He has held office as: Membership director, Club services director, Bulletin editor,  A counsellor in the student exchange programme , Chair of the speakers panel,  A Trustee of the Rotary Club of Wellington North Scholarship Trust and A Trustee of the club’s Charitable Trust.

In the Rotary year 2006-07 he was President.  During his term he supervised the legal incorporation of the club and the attendant legalization of the official charitable status of the club.

In August 2008 he received a Presidential Citation from the District Governor of 9940, namely Tony Fryer, for his services to the Rotary Club of Wellington North.

These days the Adrian works as part of a small team, quietly and efficiently setting up the room for our weekly Rotary meeting. This is a duty not widely recognised by many of us who arrive just prior to the start of the meeting.
