DISTRICT CHAIRMAN: PHYLLIS CHARTER email: districtchairman@innerwheeldistrict10.co.uk
The Inner Wheel year has turned full circle and here we are at the beginning of a new year, looking forward to the future. We have all just been through some most unusual times and it gives us an opportunity to look at the whole concept of how we wish our organisation to go forward for the future. We discovered new and exciting ways of holding virtual Club Meetings via zoom, but hopefully we will now have no restrictions so enabling our meetings to return to face to face; where we can enjoy the friendship and fun that we all know as Inner Wheel. My first position on D10 Executive was in 1999 as 2nd Vice Chairman, followed by District Chairman in 2001-2 and then as Member of Council in 2004/07. I then held the Office of Association Treasurer for two years 2008/10, Association Vice President in 2010/11 and Association President in 2011/12. At IIW level, I was elected Board Director 2015/16 followed by Constitution Chairman in 2016/18; before being elected as IIW Vice President in 2018/19 and IIW President for 2019-20. Unfortunately my year as IIW President was cut short as when the world was placed in lockdown with the covid-19 pandemic. However, it was still a year to remember resulting in memories for life and so many new friends around the world. I have just finished a year as District Secretary for 2021-22 and now 2022-23 being recycled as your District Chairman. I look forward to taking up this position again and am seeing how times have changed in the last 21 years – email replacing snail mail with modern technology – is it progress or not ? I thank all club and district officers for taking on positions. I know some clubs are having difficulties in finding officers and this is one item that I wish to discuss when I visit your clubs – we have to look to the future – we have to change and be prepared to - share – adopt - adapt - improve. We lead busy lives – but Inner Wheel is needed today more than ever in the past. I look forward to meeting you all in the near future and please feel free to chat and discuss any ideas or problems that you may have – we have to help one another. We are a Team and a problem shared is a problem halved. So let us work together for a brighter and more secure future for the benefit of Inner Wheel.
