Seattle Rotary Online is a significant marketing opportunity that is available to organizations that wish to help co-sponsor it. Intended as a library where you can pull a speaker’s presentation off the shelf, Seattle Rotary Online is available to companies or other organizations that wish broader awareness within the club or community.
Sponsorships are available for as little as $500. Please contact Seattle 4 Rotarian, David Endicott by email or at 206-409-3275.
