After an outstanding performance at our 26th installation Dinner

At the beginning of every Roatry year our club conducts a one day Leadership Training for our Interact and Rotaract Clubs.

Kuching: The Rotary Club of Kuching Central outgoing president Frankie Ong will install Juergen Ertl as the 26th president at a leading hotel here on July 2.

Second Finance Minister, and Minister of Environment and Public Health Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh will witness the installation.

Also present will be the club?s assistant governor Dr Leonard Ng.

Juergen will also install his board of directors immediately after his installation for the one-year term

?Reach Within to Embrace Humanity? is the Rotary International?s theme for 2011 to 2012.

In line with this theme, Juergen has outlined his plans for the year to continue the club?s signature project in ?Avoidable Blindness?, which includes eye screening, cataract and pterygium operations, and to continue to play a role in identifying the low income group for enrollment in ?myKasih? programme.

Also included in the plans are the building of the learning centre in Kuching for pre-primary and lower primary school students, mainly for those who are slow learners and have difficulties catching up with their studies in school, and to provide clean water to an orphanage housing 450children located in a remote village of Nanga Pinoh in West Kalimantan.

A press statement yesterday revealed that the Rotary Club of Kuching Central would be admitting corporate members effective today.

This is a new category of membership. In the past, Rotary International and Rotary Club worldwide did not have provisions to admit corporate members.

With this new category of membership, corporations are able to appoint their staff as nominees who will work with the club to jointly offer services to the local community as part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives.
