■  Massage from Program Quality Director/教育担当ディレクターからのメッセージ

 We hold the last club officers training in Okinawa this weekend. As a new attempt of this year, we have a focus on “First-timers” (club officers elected for the first time) in the club officers training. In Resources sessions, we introduced various information on the Web.. We also held program briefing sessions for lecturers and set up opportunities to help the lecturers understand the contents of each session. In addition, we set up a session to explain the overall picture of Pathways, and we informed you of the introductory procedure of District 76. This Pathways session will be announced again at the online seminar on September 10th.


 This year we have scheduled online seminars at 7 am on the 2nd and 4 th Sunday.  The only seminar provided by the trainer TM Matthew Ownby this week was very popular and as many as 140 people participated. At fast, the limit contract of the district was up to 100, we reconsidered the contract quickly and expanded it up to 500. Online seminars are free programs provided by the District. If you have computer or smartphone, you can watch or view and even ask questions from anywhere. Also, each seminar is recorded and uploaded to District 76's site usually within one week.


 From now on I will take not only major themes but also minor themes to respond to various needs and convey information to many people. We are waiting for many members participating in seminars.


 第一回のクラブ役員研修会も残すところ今週末の沖縄での開催のみとなりました。今年の新しい試みとして、第一回のクラブ役員研修会の内容にFirst Timer(新しく役員になられた方)の歓迎やWeb上にある様々な情報を紹介するResourcesセッションなどを全体のプログラムに初めから組み込みました。また講師の方のためのプログラム説明会を開催し、各セッションの内容を講師のみなさんにより理解していただけるような機会を設けました。加えてPathwaysの全体像を説明するセッションを設け、ディストリク76での今後の導入計画をお知らせしました。このPathwaysのセッションは9月10日のオンラインセミナーで改めてお伝えします。
