Committee Membership
It's August already! I am guessing we are all shocked that we are in the last month of summer. This season definitely does not last long enough!
As I stated at my opening address, we are looking for a Rotarian to serve as our membership chairperson for the year.  Please contact Ron if interested.  This will definitely be a joint effort. 
Lastly, we are looking for members to serve on our Service/Community Focus Committee, Public Image Committee and Membership Committee!
Updates from District 6250
District Membership Grants:
Our District Membership Grants are back for 2023-2024! There's money available and you can use these funds to support membership growth in your current club, develop a new club in your community (anyone considering a satellite club?), or give your newest members some funds to get them engaged in a project while they're still new members!
Leadership Opportunities – District and Beyond
We know that your clubs are filled with incredible leaders.  Please let us know if there are any of your members you would recommend as we look to build our TEAM at the District and Zone level.  Some key positions we are hoping to fill include:  Membership Chair, Assistant Governors for Areas 2/3/6/10/11, DEI Chair, Tri-Con Vice Chair, and so many more. Please share these opportunities at club meetings and in your club communication. Learn more HERE.
Reminders/Important Tid-Bits:
Just a reminder that we will be transitioning to a new administrative and financial services team.  More information can be found HERE.
