Vibrant Club Seminar

Thrasher-Horne Center
St. Johns River State College
Orange Park.

The Vibrant Club Seminar is our late summer/fall District training. This training is intended for all Rotary members. The training focuses on Membership, The Rotary Foundation and on Rotary’s Public Image. Sometimes we refer to these relationships as Rotary’s three-legged stool. If one leg is not operational the stool gets unstable; therefore, we will spend this seminar focusing on these three critical areas of your Rotary club. We will also be adding a track on leadership this year.

During this seminar, we will have a chance to acknowledge the achievements of the past Rotary year in these same three categories.

So come learn how to grow your membership! Grow your knowledge and outreach to The Rotary Foundation, learn how to communicate these achievements to the public in a significant and meaningful way, and celebrate the accomplishments your club made in the previous year with respect to membership, The Rotary Foundation, and your club’s public image.
