Irena Brichta and Stuart Amesbury from our club will be traveling to San Diego to take part as Training Leaders in the Rotary International Assembly which is Rotary's annual training meeting for incoming district governors. Irena and Stuart were trainers at the assembly last year and have the honour of having been asked back for a second year to be discussion leaders and help District Governors elect (including our own DGE, Julius Tomka (RC Banska Bystrica) share their insights, experience and knowledge with the other incoming district governors from around the world. Whilst San Diego may sound enticing, the event is hard work for the trainers who start at 6.30am to set up the workshop rooms, and do not finish until 8pm in a tightly packed programme of lectures and workshops. “Stuart and I are really looking forward to meeting the incoming DGs and their partners” said Irena, “One can really see the power of Rotary through the representation of leaders from all continents”.
A five day training program for the trainers precedes the International Assembly where the trainers familiarise themselves with the newest concepts and ideas emanating from Rotary and have an opportunity to practice the teaching sessions prior to the arrival of over 530 incoming district governors.
