After 20 years secondary teaching and retraining in computers Tim went into business in information technology. His hobbies are computers, photography and 4 wheel driving. What a mix! His wife Jane is a relatively new Rotarian, who shares his Rotary interests. They have a son 37 – a mechanical engineer in the UK and daughter 34 in marketing and a recent first grandchild.
His Rotary life has spanned many opportunities, as a long term member of the Rotary Club of Berwick, president, an array of club and district responsibilities, Assistant Governor and then District Governor for 9820 in 2013-14. More recently he has represented District Governors on zone membership committees and helped train Governor Nominees and Elects. Locally he has been IT and membership chairs of his district. He especially enjoys working with clubs and districts on strengthening and growing membership as an Assistant Rotary Coordinator. He is a Board member of Rotary Down Under representing Victorian and Tasmanian districts.
This Rotary year has seen a new role as a Rotary Coordinator for 13 districts in Australia working closely with other Rotarians and Coordinators in our Zone and NZ. His role is to publicise and encourage all Districts and Clubs to promote and practice the objectives of Rotary international and our Zone. It is a role that he is really enjoying, particularly working with the many Rotarians that share his passion for growing Rotary, so we can achieve more in the local community and worldwide.
