A new Brisbane Technology Park (BTP) Satellite Rotary Club of Carindale was founded on January 27 when the club held its first foundation luncheon meeting.
“This will be the start of a great Rotary Club for the Brisbane Technology Park. There will be regular lunch meetings on Wednesdays with very interesting guest speakers from a range of industries. The aim of the club is to do service for the community, network, and encourage social interaction,” President of the Rotary Club of Carindale, Barry Rosnick said.
Seven office bearers were elected at the first meeting and officially inducted on the 18th of February, including BTP occupants Vice President of e3K Engineering, Dr. Ray Hope; General Manager of Pacific Data Systems, Paul Gapes; and CEO of Qponics Limited, Dr. Graeme Barnett. Since then, Dr Paul Massarotto, a chemical and patroleum engineering consultant and University of Queensland lecturer, has been inducted as the inaugural president. The club now has a total of 11 members, but is still open to new inductees from the BTP community.
