Rotary Response to COVID-19
RCW Open for Business in the Era of COVID-19
The Rotary Club of Wellington has swiftly moved to virtual meetings, with input from many club members, making it a relatively smooth process. There is information on how to join the virtual meetings here.
President of Rotary Club of Wellington Denise Church notes that over the last few days, she has been talking with many RCW folk about next steps. She is encouraged and heartened by the many offers of (physically distanced!!) contributions and support. There is much we can achieve as a club over this time.
The Board will meet virtually on the evening of Thursday 26 March to discuss and agree a well defined “COVID ERA” operational plan. This is likely to cover all major aspects of how to sustain and adjust over the coming period.
In addition to our new live streamed meetings, one of the things already being implemented is a phone tree - where members call to check in with each other, reducing the feeling of isolation and just generally keeping spirits up. Jane McCann is managing this so please contact her if you would like to be involved.
