August is Membership & Extension Month
This year, Metro Rotary begins its 23rd year of service. Since the beginning of our club, 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. Committee Co-chairs Jaime Freidrichs and Casey Buckman welcome 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 weekly luncheons. We are always interested in sharing the story of Metro Rotary’s engagement and impact in the community as well as in our own lives.
There are many wonderful individuals in our community who are just an invitation away from making a commitment to Service Above Self. They want to be involved and make a difference just like us. I think it is important to share specific events in our history that have special meaning for you. We each have a responsibility to invite and to share the benefits of our club and Rotary International. When we do, those potential members will see the good works we do, and positive growth will happen in our club.
Commit to being a gift to the world by helping Rotary, and Metro Rotary in particular, grow. I am truly grateful for all the efforts to make our club stronger and more vibrant throughout the year.
