Leeds University Vice Chancellor becomes Honorary Member of Club

We are delighted to announce that on 26 January 2021 Professor Simone Buitendijk was inducted as an Honorary member of the Club. Member, Fred Archenhold spoke as her proposer and Joint President Keith Crowther led the ceremony. Our members were joined on Zoom by several Rotary guests from the area and heard from the Vice Chancellor that she had been a Rotarian when she was working at Leiden University in The Netherlands. She spoke briefly about herself and her vision for the University of Leeds. Andrew Bateman welcomed her on behalf of our Rotary District and the induction ended with the Rotary Toast. We look forward to welcoming Prof Buitendijk to a meeting in person when conditions allow.
