As your Old Rossallian Management Committee, we have been busy behind the scenes working to build on the OR network in a bid to drive up numbers coming back to visit School, as well as joining Rossallian events elsewhere around the Globe. After a brief ‘recruitment drive’, we now are proud to announce the first of the Old Rossallian Ambassadors.
The role of an Old Rossallian Ambassador is key to the future growth and continuity of the Rossallian Club. This is something that has been discussed for many years, and now with the enthusiastic support and energy of Lisa Squire, we have been able to make it happen. We set out looking for Decade and Year Ambassadors, and so far, the response has been excellent. The candidates ranged from recent leavers in 2023, all the way back to 1955! Along this process, we had some very interesting conversations, and it is clear there is a real appetite to drive the attendance to OR events and the annual dinners, as well as branch events and International meals. We also found that this would be an ideal opportunity to re-introduce our more seniors ORs that have lost touch with one another.
The aim of the OR Ambassadors is to utilise current networks and spread the word regarding events via a variety of channels. As this is an ongoing process, and positions will be reviewed on a bi-annual basis, we are always looking for people to help us fill the vacant decade roles, as well as all the Year Ambassador positions. These roles are not overly taxing, and will only take up as much of your time as you feel it deserves. So, with all this in mind, if you feel you would like to give something back to Rossall, please do not hesitate to get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
