Speaker: Tina Wang

communications and team management.

News from the Board

is not the only, but a very important ingredient of Rotarian life.
Members attend weekly luncheons because they enjoy the friendship of
fellow Rotarians and the camaraderie. We have started to meet in the
evening once a month, usually on the last Tuesday, in order to give
those who are busy during the day a chance to join. Evening meetings are
also open to partners, friends and, of course, prospective members, who
are interested in sharing the spirit of Rotary. If you have a special
dinner venue in mind which you deem suitable for evening meetings please
let me know. Your suggestions of exciting speakers who would add to the
joy of meetings will be more than welcomed by Viktor, chair of our
club’s speakers committee.
