The District 1070 Compliance Officer for the Rotary year of 2018/19 is Mrs Louise Willis from the Rotary Club of Kettering Tresham.

Louise was a Founder Member of the Club and has assisted or held club office in membership, treasury, secretary and was the 2014/5 President, gaining a Silver District citation with the Club. Louise has also worked on the District Communications team for the last three years.  Louise is an enthusiastic Rotarian and once met not easily forgotten!  Her career has fundamentally been in business management across a range of businesses, with a continual need to stay abreast of current legislation and gain the relevant qualifications.

Prior to becoming disabled in 2014, Louise embraced a successful career alongside her passion as a Rotarian.  Her approach to matters of compliance is always of a high standard and she is always equally as willing to help you review and improve the good practice across the 1070 District. Being disabled has allowed Louise to have a unique perspective to all matters of equality and diversity an area she admits she has become more passionate to improve, for all disabled people. She faces her own challenged everyday and has a wicked sense of humour alongside a passion for all things PINK!

Louise believes ” there is never a stupid question” and would rather you asked for help before there is a need for intervention or worse still a situation that then requires rectification after the event. As Rotarians who perform wonderful act of kindness and service to our communities, it is important to review and if necessary update some of our practices. Louise is keen to assist in helping to review  risk assessments, for projects that have been in existence for some time as well as new projects that come on board.

Compliance covers many areas in many different situations in particular her role covers the following

(1) RIBI General Data Protection Policy Notice.
(2) RIBI Equality and Diversity Policy (linked with the RIBI Dignity Policy.
(3) RIBI Health and Safety Policy Statement.
(4) RIBI Safeguarding – Children.
(5) RIBI Safeguarding –Vulnerable Adults Policy.

She always happy to talk through any issue you require my help with.  She can be used as a sounding board , a source of reference , or even to signpost you to another place to gain the information you need. Nearly every situation is different and as Rotarians we are not exempt from the Law.

You can contact her by email on – or via the 1070 membership book under Kettering Tresham Rotary Club. In her absence please contact Moria Penny – via the 1070 membership book under St Ives Rotary Club or the District Secretary.
