MEMBERSHIP MINUTE PRAYING AND PLANNING…for MEMBERSHIP??? Well, the title might sound a bit out of place, but think about it for a second. Praying takes you to a quiet place…a place to clear out the myriad of daily thoughts—a place to reflect on what matters, what’s important and what you can do about it. Get yourself “right” first and then it’s easier to help others…whether it’s your friend, spouse, children or your Rotary Club. While you’re at it, pray for your club, your members and your club’s health.
Take a little time to reflect on your club’s plan for membership. Is it growing as a “healthy” club should? Who or what could help it? Seek a plan. Pray for it.
It's not too late to FINISH STRONG for this year! And for our newly trained (and exhausted) president elects, now is the time to set Membership Goals and make a GROWTH PLAN for the coming year! A word of CONGRATULATIONS to our 14 clubs that have had membership INCREASES since July 1st! Big SHOUT OUTS for DOUBLE DIGIT growth to the Rotary Clubs of ANTLERS, ATLANTA, CANTON, IDABEL, OVERTON (+31%), TEXARKANA INTERNATIONAL, TEXARKANA SUNRISE, and TYLER! Strong leadership makes for a fun, growing club so, PRESIDENT ELECTS LEAD your incoming officers, especially MEMBERSHIP CHAIRS, to our District Assembly for a great training on Membership. Check the District calendar for the date and location.
