Rotary Club of Kalgoorlie OCTOBER is VOCATIONAL Month Club Bulletin - Issue 13

CONTENTS  From President Esther  Vocational

Monday 28 October 2013

From president ESTHER ... The Bulletin is out late this week and it's my fault. Yes, I was late getting this column in. Thursday was a very stressful and busy day so the column completely slipped my mind. It seems like a long time ago now, but thank you to all members for the mammoth effort you put into the Battle of the Bands Quiz Night. We had a debrief at the meeting last week and all agreed it was a great night. The feedback from attendees was that it was a great night.

Our recipients from the event will be Kalgoorlie PCYC and Kathleen Day Playgroup locally and Rotary Programs. The cheques will be presented to representatives from those groups on Monday 11 November. We certainly have a busy few weeks coming up. Starting with our Vocational meeting at the Kalgoorlie Racecourse Monday night. The meeting will be at our usual time and at the usual cost. As I mentioned last week we will be given a tour of the Museum on site whilst we are there. Then on Sunday 3 November we are off to KBULG again to assist them with taking cuttings and propagating those cuttings for their nursery. Boulder and Hannans Clubs have also been invited to join us for the morning. The morning will finish with a Sausage Sizzle. Our last visit was a great morning with the opportunity for some great fellowship.

President Esther

The following week will be our AGM to accept the Audited Statements of the Club so they can then be submitted as part of the requirement for our Charitable Collections licence. Treasurer Billy will give an overview of the Audit on the

night and the report will be available for members to read through. On the night we will have some Club Melbourne Cup Sweeps for members. We will also have an opportunity to be a part of the Melbourne Cup Sweeps that Tower Hotel is running. On Monday 11 November, as I mentioned earlier, we will be presenting cheque to recipients of funds from the Quiz Night. That night we will also, hopefully, be inducting two new members into the Club. Their nominations are posted in the Bulletin this week. Also on the night we will be having a debrief for Streets of Gold. At the Board meeting this week we realised we had not done a proper debrief. It will be a very busy meeting. On 18 November Anne Skinner will be telling us all about her Interplast Observer experience. I know I am very much looking forward to her presentation. The media has been covering the devastating bushfires that are in NSW. At the Board meeting this week it was decided that any monies raised from the Sausage Sizzle at Harvey Norman this Saturday would be given to Rotary Approved appeals. So hopefully, we have plenty of community members coming along to partake of our wonderful sausages! We have also been letting the Community know that we will be accepting monetary donations on the day as well. It has been asked that money be given to be distributed and not goods. That way recipients can then purchase goods at local businesses and thus assist them to get back on their feet. Enjoy the rest of your week while you Engage Rotary, Change Lives.

105th Rotary International Convention 1-4 June 2014 : Sydney www.riconvention.org


Advancing high ethical standards in the workplace As leaders in their businesses and professions, Rotarians can advance high ethical standards by setting a positive example among employees, associates, and the community in general. All types of work-related interaction offer an opportunity to encourage ethical behaviour. Here are a few specific ways that Rotarians can integrate ethics into their daily work life: • Discuss and emphasize honesty, accountability, fairness, integrity, and respect when hiring and training employees. • Praise and encourage the exemplary behaviour of your colleagues. • Demonstrate your personal commitment to high ethical standards in relations with customers, vendors, and business associates, treating each business interaction with care and consideration.

Rotary’s commitment to corporate social responsibility Corporate social responsibility is a company’s commitment toward the community and environment in which it operates. The World Business Council for Sustainable Development defines it as “the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large.” According to a 2012 article on social ethics, there are currently three defining trends in corporate social responsibility: 1. Giving aligned with core business expertise, in which corporations target their philanthropy to issues related to what they do as a company 2. Employee engagement through company-sponsored volunteer programs, which raise morale and attract employees who share the company’s social values 3. The communication of a company’s social values and commitments through social media or other methods
