August is Membership & Extension Month
As you all know, next summer Metro Rotary will celebrate its 20th anniversary of the club charter. During this time, we have been fortunate to have numerous professionals from the Columbia community as members of our club. However, membership development is a constant and ongoing process.
This year, I encourage you to follow closely the work of our Membership Committee. Chairman John Stringer welcomes your assistance in recruiting and receiving new members into our club. As the opportunity presents itself, please feel free to bring your colleagues or other business professionals to one of our luncheons. We are always interested in sharing the Metro success story, and we are happy to share all the good work that Rotary clubs do.
To increase our membership, I think it is important to share specific events in our history that has special meaning for you. We need to share the benefits of our club, and Rotary overall, in order to create a complete understanding of the value we provide. There are a lot of quality individuals in our community who I believe would be interested in putting Service Above Self!
I appreciate everyone’s efforts to make our club stronger and more vibrant throughout the year.
