DG Message

Dear fellow Rotarians and Rotaractors,

“Imagine Rotary” − our theme this year, let’s put our heads together to make this world a better one for all; let’s dream big and leverage our connections and the power of Rotary to turn big dreams into reality.  

No doubt we are facing a fast-changing world in these couple years.  Instead of viewing this as an adversity, I see this as an advantage we are building for ourselves.  We have become so comfortable switching between online and on-site meetings as the situation calls for.  Staying flexible is the key to adapt and retool so as to fit into the new norms.  We need to rethink our service delivery model.  

Doing Things Differently - Empowerment of New Generation, New Club Models, Innovative Approach

Empowering the new generation is of paramount importance, it means giving them our ears to understand the challenges they are facing.

We will introduce Virtual Rotary Exchange (VRE) for our youth to connect to the world, develop international understanding and widen vocational learning experiences.   

Another aspect is adopting new club models and recruiting younger members.  Satellite Clubs, Corporate Club Membership, and Cause-based Clubs are areas to be further developed.  We shall exercise our imagination in our District and develop approaches that would make these new club models work.

We are taking important steps to adopt enhanced digital tools for member engagement. My vision is to refine the Registration Platform for all District events.  An interactive e-directory has been prepared for everyone. Simply update your personal profile with your photo, let Rotarians recognise you. This e-Directory provides for each member an e-Name Card which by scanning a QR code, you can save new contacts in your mobile phone. Please enjoy this instant access to enlarge your Rotary network through your smartphone, anytime, anywhere.

Our creativity and innovation shouldn’t stop here.  We have been innovative in our service delivery during the pandemic years.  We should continue to develop new ways of planning and delivering services that would suit the ever-changing world. Dream BIG, dare to be different, and put in our efforts to test and experiment – that’s what we in our District would excel in.

In Rotary, we serve to change lives.  Embracing change helps us to stay in touch with what’s going on around us.  We welcome further ideas on how we can create more innovative and impactful services. “You can't build an adaptable organization without adaptable people.” (Gary Hamel).  

With colossal imagination, the sequel to making a better world is simply beyond our imagination. Let the Rotarian spirit lives on!




在這數年間,我們毫無疑問面對著一個變化迅速的世界。我沒有將此視為逆境,反而我視之為可以建立我們優勢的契機。隨著不同的需要,我們從戰戰兢兢嘗試用Zoom, 到現在舉辦各種現場混合線上的會議已變得遊刃有餘。保持靈活性是適應和重組以配合新常態的關鍵。我們需要重新檢視現行的服務模式。

以不同的辦事方式 – 為新一代開創機會,新的扶輪社模式,創新手法



另一方面是採用新的扶輪社模式和招募年輕社員。衛星扶輪社 (Satellite Club)、企業扶輪社員 (Corporate Membership) 和 特定目標的扶輪社 (Cause based Club)有待進一步發展;在地區內發揮我們的想像力,制定可讓這些新的扶輪社模式發揮作用。


我們的創造力和創新不應止步於此。在新冠肺炎疫情期間,我們都以創新的思維推動服務; 疫情過後我們更應該繼續嘗試以不同模式規劃及推行服務,以配合這個在不斷變化中的世界。敢想敢做,敢於與眾不同,不斷嘗試 - 這就是地區賴以成功的要素。

在扶輪內,我們以服務改善人生。擁抱改變有助與周邊事物保持緊密聯繫。我們樂見具創新性和影響力的服務在區內推行。“沒有適應力強的成員,就無法建立一個適應力強的組織。“ (加里·哈梅爾)。
