Welcome to week three of our Rotary year!
I’m excited about this week because I get to start doing my official club visits which is, of course, the best part of this job. I have many of your clubs on my calendar already. If you haven’t had a chance to schedule a visit, please send me two or three dates this week to schedule a visit between now and the end of our Rotary year. Sooner is better, and I’ll most likely be available for at least one of the dates.
I am very proud to say that the majority of the clubs in our district have their presidents-elect designated for next year. It’s very important to have a president-elect assigned as early in the year as possible. This allows the incoming president to experience an entire Rotary year with the knowledge that they will be leading the club the following year. Please remember to have them listed in DACdb, Rotary Club Central, and ensure they have created a rotary.org account.
Let’s Each One Bring One.
Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta has an initiative he hopes will increase Rotary’s membership worldwide. He’s asking each member to bring a non-Rotarian or previous Rotarian to a Rotary meeting, service project, or social event.
The objective is to expose more people to Rotary. We may not always get a member out of this initiative, but more people will learn about what we do, and that’s always a positive thing.
This year, let’s each one bring one. Rotary is too awesome to keep to ourselves.
Have a great Rotary week, everyone!
