Report on the ROHR Manicaland Provincial Meeting in Mutare on 6th September 2015

We have completed the Manicaland meeting. It went well with representatives from all 7 districts, namely: Makoni, Mutare, Chipinge, Buhera, Nyanga, Chimanimani and Mutasa.

The meeting started with an introduction to ROHR going through our code of conduct, emphasising a membership drive through cards to be available soon. We also touched on partnerships, discipline, loyalty and sharing a common vision. The members suggested a $1 membership fee for provincial and district leadership and a further $1 per quarter to show commitment. $1 a year for ordinary members was also proposed. Work plans which must be done urgently were developed with timelines and major activities, such as district sensitisation meetings with stakeholders, membership drive, partnerships and networking.

The following posts have been filled to form the provincial executive: Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Secretary, Information & Publicity Secretary, Legal Advisor, 2 Youth Representatives and 3 Women’s Representatives.
