Rotary Means Business is a Fellowship of Rotary International focused on supporting businesses based on the ethical standards present in Rotary. 
Mission Statement
Rotary Means Business encourages Rotarians to support the success of their fellow Rotarians by doing business with them, and by referring others to them. 
Rotary District 7930 launced the first Rotary Means Business Chapter centered near the intersections of Routes 93 and 128 on November 30, 2015. Over forty Rotarians and friends attended the inaugural event and made professional contacts. After cocktails and appetizers, the program was introduced to the attendees and then Rotarian Andy Winig gave a presentation on maximizing results with an elevator speech. After the interactive presentation, the group had another chance to network and practice their elevator speeches before heading home for the night. 
Twenty Rotarians and guests have already responded to the post event survey. The results indicate that most everyone was either very satisfied of extremely satisfied with the event. The guest speaker, Andy Winig was very well received and received a lot of positive comments about his presentation. Ninety-three percent would being a guest to a similar event. The preference for future meetings were Tuesdays first and Mondays second, and six o'clock was by far the preferred starting time. Of all of the possible ideas for future programs, the topics of presentation skills, mentorship, both utilizing a mentor and being a mentor were the top choices. Following closely were collaboration skills, self-assessment, time management and setting goals. In fact, all of the topics showed considerable interest. Now we have to find solid presenters for each of these topics. If you, or someone you know is qualified, please forward me their information.
