For those who may not have heard, RCSE President Cameron will be heading to Apia, Samoa next week, to take on the exciting new role of Westpac Samoa General Manager. While this is great for Samoa and for the Rotary Club of Apia, Suva East will surely feel Cameron’s absence, as his leadership has ushered a new energy and enthusiasm to club events and activities. Although he has not,. in this short time, achieved all the goals he and the board had set in the strategic vision last July, Cameron noted that the club has successfully reached 25% of its fundraising goal for the year, engaged new membership, and significantly improved average weekly attendance, which has recently hit a 13-14 member average.
“The Club is more energized now, but I have all of you to thank for that. That’s not me, that’s you,” said Cameron.
Cameron also outlined the plan for the club’s future. Michelle Chand will remain president elect for the 2014-2015 year and for the time being, Past President Parveen will step in and guide the club’s functions for the remainder of the year. Cameron officially handed over his duties today, passing the chain over to Parveen. “It is with a heavy heart that I say farewell,” he said, “but if anyone is in Apia, please visit.”
Parveen thanked Cameron for his service and leadership on behalf of RC Suva East members, and all the club wished him well on his next steps.
