A Graphic: The Interconnecting Relationships of Rotary


During the Zone 34 Membership Event in Evanston IL earlier this month, the Zone 34 Membership Team, with the guidance of RRIMC Jim Henry worked on the question of "Who is Rotary's customer?"

From that search they developed a graphic representation of the Interconnecting Relationships of Rotary. It is quite interesting and, I am sure, will be the start point for much more conversation!

Districts- GROW Your Club Membership!

District 7620 Governor, Paul Frey shares the following information about the GROW Membership Program used successfully in his district, District 7620.

"The GROW membership training booklet was developed by Darrell Nevin, Membership Chair for District 7620, for use in training club membership committee members and Rotarians in general. His analysis and techniques have proven successful when adopted by clubs of all sizes. He has conducted dozens of entertaining half-day training seminars in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia utilizing the concepts outlined in this GROW booklet. He also has run seminars for smaller, struggling Rotary clubs entitled “Extreme Makeover – Small Club Edition."
