Message from IWNZ President/National Representative, Dot Anderson-Lee

Our International President for this year is Bina Vyas from India and her theme of “Lead The Change” is very appropriate as we navigate our way through many changes brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Many clubs have been embracing meeting online via Zoom or Google Meet including your National Governing Body and this has been a marvellous way of keeping in touch during trying times.

Inner Wheel New Zealand has been proceeding well with our National Strategy, we have applied for regional grants to continue our campaign to connect with women who would like to make a difference in their communities whilst building friendships.  A lot of work has been done on our Membership and Marketing Toolkits to assist our members with promoting  our organization, so stay tuned for updates on the National Strategy as I am sure you will find ideas that can assist you all in some way.

I would like to encourage all members to share their enthusiasm for Inner Wheel with people you meet and let them know how they too can connect to our wonderful organization.

 My life has changed in many ways recently too,  not only becoming your National President & Representative but also moving from the bottom to the top of the South Island.  However, being now in the middle of the country,  I have the opportunity of either going North or South which must be an advantage.


I look forward to meeting as many members as possible during my tenure and wish all members and potential members a wonderful, productive and healthy year ahead.


Dot Anderson-Lee
