WHAT HAPPENS AT A MEETING?
We gather every first and third Monday evening of every month at 6.30pm for 7.00pm at the Buckingham hotel, 1130 Nepean Highway Highett, 3190. For the first 15 minutes, we have ‘fellowship’ and catch up with each other at the bar. Before each meeting, we pay for our meals, grab our Rotary name badge and head inside for the meeting.The Chairman opens the meeting with Rotary Grace and a Toast to Rotary. After the toasts, the President welcomes Club members, visiting Rotarians and guests. During the meeting, we eat our evening meal while all Directors are given the opportunity to address the Club with their business. After dinner, the Chairman introduces the guest speaker who presents their session. Guests may be any person, a business or government representative, director of one of the charitable organizations to which the Club contributes, a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar, Rotary Exchange student from another nation, or a community leader. There is opportunity to ask questions of the guest speaker on completion of their presentation.We adjourn between 8.30-9.00pm although one week out of every four, Board members stay on for an additional Board meeting.
WHAT IF I MISS A MEETING?
A unique aspect of Rotary is the opportunity to join another club meeting in another town or country if they miss their own club meeting due to business or holidays. Rotarians are welcome to join another club meeting anywhere in the world and learn how another club operates. It is called a "makeup" and it's reported at their own club meeting on return.
