Stand easy!

Stand Easy! is a command to soldiers standing at ease that they may relax further easy.

Doesn't quite fit the context of our meeting today but we - intentionally - do not have a speaker booked.  Nor is it a "Club Assembly".

Come prepared for fellowship while we stand easy for an hour!

Stand Easy?

Council is currently implementing a Smart City Program across the region which looks at ways we might be able to use technology to deliver services more efficiently and effectively. It also includes the plans for the technology for the new Maroochydore City Centre.

After one Rotary member from Kawana Waters came through the Smart Centre in Caloundra, they asked that I do a presentation at their next Rotary meeting as they found it so informative and interesting. This made me think that other Rotary clubs may also be interested in a visit and presentation. It is also a great way for me to hear ideas and comments from the community about Council's activity in this space.

Our breakfast meeting will be in the Smart Centre learning all about the technologies that have been and are being installed in Caloundra as part of the Smart City Program followed by a Q&A session.

As Caloundra is our testing lab for new technologies it has more tech installed currently than any other area of the coast. This visit follows on nicely from Mel Massina's talk about Smart21 as we are the Smart City team who implements the Smart City Program, completes the application and have been awarded the prestigious Smart21 award for 3 years running.

More information can be found at www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/smartcities.

For more than 110 years, Rotary members have been addressing challenges around the world. 
 
Grassroots at the core, Rotary links 1.2 million members to form an organization of international scope. It started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships, and give back to their communities.
 
Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of its members.
