January marks Rotary Awareness Month

Because January is Rotary Awareness Month, this is a great time to make sure your community knows who you are and what you do. Consider these tips:
  • Share your club's Web site or blog link through an electronic news release.
  • Host a question and answer press conference during one of your meetings, inviting local media.
  • Invite a friend or co-worker to a meeting.
  • Write a letter to the editor of your local paper about your club's community and international humanitarian efforts.
  • Coordinate a community service project with another local organization.
  • Purchase or download the RI publications This Is Rotary, What's Rotary? or Rotary Basics and distribute them in your community.
