What is a Good Annual Retention Plus Growth Rate?

What is a good annual retention plus growth rate?  My response to that question is anything above 93.4%.  

Why?  Rotary International’s Strategic Plan calls for an 80% three year retention rate, which calculates out to be a 93.4% annual retention rate.  Anything over that percentage would be achieving the strategic plan objective.  

But it is possible to achieve or better that rate and not grow.  That’s not all bad, but it does not represent growth.  As a reminder, Districts 7020 and 7030, for the years 2005-2009, achieved retention plus growth rates of 102.38% and 95.3% respectively, the highest in Zone 34.

It is often very difficult to judge a new member purpose of joining his/ her Rotary club. Now we have scientific methods to analyze a person and select appropriate method to retain or let be loose.
