Datin Gillian Lee, District 331 Chairman, Inner Wheel Year 2020-2021

 

Dear ladies of Inner Wheel District 331, welcome to a brand new Inner Wheel year!

The year 2020 started with great hopes and promises for many of us. However, the entire world was caught off-guard by the unprecedented health crisis, and in what seems like the blink of an eye, our lives and businesses across many sectors, were suddenly in disarray.

The coming months will bring many changes to our lives… the way we work, socialise, communicate and even travel. Almost every aspect of our lives will be a little different from what it was pre Covid-19 days. Changes may be inevitable and not always controllable, but what can be controlled is how we manage, react to and work through the change process. So, let us not be afraid to embrace change… be it changes to our lives and the way we do things, or even new innovations and digital technology. Do not only look to the past or present, or you will miss the future.

Although the initial panic that accompanied the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic has abated to some extent, there are still many uncertainties as to what the future months will bring. As such, this is perhaps an opportune time for us to take a step back, take stock of where we are…as a District, and be the change that we want to see!  We will not embark on anything very ambitious for our District this coming year. Instead, your District Executive Committee will be looking at ways towards enhancing our knowledge on Inner Wheel and the visibility of Inner Wheel in our communities. The plan that we have in store for you this year includes:

  1.    Bringing our District’s Learning Programme your way. Our dedicated team of Training coordinators have been hard at work tweaking and developing the Inner Wheel training modules for your needs. We hope that you will all participate fully in this exciting Programme that will soon be made available to you, because without knowledge and without keeping ourselves abreast of new developments in Inner Wheel, we are at best like a boat on dry land… rooted to the spot with nowhere to go.

  2.    Promoting the Inner Wheel brand with the aim of increasing our membership. Ideas are currently being discussed at District level, and with innovative input from your end, I have no doubts that together, we can make an impact on the local community! Only when Inner Wheel becomes a household name and when friends and strangers happily want to be part of Inner Wheel…. can we then say that we have achieved our goal.

On that note, may I set a challenge for each club in District 331 to achieve at least a 10 percent nett growth in membership for this Inner Wheel year!

I hope that these small steps will be the first of many, as we come together to LEAD THE CHANGE for a better tomorrow and a District we can all be proud of!

Thank You. 💗

 

Yours in Inner Wheel friendship,
Gillian Lee
