Full steam ahead for new Rotary club

Full steam ahead for new Rotary club Image

Rotary has decided to press ahead with a plan to establish a “satellite” club in Docklands.

The board of Rotary Central Melbourne on March 21 resolved to continue the process, having held an interest meeting in Docklands on February 20.

A report to the Rotary Central Melbourne board notes that a previous attempt to start a club in Docklands failed.

“… the lack of experience and knowledge of Rotary is possibly the reason why the Docklands club did not succeed,” the report said. “In 2009, the Docklands precinct was in the formative stages of residential development with relatively few corporate offices compared to today.”

“The further development of Docklands since 2009, together with the expected future growth and greater flexibility afforded by Rotary International in structuring a club, provides a great opportunity to develop a Rotary presence that is aligned to the current and future needs of Docklands as it develops into a community.”

Unlike 2009, Rotary is only aiming for a commitment from 15 new members to form the satellite club. At the February 20 “interest” meeting, it outlined its strategy to attract younger members.

“Millennials love to find ways to do things better, faster and smarter. We’re keen to prove ourselves in positions of responsibility,” Rotarian Mandi Wendt said.

“Within workplaces, there is an ambition gap, where millennials have unmet expectations of career experiences and progression. Rotary is uniquely placed to fulfil this gap. For millennial employees, Rotary provides a training ground in which they can flex, experiment, lead and prove themselves within a supportive and encouraging environment,” Ms Wendt said.
