Rotary Awareness Function: Cocktail Party 19 July 2005
To avoid putting guests on their back foot by calling it a ‘Prospective Members Night’, the Rotary Club of Ku-ring-gai took a different approach. Local businesses were invited to a Cocktail Party to “Celebrate 100 years of Rotary service to the community”. It was held at a different venue (Lifeline, Gordon) from the normal meeting venue and was not conducted as a rotary meeting. Invitations offered the opportunity to relax in the company of other local businessmen and women and to see a short presentation on projects and donations made in our community and overseas by their local rotary club.
(NOTE. About 20 local business people attended, mostly real estate agents. It resulted in about one new member.)

The Achievement workshop was conducted annually over a 3-day weekend from 1986 to 2001. Over 1,250 young employees with 'management potential' were nominated by some 250 companies to attend over that period. Participants came from as far as Brisbane, Perth and New Zealand.
