Membership Summit 2022


Message from our Membership Chair:
Sean J. Sawyer
Fellow District 7545 Rotarians,

While our intent as Rotarians is “Doing Good in the World”, without MEMBERS, or even with FEWER MEMBERS, how can we expect to do that? Taken one step further, if we increase the number of our Club’s members, we increase the likelihood that we can increase our impact on our communities.

So, let’s be honest . . . no Club ever grew its membership by mistake, and the inevitable attrition without new members only leads to a smaller Club, not a bigger one. For those reasons alone, if we want our Clubs to survive the customary tests of time, we all need to constantly learn and share with each other HOW we can best go about attracting new members to our Clubs, and keeping them by delivering the value they seek and that we want Rotarians to experience and enjoy.

The ‘Road to Growth and Prosperity’ Membership Summit, scheduled for January 29 at Stonewall Resort in Roanoke, WV will provide all of us with the perfect opportunity to begin that journey, as well as further hone our new skills designed to produce stronger and healthier Clubs.

To prepare for this one-day event, a 60-minute interactive virtual conversation about ‘The Road to Growth and Prosperity” is available. So, take thirty seconds to become part of this inspirational conversation!!
