There is an adage: ‘where society goes, organisations must follow to stay relevant’. Society has undergone many transformations, in particular, digital transformation. What does this mean for Rotary, and how should our club adapt to stay relevant?

The CSIRO and Data61 predict that  Australia could have an incredible productivity boost to increase its economy by $315 billion by 2028 from digital technologies, which will improve our living standards over time. RC Glenferrie is one of 5,000 Rotary clubs globally that has applied ClubRunner, a digital technology platform, to assist our digital transformation.

ClubRunner enables our members to accelerate Rotary processes, ensure service projects can be found on digital platforms, and leverage social media to spread our impact. Dear Glenferrie Rotarians, in order to develop more skills on ClubRunner join me for the Webinar on how to use ClubRunner to make fun of your Rotary life.
We are at the doorstep of RICON23. Did you know non-registrants to the RICON23 convention can enjoy a FREE 3-day pass to the Rotary House of Friendship?

Dear Glenferrie Rotarians, if you have never been to a Rotary House of Friendship, please look at House of Friendship at #rotary19 in Hamburg.
