Presidents ReportOur second year since chartering was a very challenging one, highlighting that thetransition from new club to established club is still very much underway.For most of the year we had multiple vacancies on the board, with no Club Service Directorafter the first few weeks of the new year a position that was never filled - and twoPresident Elects pulling out, resulting in no President Elect being trained at the PresidentElects Training Seminar.Despite these difficulties, we had some remarkable achievements that the club can be veryproud of: the Magnifying Microscope project has gained tremendous momentum, growing across the state and garnering enquiries from outside of Western Australia we chartered the very first community-based Interact club in Western Australia, a strong club with may fine young leaders in it we received a Presidential Citation with Distinction, signifying that we completed projects across the full spectrum of Avenues of Service we received the Best Metropolitan Club Bulletin award for the 2 nd year in a row, recognising the hours of effort that goes into the bulletin every single week we received the Inaugural Best Indigenous Service award jointly with the Rotary Club of Geraldton Greenough for the Indigenous Group Study Exchange team from Wiluma to Fiji that finally happened after years of coordination.Id like to thank the club for theirsupport over the past year, and wishBryant Stokes all the best in his yearahead.Yours in Rotary,Simone Carot CollinsPresident 2010-112. Club Service The Club Service committee did notfunction after the first couple of months of 2010-11, when the role of Club Service DirectorPage 3 of 19 4. was vacated and no replacement could be found.Six members of our club participate in 4 Rotary Global Networking Groups: Environment Fellowship of Rotarians Simone Carot Collins (webmaster), Di Collins Rotarians on the Internet Marcos Carot Collins Rotarians on Social Networks Fellowship - Simone Carot Collins (charter Chair), Marcos Carot Collins, Claire Forsdyke, Daniel Forsdyke Disaster Relief Rotary Action Group Ken Collins2.1 MeetingsThe meeting time and day remained constant throughout 2010-11.The possibility of changing venues to a new community centre being built was explored,but until it is completed, cannot be considered further. One downside to remaining atBethesda Hospital is the lack of suitable space for babysitting, which has resulted in theloss of some members.2.1.1 Weekly ProgramA range of high quality speakers on Rotary programs and projects, potential projects,general interest and ones pertaining to the Rotary Calendar (e.g. Rotaract for WorldRotaract Week) have been organised since the inception of the club. Special thanks to BillHassell for organising the bulk of our speakers this year.2.1.2 Special Dinner MeetingsDinner meetings were arranged for special occasions: DG Ian Huttons Official Visit in October 2010. Christmas / Second Birthday celebration at the Nedlands Golf Course on 16 th December 2010, with Max Kay as our guest speaker. Changeover Dinner on 30th June 2011 we hosted a joint meeting while the team from Normandy gave their presentation. Pizzas and drinks were organised as a casual meal after the meeting.2.1.3 Committee MeetingsSetting aside the 3rd meeting of the month for committee meetings did not work, withextremely low attendances rendering committees inoperable. Alternatives such aselectronic meetings were tried, with equally little success.A new approach to organising projects and reporting back to directors and the club as awhole, with a monthly club forum, was agreed on towards the end of the Rotary year butdiscarded before it was given time to see if it would work.2.1.4 Board MeetingsSince, like committee meetings, a regular date for board meetings yielded a low turn out,alternative methods were tried such as an online chat and meeting via email, as well asPage 4 of 19 5. trying different days and times, straight after the regular club meeting and on the weekend.2.1.5 Club AssembliesSeveral Club Assemblies were held on a
