Two thoughts: 
First: A word about GROWTH:
Think about the Rotary theme for September and ask potential members to visit your club that are involved in literacy and basic education. In many of our District towns, the school district is the major employer. How many teachers, aides, librarians. Sunday school teachers and parents would be excited to support the causes of literacy and education? IMAGINE the potential candidates for membership!!

Second: A word about RETENTION:
There is no need to improve on what our RI President Jennifer Jones says, so read or reread her wisdom here: 
Putting members first
The main reason Rotarians and Rotaractors remain Rotary members is that they feel welcomed and supported in their clubs. Increasing our membership continues to be a priority, but giving our members experiences they value and reasons to stay is equally important.

How can you help? To serve our communities, we first need to serve our members. Talk to your club leaders and fellow members about what they want from their Rotary experience and work together to make it happen. Learning what keeps members engaged is a powerful tool for strengthening Rotary. These membership resources can help.
Yours in Rotary Service,
