Rotary Community Leader Position Objective

A key objective of the Regionalisation Pilot Project is to create more significant opportunities for Rotary and Rotaract clubs to better work together to positively impact the community and create larger-scale partnerships with government, large corporations, other NGOs, and stakeholders across Zone 8.

The regional model includes a new way of grouping clubs, with each group referred to as a ‘Rotary Community Group’. These Communities will be based on what clubs have in common, such as geography, identity, interest, or language. Clubs will collaborate to create their Communities and elect their own Rotary Community Leader.
 
The Rotary Community Leader (RCL) will lead Club engagement on behalf of the Regional Council, supporting Clubs in fulfilling their purpose of providing service to others and promoting peace and goodwill in local, regional, and international communities.

With no formal authority, the RCL will inspire and mentor Clubs in their Rotary Community Group to expand their community impact, increase the satisfaction of their members, and grow their Clubs. The RCL will coach club leaders and facilitate access to advice and guidance from Rotary International, the Regional Council, Portfolio Leads, and the Rotary Specialist Network.
 
To help build the RCL cohort that will support you in your role, the online Orientation Sessions and the RCL Development Seminars will be held in four separate cohorts. You have been allocated to one of these cohorts according to your district.

Key Responsibilities

 
  1. Facilitate collaboration amongst Clubs in the Rotary Community Group (RCG), and across other RCGs as appropriate, to set and achieve the RCG’s goals.
  2. Inspire and mentor Clubs within the RCG. The RCL will use their experience and skills to guide the Clubs to achieve their goals, including their contribution to the Community Group’s goals. Community impact (including through bigger scale partnerships), public image, member experience, and membership growth (through Club growth and new Clubs) are priorities.
  3. Provide advice and guidance when Clubs seek it, and connect Clubs to the most appropriate specialists as required in the Regional Council Portfolios, Rotary Specialist Network, Rotary International, or external partners.
  4. Liaise collaboratively with the relevant District Governor/s to enable a smooth transition to the Regionalisation model being piloted, with a focus on unified support for Clubs and members.
  5. Work collaboratively with other Rotary Community Leaders to ensure effective leadership cross the Oceania Region. Be aware of the issues and challenges likely to be faced by Rotary across Zone 8, including the many cultural and linguistic communities in the Zone 8 Region.
  6. Develop suggestions for the Rotary Communities Nominee on the Regional Council on any support to Clubs, process improvements or knowledge enhancement opportunities for Club members.
  7. Contribute as required to the monitoring and evaluation of the Regionalisation Pilot, with respect to the RCGs and RCLs.
