Eastern Shore District makes "Membership Matter"

The District 7630 Membership Seminar was held September 15, 2009 at the Maple Dale Country Club in Dover, Delaware. District 7630 is one of two districts recently added to Zone 33 by rezoning, and it is comprised of Rotary clubs in Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

According to Don Hackett, District 7630 Membership Chair and District Governor Elect, the seminar was well attended with over 50 Rotarians in district and club leadership in attendance. The theme for the half-day seminar was “Membership Matters”, and was reinforced during the sessions with “M&Ms” being handed out to participants. Governor Susan Giove welcomed Rotarians and guests and opened the seminar. DGN Roger Harrell also addressed the group.

RRIMC Bevin Wall was the featured presenter, encouraging participants through videos and interactive activities to use the RI Theme “The Future of Rotary is in Your Hands” to inspire and motivate Rotarians and prospective members. A brief slideshow highlighted the world, regional and district membership status and issues.

During the panel segment, Assistant Governors in the District used their expertise to lead discussions on such far ranging issues as building membership in dire financial times, non-traditional Rotary clubs, the formation of new clubs, membership resources, and a district-developed template for club membership development.

Toward the end of the session, planning was discussed by DGE Don Hackett, and break-out groups were formed by club size to discuss their Membership Strategic Plans.
