August is Rotary Membership Month which means it’s time to celebrate your Rotary club, your members, and the good you do in your community and around the world.
 
This month let’s celebrate all our active club members! At your next club meeting, turn to the Rotarian beside you and thank them genuinely for being there to share their time, talent, and expertise. And take a moment and tell your club president what your club could do to make your membership more rewarding.
 
This would also be a great month to do that fireside chat or new member orientation that you’ve been meaning to do, but just haven’t found the time. Those clubs who do these meetings find them to be very worthwhile.
 
If your club is struggling, our District Membership Chair, Bob Delavan, would be happy to visit your club. He has some great ideas for you to sharpen the focus of your club so you can bring in new members that more closely match your club’s values.
 
In whatever you do this month, Be an Inspiration to your fellow Rotarians!
 
Have a great August!

Rotary’s vision statement: why should you care?
 
 
Last June, Rotary's Board of Directors and Trustees approved a new vision statement for the organization: "Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.” Stephanie Urchick, chair of Rotary's Strategic Planning Committee, explains what went into arriving at that statement, and how you can help us chart a course for Rotary to thrive in the years ahead.
 
 
 
District 5470 Social Media Guideline
 
Introduction
The advent of social media means that you can reach your audience directly and have a two-way conversation with each one of them.
 
Now, instead of writing a message about your post as if you were delivering a speech, you now can make the style more personal.
 
Whether or not you are new to Facebook, Twitter etc., there need to be a plan, and engaging content.
 
Important
Have at least two active admins for your Rotary Club page. This way, if one person moves, leaves Rotary, etc. the user name and password are accessible.

Strengthening the Rotary Story

 
 

In 2011, Rotary launched an initiative to strengthen our image, expand public understanding of what we do, and engage and inspire current and prospective members, donors, and partners. As part of that effort, we established an internal definition of our brand, confirming Rotary as the organization that joins leaders from all continents, cultures, and occupations, who exchange ideas on solving some of the world’s toughest problems, and then take action to bring lasting change to communities around the world.  Rotarians have been working hard to tell the story of our impact in their communities. Thanks to their efforts, our public awareness levels globally have grown from 60 percent in 2012 to 75 percent in 2015.
