|São Paulo Convention Dates Changed|
The dates were changed because the original opening day (Sunday, 7 June) coincided with one of the city’s most popular parades. The new start date will dramatically reduce traffic congestion and make it easier for Rotary members to attend the opening plenary sessions. It will also make it convenient to attend our very own Rotary Carnival, a Host Organization Committee event, on Saturday evening.
Check riconvention.org regularly for dates, deadlines, and registration and housing details. Find information about Host Organization Committee events at www.rotary2015saopaulo.org.br

|New Clubs permitted in China|
This is indeed big news and something that has been lobbied for many years. It is now 13 years since two clubs were authorised as provisional clubs, after both had operated for several years as unofficial fellowship groups.
It is fully eight years since both clubs were chartered but we were previously restricted from opening any new clubs (other than satellites – permitted under the pilot that Shanghai is participating in and now under the new standard club constitution). Now, however the roadblock is removed and we may launch new clubs, following a standard Rotary process with just a couple of additions.

|Introducing the Club Visioning Program to District 9685|
Supporting “Service Above Self”, the Club Visioning process helps to transform the collective energy and talents into synergies that enable the Club to then move with intention in the same direction.
Club Vision Facilitation helps a Rotary Club design its own vision, and to set out the steps necessary to achieve that vision. That is, it is a vision designed and agreed by the Club members. The process will help to improve communication and to ensure continuity & consistency in its leadership & programming so as to set the stage for future progress.
Please contact the District 9685 Vision Facilitation Chair - David Mylan (Terrigal) on 0411 878 854 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
