Next Monday is an important meeting in our Rotary calendar as we host our District Governor Vineeta Nand.  DG Vineeta’s home base is Fiji and she is prioritising Club visits in the Auckland region over the next 2 weeks.  It is really important to have a strong attendance at this meeting and I ask you to join me in showing your support.  In addition, one of the traditions I valued was the 5 minute speaker as it gives us an opportunity to learn more from our members and visitors.  So next week will be the first of many to come! 


“Her passion for community service and outreach led her to join Rotary in 2004. Fast forward to 2023, and she is now our District Governor for District 9920. District Governor Vineeta recalls, “Rotary’s motto of Service Above Self resonated with me and still holds very true to this day.”

She adds, “Getting to this key leadership role hasn’t been without its challenges but, shadowing me throughout has been my late husband and my family.” DG Vineeta attributes much support to her parents, who in her words, “instilled discipline” and her late husband Nainendra, who encouraged and inspired her; and her cast of friends – stoic in all their support.
