Hello to all Rotarians,
In 2019 we will be celebrating 30 years of “Women in Rotary “.
This is a great opportunity to highlight women in your Clubs and Districts who have gone above and beyond the call of Service above Self. We are wanting to know those really special women and to thank them for being part of our Rotary family.
Why ?
Because Rotarian women make great role models and it will show the public that women have been in Rotary for 30 years. It will demonstrate that women have high profiles within Rotary and that we come from all walks of life.  We already know that there are many women looking for ways to volunteer and we want Rotary to be the organisation they choose.
What do we need ?
We are looking for a great photograph, head & shoulders shot, of these wonderful women !We would need to know more about her so we can create a short story.
1.      A high resolution photo
2.      How long in Rotary and the club & district noted
3.      Why did she join and what keeps her in Rotary?
4.      What is her current role in Rotary ?
5.      What has been the best Rotary highlight / project for her ?
6.      Her profession, work area, skills and talents
7.      Family and / or children etc
8.      Interests
9.      Something that this person that not many people know ?
What will we do with this information ?
If the person agrees it would be put onto our rotaryoceania .zone website and shared on our rotaryoceania Facebook page.
We want to begin with the first person at the beginning of February 2019 and hope to have so many women to highlight that we have enough to showcase up to 2 per week.
So get those cameras on your phones clicking, your members thinking, then send it to;
