MEMBERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

 

August is Rotary’s Membership and New Club Development Month, when we celebrate our members and the work they do with clubs around the world.

Attracting new members is most likely a goal for you in the year ahead. Remember that first impressions matter. Join Jennifer Jones, past RI vice president, and an exciting panel of guest speakers for an English-language webinar called “First Impressions Matter: The Membership Experience.” The participants will discuss best practices and resources for clubs looking to improve their first impressions on potential and new members.

At the end of the webinar, you should be able to:

  • Highlight, in interactions with prospective and new members, ways that Rotary is different from other service organizations
  • Take a fresh approach to creating a meaningful club experience for prospective and new members

Register for First Impressions Matter: The Membership Experience, on Thursday, 31 August, 12:30 Chicago time (UTC-5).

The webinar will be recorded and available on our Vimeo page in the first week of September.

Stay tuned for other exciting, informative events and resources for August.

WHAT IS ROTARY? ONE MEMBER'S PERPSECTIVE

By Julie Aubry, Regional Membership Officer at Rotary International

What is Rotary?

“I have no idea.”

“That’s a type of phone, right?”

“Oh, I’ve heard of Rotary. I don’t know what they do though.”

The statements above aren’t uncommon when we ask non-members if they know what Rotary is. We know there’s a lack of awareness in our communities; some parts of the world have been seeing a decline in membership. How can we expect clubs to grow if people don’t know who we are?
