VIC/TAS Training Institute 2019

Hello Rotaract Leaders!

We are very excited to host you for the upcoming VIC/TAS board-elect training on May 17th to 19th!

Important: If you can't access the building DO NOT call CityCYC - Please Call 0400197011 for access.

Access is open from 6-8 PM Friday Night (17th May).

This page covers logistics such as how to get here, our program and other important information.

To prepare and get the most out of your training we have a couple of activities we would like you to complete, as well as a reminder to pre-poll to make the most of your training on Saturday.

Club Assessment 

Please work together with those attending the board training to fill out this form before close of business on Wednesday May 15. It will help us with some of the sessions we are running and ensure you get the most out of your training. Only one form needs to be completed by each club.

Club Assessment Form VIA Character Strengths 

We would ask every person attending to please take 10 minutes to complete this free character strengths assessment. More will be discussed about this in one of your first sessions so it must be done before you arrive at training and please bring your results with you.

VIA Character Strengths Quiz Upcoming Federal Election

We would also encourage you to please attend a pre-polling booth to cast your vote in the federal election. We have a very full program and believe the lines to cast votes in central Melbourne will be long, meaning you could miss out on some of the training if you wait until May 18 to vote. Travelling is a valid excuse to pre-poll which many of you will be doing to attend the venue.

AEC: Find a Pre-Polling Booth

A 3 Minute Walk from Southern Cross Station, CityCYC is located at 538 Collins Street, Melbourne CBD. Please Note: The Venue has NO PARKING - We recommend catching Public Transport, or getting dropped off and picked up. Secure Parking nearby is 522 Flinders Lane.










As you're walking along Collins Street, you'll see the entry (Picture 1). Once there walk in the doors and find the elevator (Picture 2).
Once in, take the elevator to Level 2 (Picture 3) and walk out into the lobby where you'll see a registration desk with Rotaractors on it.
Let them know your name, grab your entry pass and find out where your room is. If you are a day visitor, or are entering after 8 pm / have any problems entering - please call Training Coordinator Ben Hill (0400197011). If Ben is not reachable, contact your outgoing or incoming District Rotaract Representative.

Please Note that there is NO VENUE PARKING.

We recommend catching Public Transport as their is Southern Cross Station within a 3 minute walk. Otherwise, we suggest getting dropped off and picked up as Secure Parking nearby is 522 Flinders Lane, and isn't cheap for a full weekend.

IMPORTANT: No Food/Drink Allowed in the Venue.
To adhere with venue policy, no participant can bring food or drink inside the venue under any circumstances, excluding water.
This venue has a strict No Nuts policy, and have schools coming through all year. We also have multiple participants that are anaphylactic - and so we want to ensure there are no issues with allergies and anaphylactic reactions to food and drink.

Everyone staying overnight will have an access fob each, so you are welcome to grab and eat/drink outside the building, or if you want to explore the city for something else too.

The accommodation area is secured and can only be accessed using the security access tags (fobs) allocated on arrival to the participants using accommodation. No other groups can access our accommodation area.

All bedding is supplied (sheets, pillow, pillowcase, doona and doona cover, towels).

Each guest room has its own ensuite/bathroom which includes a shower, toilet and vanity basin. Towels and a bathmat are provided. Toiletries and hair dryers are not supplied and need to be provided by guests as required. The ensuite/bathroom has an automatic 24-hour fresh air flow system. There are no manual fans. Some bathrooms also have a sensored light (no manual light switch) which turns on/off when you enter/exit the bathroom. Closing the bathroom door will ensure the light does not come on unnecessarily.

Air Conditioning
All guest rooms have a reverse-cycle air-conditioning unit. This can be manually controlled (mode, temperature, fan speed) for individual room comfort. All units will automatically switch off during the night.

Stripping Beds
At the end of your stay, please assist our housekeeping staff by stripping all used beds as per the instructions detailed on the back of each guest door. Green laundry bags are located in a container in your function room. All rooms should be left tidy with rubbish placed in bins provided. Please complete a final inspection of all of your accommodation area prior to departure, ensuring all personal belongings and equipment have been collected. Please notify a Training Leader and City CYC staff of any damage or missing items/property.
