District 9675 Governor 2019-20
The Sun-Herald City to surf
This year it will be my 30th Sydney City2Surf. I think this is worth celebrating and would like you to join me on 11th August. I have set up a team "Rotary District 9675".  I would also like to make it a great year for Australian Rotary Health so I have set up a fundraising page.  You can donate to my page or set up your own fundraising page when you have registered.  Please ask all your friends and family to donate to Australian Rotary Health.
 
New Districting
 
Districts, Clubs and Rotarians are putting in a terrific effort to halt the decline in membership.  While this has slowed the rate of loss somewhat, contemporary methods of rendering service have changed from the traditional service club and a new approach is needed.  One option (and one that is mandated by RI if District membership falls below 1100) is to grasp the initiative and form a larger District.
 
As PRID Noel Trevaskis said "Larger districts are just the platform for change as we move forward together to face the challenge of change".
 
Melbourne Airport welcome to Rotarians
And the winner is Melbourne!
It is with great excitement that we announce Melbourne as the host city for the 2023 Rotary International Convention, the largest conference secured this century for Victoria.
 
Melbourne is a Big Events City! Set to deliver over $88 million to the Victorian economy, the Convention is the most valuable conference ever won for the state, with the four-day event anticipated to attract more than 20,000 Rotarians from around the world. The global spotlight will be on Melbourne and how we present ourselves to the world.
