DISTRICT 5750 NEWS

 
Membership:
 
It’s not a secret that membership is a big push for Rotary. We’ve seen a trending decline in the United States over the years and multiple theories and excuses to go with it. I could pile on with the frustrations of these trends and throw in a few excuses of my own, but I’d rather present you with some tools and steps to enhance your Rotary experience with people you enjoy and present an opportunity for you to share what has meant so much to you and your life experience.
 
Simply, I want us to reflect on “Why?” we joined Rotary. For me, it was community. That included my friends, my interests and my love for where I live. Rotary checked all the boxes and when it came to investing my time and money, there wasn’t a better return on my investment. Why is that important? Well, when we think about who we surround ourselves with, it’s typically people we have common interests with and people we enjoy doing life together with. Who better to have join us a Rotary? It doesn’t have to be forced. Rotary has put in place a framework that does the heavy lifting for you. We’re not looking to bat a thousand, but let’s take a moment and think about who we surround ourselves with and who might benefit from an hour of good vibes and positivity for the week. The theme this year is “Rotary Changes Lives”, and I’m here to submit that additionally, “Rotary Enhances Lives”!
 

Rotary shouldn’t be a secret, let's instead make it contagious!
