Earlier this week President Jean-Marc advised our program this week would be in the form of a Business Meeting apprising members of details from last Thursday's afternoon's Directors meeting. Accordingly, reports would be provided by members who attended the meeting and were present at today's Zoom Meeting.
     From President Jean-Marc we learned that the developing a Strategic Plan is a high priority identified during the past year, and this process will be led by Club's leadership Team of President (Jean-Marc), President Elect (Pat Dell), Vice President (Jeff Barber) and Past President (Jack Wozniak). The Team will update and involve the members during the process.
     Membership Growth and Fundraising are key components of the Club's focus for the next 12 months and beyond. Under the direction of John Van Koll and Charles Sadzamare, respectively, these areas require our individual and collective attention and participation. Jean-Marc noted that from conversation at Presidents' Council, it appears the RC of Regina Industrial Parks is having some fundraising success and may provide clues to future approaches Eastview can mimic.
     The President repeated his written invitation for Club members to advise him of where they would like to serve in the coming Rotary year. If you wish to continue with your current committee role this was fine, but he indicated there were opportunities in Club Administration and on the Service Project Committees (Community, International and Youth). There are also two leadership roles which need to be filled, namely in Public Relations and Rotary Foundation. Ann Grahame, Chair of Youth Service Projects spoke to the need to replace 2 key people in her area, and would welcome additional members to assist with aspects of their work.
Treasurer Shannon Windrim told us that the final touches on the Club's Website will allow for a "Pay on line" feature. Unfortunately Charles Sadzamare had audio issues with his computer, as we were unable to hear him, so he will have more to say next week.
     President Elect Pat Dell indicate she is working with Cory Daly orienting him to the Club Administration portfolio and specifically lining up speakers for our regular meetings. President Elect Jeff Barber will be working on identified tasks at the Directors meeting and will be able to provide more detail after the August Directors meeting.
     In response to Jean-Marc's invitation for comments, Bob Durston noted within Youth Services, Rotary Clubs must have a member identified as the Youth Harassment Officer. The President will add this to the list of unfilled roles.
Thank you, President Jean-Marc, Directors and Chairs for your leadership on our behalf and for opening "doors of opportunity".
