Heading for the Exits?

Some amazing statistics in the Southeast US. RRIMC Jim Henry's research into RI records indicates that Rotary clubs in Zone 34 districts over the last five years have inducted 22,467 new members, but overall are down 1,124 members.  

The inevitable conclusion- that clubs do not have a problem attracting new members – the problem is keeping them. This is just further proof that clubs and districts should undergo self-evaluation and make systemic changes. Clubs are not meeting their members’ needs, and bringing new members into ineffective clubs will only aggravate the problem.
