Bob Shusta - Birth of a Textbook

Bob shared that he is the author of Multicultural Law Enforcement text books. The textbooks are used as a way help train police officers to identify and understand multiple cultures. It all started when he did a paper on Multicultural Law Enforcement and was recognized as number one in his class. He has since co-authored six books and number seven will be out very soon.

Take steps to expand your club for Membership Month

 Rotary News -- 1 August 2013 

During Membership and Extension Month, we have planned a variety of activities to help you get your club members involved and share your passion for Rotary. Building strong and vibrant clubs is critical for Rotary’s future. Here are some steps you can take this month to attract new members and engage the ones you already have:

  • Join our Thunderclap and share a powerful membership message with the world on the last day of August. Thunderclap is a tool that allows thousands of people to connect their social media accounts to send a single, simple, amplified message all at once. Spread a message on Facebook and Twitter that is sure to be heard. Learn more about Thunderclap and how it works.
The Four Way Test
Of the things we think, say or do:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
