Congratulations on your election as gifted hands


Dear World Class Presidents,

Congratulations on your election as President of your club for the 2015-2016 Be a Gift to the World RI year. Indeed it is an exciting time to not just be a Rotaractor, but also a \president as this confers upon you, a golden opportunity to lead and galvanize your club towards effective community,  professional and leadership development not only within your immediate environment, but among your members.

My name is Chimezie Udechukwu, [PP, Amuwo Main], your Assistant District Rotaract Representative, ADRR for Lagos East, comprising 18 clubs in 4 zones [your club is among]. I am indeed very excited as this gives me another opportunity to learn, relearn and unlearn.

Learning is pivotal to success in life and as such every day, we put ourselves to knowing more, adding up and becoming better. As leaders you must devote yourselves to learning about Rotaract, its ideals, its objects; you must learn about your club, its members, their psychology and what works for each of them. This is how you become effective and successful.

Relearning provides a good opportunity for us to become even greater leaders and motivators. When you are humble to the point of wanting to know better, refreshing your memory, and restocking your knowledge reservoir so as to be able to be true gifts to your members and to the world.

When we unlearn, we give room for advancement. By so doing, we let go of myths, uncertainties, poorly processed information, harmful knowledge and other vices that impedes our personal development. When we let such go, we free up more space to take up more leaning and relearning experiences which helps in our journey of leadership and service.

Hence, I invite you again, on behalf of the DRR Incoming, Timothy Oluwaseun Bamgbose, to prepare to UNLEASH YOUR PASSION! Passion for service, leadership, mentoring, volunteering, and giving.  I am sure you already have copies of the District Handbook for the year. Please study it and use it as a guide to planning your year. Also, I have directed your respective Zonal Representatives to get in contact with you, please work with them for they possess the experience you need to succeed.
