation Program
Kalma McLellan 

While Rotary International (RI) had been thinking about how we continue to be relevant, so too had a group of forward-thinking Rotarians from our zone.  In 2021 we put our hand up and formally requested the RI Board to support us to take our thinking further and explore a different structure that could enable us to be more effective at addressing challenges and sustaining Rotary for the future.

They have given us their support and now we are asking you to support a pilot to explore, develop and test new ways of doing Rotary appropriate for our part of the Rotary world, all the time ensuring we do not lose what we value – service and friendships.

Kalma McLellan is the Regionalisation District Rep 2021-23.   Kalma will explain what the program is and about the launch of the Regionalisation campaign to inform all Rotarians about what our future may look like.  In other words, why and what is the Regionalisation program?

Kalma McLellan was a former Mosman Rotaractor and joined the Rotary Club of Ryde in 2010, serving on the Board in various positions and as President in 2014-15.   She served as District Governor in 2019-20. Professionally, Kalma worked in the vocational education sector, overseeing leadership and management training to corporate clients.

 Guests are always welcome.
