Kia ora Members
Last week we heard from  Jamie Sinclair, CEO Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei Trust.  Jamie has been guiding the trust in the Post-settlement era, to move the role of the trust from supporting the members of Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei on a transactional basis to a long term strategy to support significant issues such as housing, education, and health.  Not many organisations we hear from have such a dispersed group of stakeholders, and  with over 5,000 members in the tribe scattered around New Zealand and across the globe. The Trust is responsible for the long term growth and preservation of the Trust assets, that has a 50 year horizon. We heard about the property plans for the Trust down on their significant property holdings which are a balance of commercial investment properties and land to house their people on. It was very clear that the trust is planning for a long term future.
Today we have the District Governor Gary Langford as our speaker who will share his insights into Rotary's role in 2019. Following on from Ingrid Waugh our previous District Governor, Gary has a similar inclusive leadership style, and will give us those insights into the ways Rotary is planning for the future.  Gary held many senior positions in his professional career and was the ex-CEO for Eagle Technology for 15 years from 2002-17. Gary is a recognised business leader, having headed up one of New Zealand's premier software and implementation companies for 15 years, but also had a long career with Carter Holt Harvey.

RCA LinkedIn Update
We have decided to increase the Club's presence on LinkedIn by creating a public LinkedIn page that can be accessed by anyone - rather than the "closed" LinkedIn Group we currently have, which can only be accessed by invitation.  We will therefore be closing the old Group down.  For those of you in the old LinkedIn Group, we hope you will take the time to transfer to our new page.  If you are not currently connected to the Club through LinkedIn, now is your opportunity to do so.  Simply click on the link below and then click the follow button. We hope you will enjoy the fresher look and content of our new page -

Trees for Survival Planting Day
This year’s Trees for Survival Planting Day will be on Friday 14 June (rain date Friday 28 June) and you are invited to help to be part of the planting and to make a difference.  This year’s planting is at Camp Adair in Hunua and our Club supports Auckland Girls’ Grammar with this project.  Students grow seedlings at their school and plant the young trees on ‘at risk’ land, where they will help prevent erosion, improve water quality, increase biodiversity, renew a natural resource and increase the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.  This programme was established in 1991 and now has over 150 schools participating throughout New Zealand and has resulted in the involvement of more than 70,000 children and more than one million trees being planted.  If you would like to be part of this year’s planting programme, then please contact Jacqui in the office.
