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.
  • Take part in our Membership Challenge and set concrete plans for increasing your club’s membership. You choose your goals -- such as referring a new member, inviting a friend to your club or service project, or connecting with alumni. Once you submit your goals, we’ll send you an email listing steps to take to meet your goals.
  • Watch RI President Ron Burton’s message on membership

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?
