District 6900 (GA, USA) Membership Chair Mary Chapman has it right!
Watch RI's newest promotional video online. Use online resources to promote the four minute overview of Rotary included on the This Is Rotary DVD. Start off by adding it to your club's or district's Web site or blog, then consider posting it to your Facebook or Linkedin profile, or even tweet about it. Continue promoting the video through an e-mail to all Rotarians in your club or district, and consider posting it on a local community service blog or discussion board. Have another idea? Send your tip to email@example.com.
