Llandudno Rotary - any members?
« on: November 21, 2017, 10:16:10 PM »
I am considering joining Rotary and wondered if there are any members on the forum. I am keen to donate some of my time to helping the local community and to help to get to know people as a newcomer. Have had a good read through the local Rotary website and was surprised at how active the group is and to see they meet weekly. I would love to be able to commit fully but weekly meetings are going to be pretty difficult and I wondered what the typical time commitment is?

Cheers,
Simon

Rotary is a pretty good organisation for community help, but does insist - as you say - on weekly meetings.  The thinking behind that is the idea of friendship; meeting and eating together on a regular basis has been found to improve bonds between members and Rotary is all about altruistic teamwork . You'll also need a sponsor, but that can be arranged if you contact the secretary of the club.

Thanks, Ian, they are pretty insistent on weekly attendance? I travel with my job and would miss at least one meeting a month. I intend going to a meeting in the new year so we will see what they have to say, I cant be unique in this respect. I certainly agree with their reasoning for weekly meetings.

As an alternative, you may wish to consider joining the Lions Club of Llandudno, who are also a well-respected organisation and carry out excellent work within our community.

At first glance, it looks as if they tend to only meet monthly.

If it was only one meeting a month you were missing, I suspect they would be happy to extend that latitude.

Thanks Bri, I will have a look at them too. Apex was quite an active volunteer organisation in Australia but I am not sure if that is an oz thing only.

mondie, I believe the Maelgwn Male Voice Choir are also looking for new members.
