Membership Growth Part II January 30, 2020
 
“Whatever Rotary means to us, to the world it will be known by the results it achieves.” Paul Harris 1914
 
Membership Chair Rick provided a quick review from the previous week:
  • Membership growth, to be effective, should involve all of us.
  • Simple analysis identifies only 44 of 61 members who are active at various levels with meetings and events.
  • 59% of our members have 10 or more years of experience (38% of this group have over 20+ years).
  • 70% of club is 60 years ‘plus’ (29% at 70 years ‘plus’) – keep in mind….
  • Dues paying membership over past 5 years averaged about 55.
Conclusion: it would be advised that our recruitment efforts increase so we can maintain our steady membership totals as our club continues to age.
Enter the ‘ELEVATOR CLUB’ who exemplify – train the trainers.

Do for others!
Do what you do then lead to what we can do together.
More rewarding to me than what I can do alone.
Look at all the projects we have done, locally and globally.
Personal additional driving force Polio Eradication. Sister age 2 had polio.
 
Jean Searfoss
We have a lot of fun helping people locally and around the world.
Tremendous diversity of opportunities and projects.
Non-political, religious, racial, etc.!
With so many things dividing people these days (like politics), Rotary brings us together.
If you see the spark in their eye, go to the next floor!
