Do you know about the Cadre? One of our best kept secrets.

The Rotary Foundation Cadre of Technical Advisers is a group of volunteer Rotarians who provide technical expertise and advice to Rotarians planning and carrying out Rotary grant projects around the world. Cadre members review, monitor, and evaluate projects and ensure grant funds are being used properly. This past Rotary year was a busy one for the Cadre program. Cadre members completed more assignments than ever while also developing the new long-term plan. They collaborated on Rotary initiatives including participating in Rotary’s grant model evaluation, visiting Rotary Peace Centres, and reviewing the Rotary-USAID Partnership and WASH in Schools Target Challenge projects.

2018-19 key numbers
• 363 Cadre assignments
• 223 site visits
• 140 other reviews
• $21.9 million in Foundation awards evaluated (of $57.8 million in total project funding)

Are you sure that your events are legal?

I know that it is easy to think that the events we run are fine but are you completely happy that it complies with current legal requirements and that it is covered by our Rotary Insurance cover? I am pleased to announce that Kevin Mack who is the Rotary in Great Britain & Ireland Compliance Co-ordinator has agreed to speak and run a workshop at our next Forum on 30 November. It will give us a chance to update our knowledge and hopefully reassure us that everything is indeed fine.

Honolulu Convention.

If anybody who is going to the convention but has yet to book accommodation, there are still 16 rooms available in the Ala Moana hotel. The ITHF are contracted to pay for these rooms even if not used.

Correction—World Peace Conference 2020.
