2017-2018 Policy and Goals
President : Wakako Miyamura
“Inspiring ourselves to reach our own potential”
“BE THE INSPIRATION” is the theme by RI President of 2018-19, Barry Rassin. The meaning of this Theme would be summarized as follows:- Since Rotary was founded 113 years ago, its role has continuously been in a state of evolution, forming a global network that connects globally through each club by the efforts of people who have the talent and the drive to change the world. Thus, Rotary’s service contributed to change the lives of families and communities across the world. It is important for us to put more emphasis on our public image, using social media to build our membership and attract the partners that can help us scale up our service so that Rotary’ s role is spread in the world much more and to help Rotarians of each club for better understanding of Rotary’s role in the world. The RI President said that we need to BE THE INSPIRATION for positive change to face today’s challenges, with courage, optimism, and creativity.
The meaning of “Be The Inspiration” sounds a bit hard to understand in Japanese. However, I understand that it means that Rotarian should make an effort to be a person with enthusiastic, motivated mind who would give influence to inspire other people and society to give enthusiasm, confidence and motivated feelings. To achieve it, I think it will be necessary for me to accumulate energy, encourage to perform both my own work and Rotary activities which would help stimulate other Rotary members.
As for policy and goals of Rotary Club of Tokyo Hiroo for this year, I would like to aim our Club to become a position to “inspire others” among Club Groups and Districts with a pride that Governor has been produced. In particular, first of all, would like to make an effort to increase Club Members, and then transmit information on our activities putting emphasis on public image using social media such as SNS, to get people to know the activities of the Club as much possible. And, among others, I would like to strive to create a place where all club members can do activities with willingness and pleasantly
Activities scheduled for this year are, Charity concert for polio eradication in November, 2018, District Assembly in Guam, held every ten years, in February, 2019, Rotary International Convention in June, 2019 in Hamburg. Preparations for commemorative event of the 20th anniversary of our club in the next year will begin.
We would like to work together with corporation of all of members for one year make these activities enjoyable and exciting.
