Article by RC PDG John Prendergast from Rotary on the Move
 
RC PDG Tim Moore and I, and our team of Assistant Rotary Coordinators (ARCs), are available and keen to support Districts across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands with their efforts to support and strengthen their Clubs, and strengthen membership. The roles of Rotary Coordinator (RC) and ARC are perhaps not as well understood as we would like, and as a consequence they run the risk of being a somewhat underutilised resource – so this Rotary year we will be focusing on making sure that District leaders know and understand the purpose of the RCs and ARCs, and we will also be focusing on making sure that we actually provide value to District leaders. Rotary International provides us with a fairly modest budget, but sufficient that we are available, and funded, to participate in District events such as PETS and Assemblies. The RCs and ARCs are all Past District Governors who - perhaps contrary to popular belief about PDGs! - don’t know everything, but do have a strong bank of experience that means we can provide practical and useful support to District leaders. So please don’t hesitate to call on us during the coming year.
