Gary Goldsmith: The Rotary Regionalisation Project

The Rotary regionalisation project in Zone 8 including District 9800 is gradually unfolding, and the resources available to us next year will differ from those in previous years.

Central Melbourne has been designated as part of Community Group 9800-1 and Gary has been appointed by the Regional Council as lead for this group.

Gary will outline more about the Community Group, his role as Community Group Lead and how he hopes to help us and other clubs achieve our club goals.

Gary commenced practising Law in 1983. He undertook his Articles with the predecessor of Goldsmiths Lawyers and has remained with the firm ever since. Over this period, he has built a substantial level of expertise across a wide range of legal areas. Gary runs and supervises all the firm’s litigation. He has earned high repute in successfully resolving clients’ disputes and problems both commercially and personally.

Gary has extensive experience in all Courts throughout Victoria and frequently represents clients. With the assistance of the Victorian Bar of approximately 2,500 barristers, many of whom Gary has a strong professional relationship, enables consistent execution of success in achieving clients’ goals.

Outside of work hours, Gary has served on numerous community boards and committees. He has led community projects across a wide range of needs. He is a past president of the Rotary Club of Camberwell and has an ongoing membership of over 25 years.

In his spare time, he plays golf, keeps fit and enjoys overseas travel.
