June is Rotary Fellowship Month

There are more than 80 Rotary Fellowships. From sports and hobbies to professional interests, these groups draw members from around the world.

From stamp collecting to ballroom dancing, the interests of Rotarians are as diverse as the membership itself. Yet, among the more than 1.2 million Rotarians worldwide, an amateurradio enthusiast or a chess player is bound to find others who share the same passions. But Rotary Fellowship members share more than just their common interest in sport diving, golf, fishing, or scouting; they share an interest in fellowship and service and in promoting world understanding. As such, it’s no wonder that the International Skiing Fellowship of Rotarians donates the profits from ski events to The Rotary Foundation or that the Flying Rotarians help ferry medical personnel and supplies. Rotary Fellowships also unite Rotarians who have shared professional interest in such fields as arts and communication and finance/banking. Members exchange technical information and seek opportunities to employ their expertise in service not just to their own communities and countries, but to their professions as well.

They're just one more way Rotarians are promoting international fellowship, friendship, and service.

Overview of the program

Global Networking Groups allow individual Rotarians from several countries to join together to focus on common interests. Through these groups, you can -

•    Share fellowship and friendship with thousands of Rotarians
•    Meet other Rotarians with a similar hobby or vocational background
•    Collaborate with Rotarians from around the world who are dedicated to a particular area of service

There are two types of Global Networking Groups: Rotary Fellowships and Rotarian Action Groups.

Rotary Fellowships

Rotary Fellowships offer Rotarians the opportunity to make friends with others in Rotary who share a common vocation, hobby, or recreational interest.

Rotarian Action Groups

Rotarian Action Groups conduct international service projects that further the Object of Rotary. If you're interested in supporting a particular type of service activity, there may be a Rotarian Action Group for you.

Member Retention: Now you got them so how do you keep them?

 Many clubs are looking for ways to keep their members, but may not realize that they may be losing them until they notice that meetings are consistently not well attended or that membership numbers decrease from month to month. So the question is, when does member retention start? Immediately! The first day a member joins, your club has to constantly work to keep members happy and find new and innovative ways to maintain member satisfaction. After all, the largest majority of non-renewals come from first-year members with a loss rate as high as 50 percent.
Did you know that it’s cheaper to retain a member rather than recruit a new one? Why is that the case? Because when a member is lost, two must be recruited to grow so it's double the time, effort, and money to attain the desired results. Also, when a member is retained, new growth occurs with every new recruit since it is likely that every member will bring in at least one new one. So how can you make this happen for your club?

Rotary Foundation Thought



This week’s Rotary Foundation Thought is about Foundation programs.

Past District Governor Linda Coble says: ―I have been a Rotarian since 1987, but I have never dropped polio vaccine into the mouths of babes in faraway countries. I have not rolled up my sleeves to renovate a school in the Philippines with my fellow club members. I have not led a Group Study Exchange team to a foreign country or followed doctors on missions across the sea. But I feel in my heart that I have been there, done that all ... and more. Foundation giving comes in many ways. As a Multiple Paul Harris Fellow, I know that my contributions have enabled my fellow Rotarians who could make a difference up close and personally. I know I was there in the spirit of Service Above Self.‖


The ABC's of Rotary



Intercountry Comittees 

In 1931, Rotarians in France and Germany organized the petit cormite, a small group with the goal of fostering better relations between the people of these two neighboring nations. Since that time, Rotarians throughout Europe have led the way in creating Intercountry Committees to encourage contacts between Rotarians and Rotary clubs across national boundaries. 

Intercountry Committees have now been established in many parts of the world to promote friendship as well as to cooperate in sponsoring World Community Service projects, student exchanges, and other activities to improve understanding among nations. Frequently, the Intercountry Committees sponsor visits of Rotarians and their families across national borders and arrange intercity meetings and conferences. 
In some instances, Intercountry Committees are created between countries separated by great distances in an effort to encourage goodwill and friendship with matched or partner areas of the world. The Intercountry Committees coordinate their efforts with the district governors of their countries and always serve in an advisory capacity to districts and clubs. 
Intercountry Committees provide an additional means for Rotary clubs and Rotarians to fulfill the responsibilities of the fourth Avenue of Service international understanding, goodwill, and peace.

Be The Inspiration!

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.”
