Group Study Exchange (GSE) is a cultural and vocational exchange program for professional business men and women, aged between 25 and 40 years, and in the early years of their professional lives. Each exchange team is comprised of a Rotarian acting as the team leader and four specially selected team members.
This year we will be exchanging with District 6840 which serves southeast Louisiana, including New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. It is proposed that the incoming team will arrive on 21st February and depart on 22nd March and that the outgoing team from our District will depart for the United States at the same time as the team from District 6840 and return 4 weeks later.
11-12th April, 2015
As many Clubs in District 9800 already know there has been fantastic support in the last two years from Clubs undertaking a 'Rotarians At Work Day' in April. ln the last two years Rotarians and Friends of Rotary have pitched in to complete worthwhile community projects. Whether it was refurbishing a park Rotunda, painting a picket fence, gardening for pensioners, renovating a facility for the homeless, running a Multicultural Festival or removing graffiti, District 9800 Clubs made significant contributions to their local area.
This year in 2015, two days, Saturday April 11th and Sunday April 12th have been prescribed as 'Rotarians At Work Days' for doing good in the Community. Whist that is of course the prime aim, unashamedly we want to be visually observed working 'out and about'. So this is also a very important PR opportunity. Please put out signage at your project sites and wear your High Visibility Vests or Rotary Tops and Caps.
Recruitment is underway for the 2016 Rotary Peace Fellowship program. Applications close on the 15th May 2015 with your club and District selection processes are finalised by early June. Details are found on the flyer. Further information can be obtained from Rob Helme (0402299492) or Bob Fels (03-59892455) See if your club can identify a suitable candidate for this year to keep District 9800 number one in the world for successful recruitment.
