This past week, President Cheryl asked me to lead the meeting in her absence. To further the work of our strategic plan and committees; we broke into "Areas of Focus." These areas had emerged as goals during the planning process back in February.  Each Area of Focus group was given a question relating to that specific area and asked to brainstorm ideas.
Here is an outline of the results by area:
+Engaged Members (Brainstorm ideas about how to move a new member into an engaged members?)
+Community Involvement (Included in this area is Community Grants, Foundation and Youth Involvement).
What are we NOT seeing/finding as a way to connect with our community?
+Impactful Projects (Brainstorm ideas of a new fundraiser)
+Community Awareness (What "avenue" of public awareness has not been explored by Morning Star Rotary?)
The results from these conversations are being compiled and will be further communicated to the board and club in the coming weeks. These "focus groups" are emerging as a way to work together on our strategic plan.
Thanks to all that participated sharing their ideas and insights.  
Thanks and let me know if you have any questions!
