August is Membership and New Club Development Month

There are two ways to add to the number of hands we have joining us in Rotary service. One way is to bring in new members, either in existing clubs or by forming new ones. The other is the subject of focus for RI President R. Gordon R. McInally, and that is engaging existing members to retain them. This month is a great time to evaluate existing clubs and make any needed adjustments. As Paul Harris said, “This is a changing world, we must be prepared to change with it. The story of Rotary will have to be written again and again.”

We’ve recently seen changes in the qualifications for Rotary membership, the meeting attendance requirements, etc. These have helped our membership challenge, but more change may be needed to assure existing members find their club membership valuable and engaging. has a large assortment of membership resources to help you assess and reinforce that value.
