R14 – Jean Lloyd
Quota International of Goulburn, New South Wales, Australia (District 31)
What are your qualifications for the position of Quota Regional Director?
Since joining Quota over 20 years ago I have served as Presient in two, two year terms, Treasurer and at present hold the position of Correspondence Secretary. At District level I was Governor for a 2 year term and at present hold the position of Lieutenant Governor. I have also held the position of District Secretary/Treasurer for a two year term. Our club has instigated Cops and Kids in the town following my constant nagging and we are serving our fifth school at present!
What are your goals for your specific region?
I see the position as a Communication Facilitator. This area is large and far flung. Melding into a happy and informed Area is a priority. District 31 has a history of melding so it is clear to me that it can be done extraordinarily successfully. We will continue Quota’s work and make a whole lot more new friends. I’m sure we’ll fit fun and fellowship in there too.
What do you do outside of Quota?
I am a returned, retired teacher who works three days a week with children who have learning difficulties. I love being with the children and enjoy being a part of a learning team. I am a Legatee with Legacy and have ten widows assigned to my care. I communicate with them and visit for important occasions such as birthdays, Mothers’ Day, Easter and Christmas as well as on a ‘pop in’ basis. They are free to ring and meet with me should they need a shoulder or an advocate. Transporting to medical and theraputic sessions are among such needs. I have been a judge in the Lions Youth of the Year for 12 years. Most rewarding and often challenging and have also judged in the Miss Show Girl Competition and Office Mananger of the Year Events. Pilates and Aqua Aerobics have become an important part of my weekly routine.
What else would you like to share with the members of your region?
Jean is keen for 14. I want to be your Area Director. I want to assist this new order flourish and to meet as many dedicated and like minded women as possible.
