Past President of the Rotary Club of Orillia, and District 7010 Membership Representative, Marilyn Hanson addressed Rotary today about the importance of membership recruitment and retention.

Marilyn reviewed a very detailed booklet from the District 7010 Membership Committee called "Getting & Keeping Good Rotarians". She explained how the book comes with a CD of various resources all designed to assist clubs in Recruitment, Mentoring, Education, Involement, Fellowship and Recognition.

Marilyn also displayed a slide presentation detailing the contents of the booklet and some demographic examples of the makeup of the Rotary Club of Orillia.

She explained the importance of always keeping an eye open for potential members through such avenues as guest speakers, recipients of Rotary programs which she called Alumni.

The goal of our club this year is a net increase of 10% in members which traslates into 1.6 new members. Anybody want to fill the .6 part of this equation?
