July Membership Forum: Effective Membership Committees

By Christine Waugh

Looking to optimize your Club’s Membership Committee effort?

That’s the focus of the District 5110 Membership Forum next Tuesday, July 20th at 10am via zoom. At this Forum, we’ll focus on Effective Membership Committees. Without passionate Rotarians, we’re not Rotary!

These committees are crucial in the support and involvement of your membership. This is an opportunity for clubs to share their challenges and solutions. This month’s facilitator is Julie Aubry. She is the Regional Membership Officer (RMO) at Rotary International World Headquarters working with western United States and the south west part of Canada (Zones 26 & 27). She works with club, district, and zone level volunteers to support membership growth and engagement through strategic planning; vibrant membership initiatives; new club development; and promoting membership resources, tools and data.
