When I first became a Rotarian, I did not fully understand the word "classification" as it related to membership and its significance for the club. But I had heard from several club members that the classification speeches were among some of their favorite meetings. A few weeks into my membership, a classification speech was given and I instantly understood what makes it so endearing.
I came to learn that a classification is a category of profession lent to a member upon joining and typically reflects that member's primary occupation and source of income. A classification speech is given by a member (typically early on) as an opportunity for others to learn more about their fellow Rotarian. And while the framework of the speech typically chronicles a cadence of career and family, it is usually embedded with interesting tidbits and a flavor of the speaker's personality, leaving members to say, "I never knew that about so-and-so!".  It too has become a cherished component of Rotary for me.
Rotary is rich in tradition and history and I am proud to learn how thoughtfully designed and deliberate these traditions are. In the interest of sharing more detail, I'm including a link to an article that provides the history behind the classification design and how to deliver a classification speech. Perhaps my biggest take-away from learning about the classification design is that its purpose is to cultivate a diverse club and foster a membership which consists of a cross-section of the community at large.  The very nature of which is intentioned to create an environment full of ideas, connections and interests to be shared for all.
This year's president of the Attleboro Rotary Club, Amanda Adams, invites the club to be more visible in the community. With a mantra of "be what others can see", she hopes that other service-minded individuals in the community will recognize the Attleboro Rotary Club as an organization they can be a part of.
