Rotary Clubs of Canberra, Canberra Citizen of the Year 2010

Rotary Conference at the Albert Hall, Canberra, March 1929
The Rotary Clubs of Canberra work with business, professional and community leaders across the ACT to provide services to the community in accordance with their motto, service above self. The Canberra community has benefitted greatly from Rotary’s longstanding commitment to improving the lives of those who do not share the same advantages or opportunities as most.
As an organisation and as individuals, Rotary members demonstrate a strong sense of sharing and community and a commitment to making the world a better place.
The first Canberra Rotary Club was established in 1929 and there are now 17 local clubs, collectively providing support to the Canberra community.

Local Rotary projects include the Rotary Youth Exchange Program, the operation of several local canteens and the Belconnen Trash and Treasure Market.
Further information about Rotary in the ACT is available on our website, as is a history of the Canberra Citizen of the Year Award and a full list of awardees.
The 40th consecutive Canberra Citizen of the Year will be announced by the Chief Minister during Canberra Day Celebrations in March 2016.
