At the IIW Executive level, I will work collaboratively to maintain good governance and continue to encourage all members to share this 'secret' of Inner Wheel, by honouring its past and in the expectation of forging its strong dynamic future. Members remain the key to our success. The biggest challenge we face is to determine how Inner Wheel will thrive towards, and into, its second century.

Information Technology is becoming a massive global enabler for Inner Wheel, a perfect platform to share the vibrancy and diversity of individual members' and Clubs' achievements. It is a primary and ongoing information giver. I will encourage the continued evaluation and evolution of IT, including the implementation of developing technology and those methods of communication that will facilitate the advancement of Inner Wheel, by introducing more efficient and effective communication around the world, to raise Inner Wheel's profile in its local and wider communities, potentially attracting a larger membership base.

I will endeavour to establish better initiatives towards alleviating the isolation of Non Districted Clubs. ND Clubs must feel a greater sense of inclusion, to increase motivation and participate in the wider global sphere of IW.

It is also important to regularly examine the efficacy of IIW's United Nations participation, to increase its impact, and make its representations more meaningful to the overall membership.

I will encourage IIW to begin establishing foundations towards ensuring that 2024 becomes Inner Wheel's landmark centenary, as befits our outstanding organization
