The Dr Ken Collins’ Address has been an annual Rotary International (RI)
event in Western Australia for the past eleven years.
The purpose of the Address has always been to provide
a venue for International speakers to update Western Australian Rotarians
and their partners about our Rotary charity – The Rotary Foundation
and to give insights into the future of the Foundation and Rotary in general.
There has been a tradition of having very high profile
International Rotarians as keynote speakers for each
of the previous Dr Ken Collins’ Addresses.
The speaker for the 2009 Address improves on that tradition.
This year the keynote speaker will be Rotary International President John Kenny.
The support speaker will be the Hon. Justice Robert Nicholson,
retired Federal Court Judge and former Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholar.
The venue selected for this year’s Address is the Golden Nugget Room, Gloucester Park.
Please promote this most prestigious event with your Club members.
Please bear in mind that the Address is open to Rotarians
and their guests/partners in the three WA Districts, so early bookings are advised.
For any further information about the Address, please contact Past District Governor Eli Quartermaine – contact details are below.
Your Club is very welcome to make a “Club” booking,
but it is really important the names of the people attending are provided.
Further information will be forthcoming re electronic payment however
