President-elect Holger’s key messages to clubs:
The district will be actively at work creating new, innovative club models and will need your support. In addition, you can also help us expand our reach by creating a satellite club and by forming a community based Rotaract club.
Every club should host at least one strategic meeting each year at which you ask: What should our club be like in five years and what steps should we take to help achieve that vision? What value do we bring our members? Select someone to lead that effort.
Select new members carefully. Make sure that they are a good fit with your club and that your club meets their expectations. Engage them and take care of them. There is no wrong age to become a Rotarian.
Continue your club’s efforts to end polio by donating to End Polio Now and by hosting a World Polio Day event in October. We must fulfill the promise that we made to the children of this world.
