To improve communication and member influence, instead of a speaker, next week we will trial workshopping the plans of a number of our directorates. Our directorates are Community, Youth, International, Club Service and Finance.  The model is that club members join a table of a directorate that interests them. The Director will then share their plans and issues with the members that have joined them, then as a group, ideas and/or solutions are brainstormed, prioritised to say to the best two or three, then conclusions presented to the whole club.
Approximate timing is
5 mins - Director shares their plans for the next twelve months and any issues they are dealing with.
10  mins -  Brainstorm solutions.
5 mins - Consolidate results
Each Director will then present to the club for about 5 minutes.
Next week we will be covering Community,  Youth and maybe  one more.
