How Can Rotarians Help Recruit and Retain Engaged Members?
First of all, begin to ask yourself not only why you joined Rotary, but why you have continued to remain active. Perhaps it was fellowship, community service, networking or some other reason. If any of these items attracted you, then they will probably create interest in Rotary from others as well.
Check out this video to help inspire you!

What is Club Visioning?
Recently, almost 30 volunteers from District 7930 received training in a very successful program, Club Visioning.
The Visioning process is designed to help Rotary Clubs create their own vision and to discover the steps necessary to achieve that shared vision. The result is unique to each Club because this is not a vision decided by District 7930 or by Rotary International. The result is a vision designed and endorsed by the Club’s own members.
This new initiative will be formally introduced during a session at the District Assembly which a few members of your Club's leadership team should attend!

District Governor's Message for March 2014
Congratulations to our wonderful team of Club Presidents! After many years of steady decline in district membership, the district has grown by 59 members vs. a goal of 48. This is concrete evidence that our district has positive energy and is engaging Rotarians. But, we still have 3 ½ months left in our Rotary year and I know that many clubs are just starting to pursue home-based business owners in their area. Let’s all finish strong and position our clubs and the district for even greater growth in the year ahead.
Speaking of next year, our Presidents-elect and Assistant Governors have now completed the Northeast President-elect Training Seminar (PETS). And after being with the new leadership team for 3 days, I am truly confident that they are well-trained and excited to assume their leadership roles on July 1st. DGE Peter Simonsen clearly has a great team and the district will be in good hands.
