Rotary Moment

Our Rotary moment today was the announcement by Tom Smith about the upcoming 2020 District conference, to be held in Vancouver April 24-26 2020. 

Guest Speaker

Today was our guest speaker was Marni Fraser, former member of our club and a third generation Rotarian. The title of her presentation was "Rotary challenge: fostering a reliable membership pipeline for a sustainable organization".

Some of the key takeways from the presentation were:

1) The importance of young member retention in a deliberate and strategic way.

2) Outreach to a younger demographic is crucial for our clubs.

3) Less than 5% of RYLA and other Rotarian youth projects end up becoming members.
