Welcome to Meeting No. 105 of the Rotary Club of Latitude 38

The dismal science of economics is not as firmly grounded in actual behavior as was once supposed. In "Predictably Irrational," Dan Ariely told us why.


August is Membership and New Club Development Month

President's Message

Hello everyone,


I hope you are all well and looking forward to Spring. There has been a relapse in the weather down south but hopefully this won't last too kong.


Could I suggest you go to the D9820 website this week and have a look around if you haven't already done so. There is some useful information and news on the site and you can login to the members' area. 


There is a club board on Monday evening 21 August 2017 at 7.30pm. If you would like to participate please send an email to the club email address:


I hope you all have a good week.




Deanne S.


This week's meeting material
  • A fresh approach to Rotary Membership - Give your members a meaningful Rotary experience by offering them opportunities to make a positive difference and connect with others. They’ll make valuable friendships and feel good about Rotary and the work we’re doing to make the world a better place.
  • Benefits of Volunteering - from Macquarie University.
  • Are we in control of our decisions? Behavioral economist Dan Ariely, the author of Predictably Irrational, uses classic visual illusions and his own counterintuitive (and sometimes shocking) research findings to show how we're not as rational as we think when we make decisions.
