As an organization, Rotary International is embracing change and is willing to do things differently. The historic first female president of Rotary International and the organization’s work in diversity, equity and inclusion, among others, are prime examples. When you do things differently, it leads to change, and change can lead to hope. Our Rotary International President is Gordon R. McInally. The theme for the year is Create Hope in the World. The RI President urges us to make Membership the lifeblood of our organization. He encourages us to use the flexibility of technology to establish new style clubs that would appeal to a different demographic. He urges us to engage our members and implement Best Practices in retention, especially mentoring.
To my dear fellow Rotarians,

As we approach the end of another Rotary year, I wanted to take a moment to express gratitude to each and every one of you for your own unique way of expressing Rotary’s vision:  “Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”  I can’t wait to see what’s ahead for Rotary in Halifax!
At the Changeover event on Friday evening, I gave out a few special awards. 
Today marks the 110th anniversary of the Rotary Club of Halifax Harbour, and 110 years of Rotary and #ServiceAboveSelf in our region. Formed on May 5th, 1913, our club has a long and proud history of advancing the mission and values of Rotary in the region. Today marks the start of a year of celebrations and recognition of the Rotarians who have served their community through Rotary. Check back often and follow us on social media for news, events, and fun facts about our history.

Stella is a physiotherapist, and she has been involved in Rotary for 27 years.

“Rotary is great a way to give back internationally and locally. Professionally, it was a big help. It gave me opportunities to travel. It’s given me leadership skills. I learned how to run meetings, how to present at meetings. I presented at conferences. I got this confidence from Rotary.

We use QuestionPro
Apart from the free survey software, we also have access to QuestionPro's free survey templates. We've found many of them useful and powerful to collect insights from various stakeholders of our organization.
We acknowledge that our club is in Mi'kma'ki, the traditional and ancestral territory of the Mi'kmaq people. We recognize the peace and friendship treaties signed between the British Crown and the Mi'kmaq from 1760 to 1769. We are all treaty people and we have rights and responsibilities as Mi'kmaq and settlers alike.
