About Rotary Means Business
Rotary District 7390 of South Central PA, Rotary Means Business (RMB) is committed to promoting business networking among all clubs in South Central PA. The District 7390 RMB Governing Board with its Eastern Tier (greater Lancaster area), Northern Tier (greater Harrisburg area), and Southern Tier (greater Gettysburg, Hanover, York) area teams will take care of promoting all networking events, working with clubs to help organize the events, providing RSVP services through the district website's RMB link, handling finances, paying all club expenses with the support of sponsors found by the clubs and/or through event attendee payments.  Hosting clubs pick the venue, date near the middle of the month, find sponsors if possible and caterers, and welcome everyone at events before turning the meeting over to the Steering Committee representatives.  The RMB Steering Committee or the hosting club can provide wine and beer depending on the circumstances if the venue allows it.  Cash bars are recommended as a way of lowering event RSVP costs.

The RMB idea is simple yet powerful. Provide a structured framework that all clubs can buy into that includes mentoring, training, advertising/marketing through weekly inputs to the district's Rotary Reporter e-newsletter that reaches all district Rotarians on Club Runner, emails to club presidents asking them to promote the event via announcements, fliers on tables (downloaded from the Tier's Pics & Docs Page on the RMB link), Rotary Means Business District 7390 Facebook and LinkedIn postings, mass emails to all Tier RMBers and at least once to all district RMBers through Constant Contact. All of this is designed to facilitate bringing District 7390 Rotarians back to Rotary's roots in business networking, strengthening club and district Vocational Service lanes, developing new and younger members, increasing business opportunities for Rotarians over time, enhancing member retention, and adding good fellowship opportunities.

We would like to thank Mr. Rob Wood, Vocational Service Chair of Rotary District 5150 and driving force behind getting RMB reenergized in the San Francisco Bay Area, and San Francisco Peninsula RMB for their mentoring and model respectively upon which much of our District 7390 website and effort is patterned.  Please use the following link to learn more about RMB in District 5150 www.sfpeninsularmb.com.
