Join experts from our Rotary Zone to learn about growing membership, Rotary public image, and how the two are linked!
Zone Public Image Coordinator Lisa Herring and Zone Membership Coordinator Kelly Atkinson will be sharing their expertise as we dive into how we can tell our Rotary stories to the public and attract and retain members. Any interested Rotarian is welcome, and the seminar will be particularly useful to incoming Club Presidents, Membership Chairs, and Public Image/Relations Chairs.
We'll begin with a joint session highlighting how Rotary and club public image affects growing our membership. Then, we'll split up with one group focusing on Public Image and the other on Membership. Lunch will be provided.
When: January 28, 2017 9am-3pm
Where: OCU School of Law, 800 N. Harvey OKC, OK

I joined Rotary as an engineer. There are almost as many classifications in the profession of engineering as there are in Rotary, but I happen to be a mechanical engineer. A mechanical engineer calculates the heating and cooling loads for a new building, makes sure the right lights are in the right places, and plans the plumbing so your hot water pipe doesn’t end in a drinking fountain.
