Rotary makes high-quality health care available to vulnerable mothers and children so they can live longer and grow stronger. We expand access to quality care, so mothers and children everywhere can have the same opportunities for a healthy future. An estimated 5.9 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, inadequate health care, and poor sanitation — all of which can be prevented.

International Conventions

Each May or June, Rotary International holds a worldwide convention “to stimulate, inspire, and inform all Rotarians at an international level.” The convention, which may not be held in the same country for more than two consecutive years, is the annual meeting to conduct the business of the association. The planning process usually begins about four or five years in advance. In selecting the site, the RI Board determines a general location and invites cities to make proposals.
 
The conventions are truly international events that 20,000 to 35,000 Rotarians and guests attend. In addition to being fun events, international conventions offer Rotarians unique opportunities for vacation travel. Upcoming conventions are scheduled for Brisbane, Australia (2003); Osaka, Japan (2004); and Chicago, Illinois, USA (2005). All members should plan to participate in a Rotary International convention to discover the real internationality of Rotary. It is an experience you’ll never forget.

Membership Retention with a Survey

 Retaining existing members is vital to the success of any club. The more members you retain, the more service you are able to perform. In general, members are retained because they are satisfied with some aspect of being involved, whether that is their participation or the validation they feel after a job well done.
 
Surveying your members can be an integral part of your club's retention plan, and allows you to take action to prevent loss of members. It's important to measure your club's effectiveness among your current membership roster to find out if what you are currently doing is working or if it needs to change. As there are always new ideas and techniques evolving to increase productivity and progression within your club, there are a number of ways you can gather this information. Often times people will not proactively complain or provide feedback unless asked, and a survey allows you to pinpoint exactly where the club weaknesses reside. You can even decide to make your survey anonymous, something that may prompt more honesty.
 
You can create a survey using one of many free survey tools such as Survey Monkey, Zoomerang, or Survey Console, and providing a direct link to it on your web site or eBulletin, or you can create one using Word or PDF and post it in your "documents" section for members to download, complete and submit by email (although this method will not allow you to create an anonymous survey). A some questions that you can ask to gauge your club's effectiveness are below:
 
  • What was the main reason you joined the club?
  • How long have you been a member?
  • How did you learn about becoming a member?
  • How active are you in your club?

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.”
