Rotary Zone Institutes:
Best education resource
PDG Bob Aitken
Penrith Rotary Zones 7B and 8
JORDAN Fallon is the 21-year-old Rotary club
president who captivated the Melbourne
Zone 8 Institute last year with his enthusiasm
to learn more about Rotary.
Jordan presented a keynote address to the
event, telling of the work the Rotary Club
of Kurri Kurri, NSW, is doing in spreading
awareness of mental health issues among
young people. Jordan is now urging all interested Rotarians to take advantage
of the “open” Institute planned for Penrith, NSW, from September 1-3 this
year and absorb the “rivers of Rotary knowledge” emanating from senior
leaders throughout Australia, New Zealand and the South-West Pacific –
along with special guests from the US and other countries.
Zone Institutes are normally available only to past, present and future senior
leaders of Rotary International (district governors) and their partners, but the
trend in recent years has been to share the resource with the general Rotary
membership who attend Future Leaders’ Seminars held in conjunction with
Rotary International director elect Noel Trevaskis is convenor of the Institute
and has issued a general invitation to all dedicated Rotarians to attend and see
what the Rotary world has to offer away from their own special communities.
Unique in today’s Rotary world, Jordan is about to complete his year as
president of the Rotary Club of Kurri Kurri and states that, for a lay member
like him, the Zone 8 Institute opened a number of connections and contacts
that have really enriched his Rotary experience.
“The Melbourne Institute provided me with the opportunity to meet with
Rotary International president elect John Germ, RI directors Jennifer Jones
and Guiller Tumangan, RI president nominee Ian Riseley, RI director elect Noel
Trevaskis, RI past director Ron Beaubien and many others. They were truly
inspirational and my year as president of my Rotary club had much more
impact and enjoyment.
“There are members across our region – young and old – who may not
wish to hold senior positions in Rotary, but who want to be engaged in the
many special projects with which our organisation is involved. The Institute is
the peak body for discussion on many of these projects and it is vital they are
able to attend and engage in these conversations.
“I will be forever grateful for the opportunities and will certainly be at the
Penrith Institute in September.”
Registration details and more information on the combined Rotary Zones
7B and 8 Institute planned for Penrith, NSW, from September 1-3 is available
Jordan Fallon, president of the
Rotary Club of Kurri Kurri, NSW.
