Presidential Conferences

From time to time, Rotarians see promotional literature announcing a presidential or regional peace conference to be held some place in the world. Such a conference is quite similar to the annual Rotary International convention but smaller in attendance and serving Rotarians and guests in a region that is a considerable distance from the site of the international convention.
 
The purpose of an RI presidential conference is to develop and promote acquaintance, friendship, and understanding among the attendees, as well as to facilitate the development of international service projects, and provide a forum to discuss and exchange ideas about Rotary and activities to promote goodwill and understanding. A few peace conferences have actually initiated peaceful relations among nations with historic conflicts. Presidential conferences are considered special events on the Rotary calendar and are not held on any regular schedule. The conferences are arranged by a committee appointed by the RI president.
 
Rotarians from all parts of the world are always welcome to attend. Participating in a presidential conference in another region is an enjoyable, rewarding, and fascinating experience that provides another opportunity to enjoy the international fellowship of Rotary.

Ideas to Increase your Club’s Membership

 If you're a member of a struggling club with less than 20 members, you probably believe that increasing membership in your club is difficult, if not nearly impossible. Conversely, a club that is member-strong with 40 or more will likely agree that acquiring new members is a pretty simple process. In fact, many clubs in this category spend very little time promoting their club and new members just seem to keep coming! Why is that?
 
The answer actually has very little to do with luck, but everything to do with the visitor and the public image that your club projects. Here are several proven tips to help you increase your membership:
Before launching any new member campaign, improve the quality of your meetings. Getting visitors is easy! Impressing guests enough so that they come back...now that's the challenge!

This week’s Rotary Foundation Thought is about Rotary Peace Fellows.

Vanessa Contopulos, a Rotary Peace Fellow sponsored by the Rotary Club of Temecula, California, USA (District 5330), attended the University of Bradford in England. Contopulos returned to her native San Diego after her fellowship and picked up her prefellowship work as a music therapist. Her research interests focus on the role of the arts and music in peace-building. She and a colleague are in the process of starting a consultancy called Create4Peace. Its mission is to support peace-building organizations by providing creative resources, workshops, and training. They have already begun working with local organizations and hope to expand their services to national and international opportunities.

 

Rotary International President-elect Barry Rassin laid out his vision for the future of the organization on Sunday, calling on leaders to work for a sustainable future and to inspire Rotarians and the community at large.

Rassin, a member of the Rotary Club of East Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas, unveiled the 2018-19 presidential theme, Be the Inspiration, to incoming district governors at Rotary’s International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA. “I want you to inspire in your clubs, your Rotarians, that desire for something greater. The drive to do more, to be more, to create something that will live beyond each of us.”
