Dwindling attendance forced the Rotary Club of Langhorne, Pennsylvania, USA, to rethink its approach. It now allows members to designate “clones” to attend meetings and participate in projects on their behalf or along with them. Find out how cloning got new people involved in the club and its activities, saved busy members from leaving Rotary, and ultimately gave new energy to the club. 
Five values that attract young professionals
Michael Walstrom, of the Rotary Club of Boca Raton Downtown, Florida, USA, was 38 when he was asked to create a program for young professionals in his district.

The Passport Club model is designed to be a low-cost, flexible model club, allowing for different meeting types and locations, social functions, and volunteer opportunities each month. This type of club can assist local clubs with projects and provide a home for new and transferring Rotarians if this model better suits their needs or while determining if one of the areas traditional clubs makes sense for them.
