Highlights from Rotary Tasmania


Australian Rotary Health 

Australian Rotary Health (ARH) is now one of the largest independent health research organisations in Australia and one of the most worthwhile Rotary projects Clubs can support

Be involved in ARH Week from 3rd – 7th October. During this week we hope all Clubs can plan a fundraising activity of their choice, large or small, and make a contribution to ARH as well as help raise its profile in the District

The sixth annual ARH Hat Day is on 7th October.  This is a fun way to make an ‘annual giving’.

Appeal for Tasmanian Flood Victims still available
Club and their members are urged to make contributions as well as to recommend the appeal to their friends and family members.  The plan is to use money to help individuals in need .Clubs are now asked to nominate suitable projects

Spending time abroad as a Rotary Exchange Student is a great opportunity for students to experience a new culture, a new language, to be an ambassador for Rotary and Tasmania and to build lifelong friendships.


The YEP program is an International exchange for young people between the ages of 15 – 18. The exchange is for a 12 month period during which time the student is hosted by 3-4 families.

Building Future Leaders

The mission of The Rotary Leadership Institute is to provide an educational opportunity for Rotarians identified as potential leaders by their club presidents. Each club president is asked to nominate club members as potential club leaders, not necessarily future presidents.

Rotary needs a constant influx of leaders as club officers, since they change every year. It is difficult at the club level to learn enough about the exciting world of Rotary and it is also important to remember that leadership skills in volunteer organisations are often different from business leadership skills.

The Rotary Leadership Institute can help with both.


  • more about the what/where/why of Rotary
  • how to select service projects
  • how to work with volunteers
  • what it takes to lead a club


If your members care about the Club’s future, they will want the best leaders possible. The Rotary Leadership Institute is an outstanding opportunity for each club to improve the Rotary knowledge of its key people and to be exposed to new ideas of leadership. The exchange of ideas with other Rotarians alone makes the program extremely worthwhile.

First session is  28 August   More details here
