Paul Bendix has taken over as the president of the Rotary Club of Shetland for the next year.
Following a series of Zoom meetings, Mr Bendix took over the reins from departing president David Anderson.
Mr Bendix said he had two objectives for the next 12 months – a “duty of care” to his fellow Rotarians, some of whom may be shielding or in the vulnerable category during the current pandemic, and to “make the place a better place”.
Departing president Mr Anderson said perhaps the “enduring legacy” of his presidential year would be the group embracing technology to meet virtually.
“We recently had a meeting with an Australian Rotary Club using videoconferencing technology – something we probably would not have done without Covid-19.”
He added he hoped they would continue to use technology to widen their membership.
