District 7390 News and Events

There is a homework assignment at the end of this article.
 
It's membership month for Rotary international.
 
Do you believe in Rotary?  I mean REALLY believe.
 
Is it a way to serve your community?  And the world?
 
Does your club have an awesome community service project?
 
What needs does your community have that your club can fill?
 
Do you enjoy the fellowship of your fellow club members? 
 
If you have positive answers for most of these questions, why not share it with your friends and work cohorts, and get them involved in your club?
 
It ain't someone else's responsibility, it is the responsibility of each of us, individually.
 
Homework assignment:  send me an email (DGJohn2015@aol.com). And tell me why you are a Rotarian.  Write "Why I am" in the subject block so I don't delete it.
 
My reason?  To eliminate Polio in the world.  Because I am one of the lucky survivors of Polio.
 
It is up to you.
 
DG John G. Kramb

Is your Rotary Club trying to fit together the many puzzle pieces forming your membership recruitment and retention? Do you have trouble attracting new members or get new members in place and then discover others are “missing”? If this seems far too familiar, sounds like you need to attend the District Membership Seminar on Wednesday, September 9 at the Radisson Hotel Harrisburg (1150 Camp Hill Bypass, Camp Hill, PA 17011). Arrive for registration and supper between 5:15 and 6:00 p.m. The Seminar will begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. and end by 9:00 p.m. The cost for the Seminar is $15 per person, pre-registration is required in order to plan for materials and food service
 
The District Membership Chair PDG Hector Ortiz (Harrisburg-Keystone) is putting together a program to help Clubs enhance their membership efforts.  The seminar will include:
  • Discussion and presentations on the challenges we face in membership recruitment and retention District-wide. Plus actual successes that other Clubs have had in retention and recruiting.
  • Break-Out sessions for specific assistance in developing a retention and recruitment plan, shining a bright light on what Rotary is, and becoming a beacon of light for Rotarians, prospective Rotarians, and your community.
  • A wrap-up session for assistance & understanding on how to implement a membership plan.
 
Meet with your fellow Rotarians as we learn, share, and create a customized action plan for your Club to use in the upcoming year to improve membership. We’ll give you some hints on how to make this happen at your Club level.
