A goal without a plan is merely a dream.
Does your club have a realistic net membership goal for attracting and engaging members?  A goal must be measurable, specific, attainable, and have accountability.  If not, it is not too late to set a net membership goal but at the same time, a PLAN is a must to accomplish that goal.   Don’t know where or how to start creating an attraction or an engagement plan?  Click HERE for a template and a sample guide for some attraction and engagement plan ideas.  You can also contact your membership team representative if you would like to discuss ideas or have questions.
  
 
Considerations for Establishing a Satellite Group
If a Rotary club is considering establishing a Satellite group, the club board and club members should investigate the merits of starting a Satellite Group and determine if a Satellite Group is desirable. The Satellite Group option may not be the right answer for every club. Satellite Group formation, management, and support require a significant amount of time and ongoing effort by the sponsor club and is not a "quick fix" to growing membership. Is there a need in the community for another Rotary Group that could meet at a different time? Are there certain demographic groups that would make a Satellite Group desirable in the community? Are there individuals in the community that are unable to join Rotary because of a required financial commitment?
 
Congratulations to these “GREEN” clubs that have had a net increase in Membership for the current Rotary year.
