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.

Recently, I attended a memorable event, the inauguration of a 15-member satellite club, Garth, in South Wales District 1150. What is unique about this satellite is that it is being hosted by my own club of Chelwood Bridge, which is in District 1200. How is that so? Read more of this post

Lorna Gunning Fratschko, President of the Rotary Club of London South has implemented a program in her business whereby non-profits can benefit from her business relationships. She wants to share the concept with other District 6330 Rotarians. It's an intriguing way for her to serve her community through vocational service. 

Lorna writes:
I think it's important to put your money where your values are. My SAVE & IMPACT program contributes an ADDITIONAL 10% of my clients’ billings to the charitable organization of their choice!

The past governor of District 7620 became part of an effort to produce a new documentary, "Dare to Dream," with the goal of telling more members about the heroes who put Rotary on the road to polio eradication, and the roadblocks they overcame.

The Rotary Club of Hanover changed it's meeting schedule and structure - with positive results. This is a success story of how change in a Rotary club can help it become more engaged and more active in the community.
The crisis point was at the start of the new millennium - as Al Morrow put it:
"The decline came to a head in the few years after the turn of the century (2000). Our membership had dwindled to about 8 members (from a high of 30+) and something had to be done and in reality, thinking back, it could have gone either way."
