What Would Jim Recommend for President Elect Reading?

I was asked by an incoming district governor which POSTS on Retention Central would I recommend to incoming club presidents. First, it is a compliment that anyone would ask such a question. Second, my ego wanted to shout, “Read them all.” However, I did cast my ego aside, which was not easy, and listed the five which, according to stats, have had the most visitors. If any of you are so inclined, consider passing this list to all incoming presidents-elect and district committee leaders:

#1. Rotary in North America, Part IV

#2. Inactive Rotarians, A Hidden Resource

#3. The Silent Rotary Killer

#4. The Only True Measure of an Effective Club is its Ability to Attract and Retain Members

#5. Why Wait to Improve Membership Retention

It’s no surprise that most involve attracting and engaging members.
