The Imlay City Rotary Club visited Weston Elementary and read to every class, preschool through second grade. In addition to reading, the Rotary Club also purchased a book for every student at Weston. The children were excited to get a new book and listen to their guest readers.
The 2016 Council on Legislation gave us some powerful options for changing our clubs for the purpose of building membership by keeping up with the reality of modern life. Sweeping changes were made in rules about meeting frequency, membership qualifications, age limits and club organization. As these changes were disseminated, Rotarians began to discuss how their clubs might adapt to the changing landscape. In many cases club leaders and board members were collectively scratching their heads to figure out a path to change that fit their club. One of our clubs, Genesee Valley, decided to start with a club member survey. Here is how they did it and what it revealed.

Our club meets at lunch and has a membership that is mostly retired. We do have a few younger members who have their own businesses or retired early, but gone are the days when employers encouraged their local bank managers to take two hour lunches. We began to be seen as a club that wasn’t a good fit for young working people.

By Shannon Chow, Rotaract Club of Pudu, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I first joined Rotaract when I was studying at Taylor’s University in Malaysia, and have now been in my club for close to eight years. Rotaract is a great platform to learn, practice, and exhibit leadership skills, and to be mentored by Rotarians and other Rotaractors. In addition to the professional development I have experienced, I have built so many friendships, including my best friend (now boyfriend) of seven years.

Rotaract has opened up many doors in my life. Read more of this post
