Active Retirees : Active Retirees Feb-March 2012
Active RetireesTM | 7 The PSP Board is pleased to welcome three new directors for terms of three years commencing May 2012. The new directors, who will be formally announced in the next issue of Active Retirees, are Probus members who have been selected for their knowledge, expertise and commitment, and will undertake orientation and governance training. Rotary District Probus Chairs are well into planning for Probus Information Days in all districts, and Probus District Newsletters will be circulated to keep Probus clubs informed and to continue to build our Rotary partnerships. Training will be provided for RDPCs in May, and focus groups will also commence this year. For Probus clubs, preparation for your Annual General Meetings should be well in hand, along with programming for your club activities, interest groups and Probus Rendezvous. By 30 April, clubs should send Annual Returns, Capitation Fees, Active Retirees subscriptions, PSP Records and Directory update, and statistical information to PSP. These forms were sent to all clubs in December 2011, and copies may be downloaded from PSP website. Also, don't forget to continue your support and promotion of PSP T ravel Insurance for this year’s adventures. Clubs should also plan to attend local Probus Information Days. These days are very informative, especially to new committee members, so if you haven’t attended one, please make an effort to do so. Over the past two years we have seen a loss of members, but PSP is committed to our strategic planning to ensure the strength and future of our great organisation. We are working to arrest this downturn, reinvigorate our current membership and grow for our future. Probus membership generally falls into two age groups: 60-plus and 80-plus. We are working to make sure Probus is also relevant and attractive to younger retirees. Our marketing strategy, with the rebranding of our flagship publication and development of editorial content, will encourage the wider community, and baby boomers in particular, to experience Probus. I believe that the future of Probus is in all our hands; everything we do to administer Probus must encompass technology, new initiatives and new directions. For Probus to survive we all need to be proactive in the promotion and awareness of Probus. This is also relevant at a club level; everything you do as a Probus club and a Probus member must ensure the liveliness and health of your club. Bring new ideas and activities to your clubs, strengthen your membership and ensure your own future. Probus has a future – it’s in all of our hands. Ken Brand PSP Chairman vieW fRoM tHe cHAiR StudioCommercial PSP, RDPCs and individual clubs have all been busy preparing to make 2012 a year of great growth. The year ahead I believe that the future of Probus is in all our hands; everything we do to administer Probus must encompass technology, new initiatives and new directions.
