The Rotary Club of Santa Rosa: Challenge and Opportunity
Synopsis: The Rotary Club of Santa Rosa finds itself in a similar situation as most clubs in the western world. Our challenges are to attract new and younger members, get our message and successes out to the greater community, and take care of our current members so their Rotary experience remains relevant and important in their lives. All challenges are really an opportunity waiting to be recognized. In addition to these global Rotary challenges, locally, we are also in the emerging stages of recovery from a significant natural disaster. This provides an opportunity for our local Rotary to emerge as a leader in the fire recovery efforts over the next five years. This week’s session will focus on where we are as a club in terms of membership and how we can position ourselves as a significant leader in fire recovery. This effort has the potential to bring in new members wanting to be a part of local service and cement their commitment to our community and Rotary.
