22 August 2011 — Membership Development

After you view/hear/read the program and this week’s features, please join the Discussion Group and post your comments by clicking on “Add a reply.” (This is also how our E-Club verifies attendance for Club Members and visiting Rotarians making up a meeting with us.)

Healthy Rotary Clubs grow, by bringing in fresh, new Rotarians with energy and ideas and enthusiasm, so we all have more hands on the projects we do to serve our community and the world.  This week’s program includes a message about the importance of membership development from Rotary International President Kalyan Banerjee, as well as other information that may give us all great ideas about how to find great new people to add to our team.

Rotary Minute from www.rotary.org: How Can Rotary Attract New Members?  Please note, the third and final speaker in this video is our wonderful friend Deepa Willingham, immediate Past District Governor of District 5240, just to the north of us, including Santa Barbara and the central coast.

Rotary Minute from www.rotary.org: Is Your Club Family Friendly?

EVERY FEW MONTHS, Rotary International sends out an e-mail Newsletter called Membership Minute.  Here is the Spring 2011 edition, worth a look for ideas.  And here is the July/August 2011 edition, which was released just last week–so new that RI hasn’t formatted it for the web yet!

ROTARY CLUB MEMBERS have important responsibilities as Rotarians, to keep their Club, Rotary, and the Foundation strong.  Read about this here.

And HERE ARE SOME RECENT TIPS from Rotary International, three ideas to grow a Club.

ONE OF THE BEST ACTIVITIES of a Rotarian is to invite someone to come work, play, and serve with us.  Here is Rotary International’s page about How To Propose A New Member.  (There are legalities involved, so it pays to do it right.  Once proposed, a prospective member is considered by the Rotary Club Board, and then if approved that prospect is proposed to the entire Club; if there are no objections…which would generate more discussion…the member is approved.)
