Membership Tools You Can Use
                   Attracting – Engaging – Retaining -  Members
Sometimes you do not have to climb over the fence or scale a wall. All you have to do is stand on your toes and peek over the top to get a new view of things.
While attending a conference in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA, for Rotary Zones 24 and 32 this past September, this thought came to my mind. “They can’t see over the fence.” Many of the district membership leaders were expressing all the challenges they have with membership growth and retention despite all their efforts.
Bring them in, keep them
Rotary, as many of us know, has had a large turnover in members during the past decade. We are losing as many as we are bringing in. This tells me attraction is not the issue but retention. We are good at bringing them in and terrible at keeping them. I agree engagement is important, but satisfaction is key. Many new members joined Rotary because of the ideals of Rotary. People do not leave Rotary. They leave clubs who did not live up to their Rotary expectations.

Greetings Fellow Rotarians! The Rotary world celebrates the work of The Rotary Foundation during the month of November. We all know the mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace. Our gifts are transformed into projects that change lives with funding Grants that assist in the prevention of disease, building peace, providing clean water, supporting maternal and child health, promoting education and supporting local economies.
When considering making Club or personal contributions, it is fitting to mention that The Rotary Foundation of RI has again been awarded the coveted 4-star rating for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency by Charity Navigator, America’s premier charity evaluator. We can all stand proud of this achievement of a 96.31% rating. Our Rotary Foundation is one of the best in the world.
During this Rotary Foundation Month, our District extends its congratulations to the top three District clubs for their outstanding contributions in the Annual Fund Per Capita Giving to the Rotary Foundation in the 2014-2015 Rotary year. Our thanks to:
1) Rotary Club of Goderich
2) Rotary Club of London-Lambeth
3) Rotary Club of Grand Bend
