PresIvan3I am honoured to have been invited to act as the 105th President of the Rotary Club of Belfast for the incoming year. The Rotary Club of Belfast was founded in 1911 and has been serving members and supporting deserving causes ever since.

In recent years we have attracted an ever increasing number of younger members into our Club and in my 2016/17 year as President this will continue to be the case, centred around a wide ranging and varied programme of events to ensure the enjoyment of all our members.

We will be organising a number of international, local and social projects throughout the year, with an emphasis on making a difference to the lives of the people we set out to help and to improve their chances of contributing positively to their society.

I extend a welcome to all at our Monday meetings and if, after reviewing our aims and activities, you would consider joining Rotary, please do not hesitate to contact us here.
