Your next role in Rotary awaits!
Dear Rotary and Rotaract members,
Applications are now open for two exciting new roles being introduced to Zone 8: the Rotary Specialist and Regional Council Portfolio Committee Member.
Read on to find out which role is the best fit for you – or consider applying for both!
What is a Rotary Specialist?
The Rotary Specialist role is a new way you can use your skills to help clubs reach their goals and make a difference.
Each Rotary Specialist will be an expert in a particular field who will provide guidance to clubs across the Zone, either in person or virtually, in their specific area of expertise.
When clubs ask for help, Specialists will support them by providing expert advice, and directing them to useful resources and other experts as required.
Clubs will be able to easily find and request assistance from Specialists through a searchable database.
There may be numerous specialists in the same subject area to cover the geography of Zone 8.

What is a Regional Council Portfolio Committee Member?
Each Portfolio Committee Member will work with a specific Portfolio Lead on the Regional Council, helping develop Zone-wide strategies, best practices and initiatives to strengthen Rotary in our region and increase our impact.
Committee Members will not assist clubs directly with their day-to-day operations, focusing on the bigger picture of how Rotary and Rotaract can achieve their goals across the Zone. They will work with clubs in select circumstances, such as in relation to Zone-wide projects.
You can apply to be a Member of the following Portfolios:
Each Portfolio requires different skills and expertise. Visit the Creating Tomorrow website to find out if you’re a good fit for one or more of these Portfolios.

The webinar will be held on Saturday 10 February 2pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT), and a recording of the session will be made available on the Creating Tomorrow website afterwards.
Applications for both roles close on Thursday 29 February 5pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT).
