The new Rotary Coordinator Program was approved by the Rotary International Board of Directors during their November 2009 Meeting in Evanston, Illinois. It will replace the current Membership Development program.
The Rotary Coordinator’s purpose is to provide enhanced information and assistance from Rotary International to the Rotary clubs and districts. They are to serve as trainers, motivators, coaches, counselors and resource persons for the club and district leaders in their assigned regions. They are also to be available for assistance at Rotary Institutes, Governor-Elect Training Seminars, and other zone level meetings.
It is envisioned that the Rotary Coordinator will have a broad role in efforts to increase club membership. They will be trained in all aspects of Rotary International Programs and will promote best practices for the strengthening of clubs and districts. The new RCs will attend a Rotary Coordinator Institute in Chicago, Illinois during March 2009 to complete the training for this position.
