Annual Membership & Foundation Workshops, August 6 …

These two annual trainings have been held on the same morning at the same location since 2013 to allow club leaders and members to car pool and yet have separate training in two of the most important aspects of club functioning.  These are the only two topic focused trainings each year.

Membership Workshop:

Want to learn more about the changes coming out of the 2016 Council on Legislation and how it affects your club’s membership and fellowship efforts?   Want to learn more about how to attract new members, especially those under 35? Want to learn how to engage the new and tenured members so that the club keeps them involved and active in club activities?  Mike Jallo, District Membership Chair, has answers to these questions. Membership Committee Chairs and the club’s entire membership committee should attend this hands-on workshop.

Rotary Foundation Workshop:

RandyandEREYYou’ve heard there have been changes in Club Giving Banners.  What happened to Every Rotarian Every Year (EREY)?  What about Sustaining Members?  With these changes how does a club encourage giving to The Rotary Foundation?  Rudy Garcia and the Development team has answers to these and other questions.This is a great chance to meet the entire Development team.

Global grants?  $30.000 threshold?  How can my club come up with a project that big? Arecropped-honduraspediheart2.jpg there any clubs in the district that we can join with in a big global grant?  My club did apply for a District Grant, if we get the grant, how and when do we document our progress?  Everything is online now. Isn’t that hard to do?  SuAnne Hardee Bryant and her Grants team will answer those questions and allay those concerns.
