RI President Kalyan Banerjee speaks on membership

In a video message sent to 2011-12 club presidents, RI President Kalyan Banerjee says it’s time for clubs to take an honest look at who they are and how they need to change in order to achieve a sustainable Rotary. He urges clubs to highlight Rotary’s relevance to young professionals and to take active measures to engage both new and existing members.
"...as we begin the tasks we have set for ourselves, I remind you all that part of our goal is also to leave Rotary better at the end of the year than it was at the beginning, which means bringing in new members and working to keep the ones we have. For that reason, I have asked the RI Membership Development & Retention Committee, chaired by Past RI Vice-President Monty Audenart, to develop a three-year membership plan that includes the following elements:
  • Recognition of varying regional opportunities and challenges
  • A focus on diversity to bring in more young professionals and women and expand the range of professional backgrounds in our clubs
  • Improved retention efforts in all regions
  • More appealing, inviting, and flexible clubs"
