Are you a Business or Professional leader in your community, seeking to make a difference in the world around you?
 
Rotarians are passionate people driven by the ideal of service. As a part of Rotary, you get to network with and give back to communities around the globe. District 5830 is made up of 41 clubs and over 1500 members across NE Texas, SE Oklahoma, and SW Arkansas.
August is Membership and New Club Development Month, a time for Rotary leaders to focus on the most important part of our organization, our members. We need to attract new members, engage them and retain them.
 
Attract:   Think about visiting new businesses, new neighbors and friends. You have to ask! Create a welcoming culture for all to know they are valued.

Engage: Ask them what committees or projects interest them.
 
Retain:   Remember that if you want responsible Rotarians, you give them responsibilities!
Angela and I recently had the opportunity to travel to Kenya for a two week trip that combined multiple service opportunities with also touring with local Rotarians to identify potential projects. These projects are wide ranging in size, but each one will be extremely impactful in the lives of some very needy families. The people we met were very warm and friendly. They were grateful for our coming to visit and talk about the needs they have. Kenya is about half the size of Texas, but has roughly twice as many people.
“Leadership is not about titles, positions, or flowcharts. It is about one life influencing another.” John C Maxwell
 
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” John Quincy Adams
 
It’s been said many times that Rotarians are leaders, and I believe it. As leaders, let’s recognize August as Rotary Membership month and lead others to Rotary so they can dream more, learn more, do more and become more!
 
We in Rotary District 5830 are Blessed in having many unsung heroes who when asked, step into needed leadership positions and quietly perform the service required. Many times, that occurs without fanfare and, sometimes, sadly without thanks and praise.
 
Ingrid Self is such a leader! When asked by PDG Ted Huffhines to assist on the District Foundation Committee, she quietly and expertly stepped into the role and served as a grant writer and sometimes grant creator for our District Rotary Foundation Grants.
