Tuesday 7th August 2018 saw five members of the Rotary Club of Royal Hua Hin visit Stamford International University to talk to students about the benefits of Rotary and of joining Rotaractors.  President Brian Anderson was joined by Immediate Past President Birger Rexed, President Elect Napa Keawtem, Secretary Martin Harrison and Rotarian Benjamas Uamsa-Ard, who also works at SIU and is responsible for co-ordinating the Rotaractors on behalf of the club.

P Brian spoke about Rotary International and gave an overview of what RI strives to achieve, he talked about membership internationally and of the good it has done in the world since its foundation in 1905 in Chicago.
IPP Birger covered a more local perspective and specifically about the RCRHH, its membership, the diversity of its members and the fact whilst business is taken seriously, the idea is also to have fun and fellowship.
PE Napa gave a detailed powerpoint presentation on the projects RCRHH have been involved in during the last 12 months.  CLICK HERE TO SEE THE PROJECTS.  She talked of the involvement of members and the fact we make a difference to our local community.
SIU Principal Pierre Bourgoin visited the presentation, and spoke to the students about integrity and leadership.  He said becoming a Rotaractor would help the students in the future when prospective employers were looking for committed and rounded people to work for them.
Martin spoke about the importance of Public Image and Public Relations, covering how we act in our private lives as well as publicly and the need to spread the word of the good news and things we do.  Facebook was a great example, most of us like to tell everyone what we are doing.  PI is an extension of this. 
Finally Benjamas talked of the importance of Rotaractors, how they can be a force for change in the country and ran through some of the events they had been involved with during the past 12 months.
Following the formalities everyone had the chance to mingle and indulge in a goodly portion of pizza…or three!
