Our annual District Conference takes place on Friday and Saturday (April 19-20) at the Marriott Northeast Cincinnati in Mason. Hope you will join us. Here’s why:
If you’re a new club officer, or a new Rotarian, you will learn about how other clubs raise money, how they organize their community projects, and how they attract and retain members.
You will return to your club with terrific ideas to enable you to lead your Rotary Club in all of the ways you want to go in 2013-2014.
It’s been 25 years since women were first admitted as members of Rotary clubs. The differences in our clubs and activities have been significant and the changes women introduced have been sweeping.
We will celebrate a quarter century of women as Rotarians and Rotary leaders — and hear from women who are at the very top of their professions and in Rotary International.
You really don’t want to miss this opportunity for yourself — and for your club. Make sure that your club sends at least one officer or member.
How can you and your Rotary Club make a difference? Picture this:
- We have 52 clubs with 3,000 Rotarians in our district in southwest Ohio.
- 2 years ago, our clubs collected more than 3,000 pairs of shoes plus socks and shoe laces for the international Shoes for Orphan Souls program.
- If every member of your club donated one pair of new shoes, we will once again help people less fortunate than ourselves. (When was the last time you saw a Rotarian attend one of your club events in bare feet?)
- You have a full 4 days to make this happen. Why not ask your members to help ASAP so that you can deliver your club’s donated shoes at the District Conference?
- This is such an easy project. What’s stopping you?
- When we hit 3,000 pairs of shoes, we will send you a photo of that big pile!
Does your Rotary Club have enough members?
Do you need more support for your club’s activities from your community?
Are you searching for ways to raise more money to do good in your community?
I’m betting that your answer is “Yes!” to every one of these questions. Then you should join us all day Saturday for the break-out sessions. Some very smart Rotarians will join you to share ideas and what works to help you achieve your goals for your club.
Don’t let the District Conference go by without you or at least one of the incoming officers from your club.
We have killer deserts and a hospitality suite. One of the best parts about being a Rotarian is that we know how to have fun.
You will meet great folks. You will see old friends. You will have a good time.
How many more reasons do you need to join us at the District Conference April 19-20?
Or, if you just can’t make it, then why not make sure someone from your club attends?
