Southbank Millennial Board Opportunity

Southbank Millennium Board Opportunity

Born in the 80’s & 90’s – Want to really make a difference in your community?

Rotary Club of Southbank are looking to recruit people who were born in the 80’s and 90’s to join a new millennial board of 9-15 people to develop two initiatives that will benefit the community of Southbank under the leadership and support of member James Piplios who is an alumni of the Williamson group. James is experienced in training people to become board members and directors.

As a companion board to our own club board, this opportunity will not only inspire the next generation of leaders in our community, but will also benefit the club to explore new ideas / create leadership opportunities within our community and complement and support membership in our own club.

Philip Archer, a member of Southbank Rotary, through his Public Image role with the Rotary Australia Zone Leadership Team, is a key player in changing the way Rotarians think and is helping to create lasting change across Rotary internationally and is instrumental in leading the initiative. The initiative of piloting millennial boards in Rotary follows a trend throughout business to develop the next generation of leaders this ensuring continuity of leadership and service.

Southbank Rotary is very fortunate to have a diverse range of members of all ages, business skills and leadership styles and inspires men and women of many background to develop leadership skills and support their local and international communities and to solve pressing problems that face their communities.

In association with Rotary Australia we are also working towards a vision where all clubs, districts and ancillary Rotary organisations throughout Australia are able to share a single unified website and communication portal in order to ensure that we all speak with one voice and own brand.

We aim to do this by:

  1. Creating one common website for all of Rotary Australia Foundation, Rotary Australia World Community Service, Australian Rotary Health, Rotary Down Under and Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children (ROMAC) that brings all the good news from across Australia under one common banner.
  2. Introducing a Community Engagement App (Blong Pro) which will allow clubs to connect with club members and their communities through an app on their Smartphone.
  3. Challenge 6 other clubs to trial a millennium board with the view to expanding the initiative throughout the other 1100 other clubs in Australia.
