TODAY IN ROTARY Linda Sappington reported on only a small amount of information received at the October 27-30 Rotary 21b-27 Zone Institute in Salt Lake City. According to Greg Podd, RI VP, “retention is Rotary’s #1 issue. “ District PI Director Linda also noted, “RI has a strong emphasis on public awareness because, even after 111 years, people on the street are still asking, ‘what’s Rotary?”
At the conclusion of her presentation, Linda distributed 3 questions and asked her fellow Rotarians to discuss “what should we as a club stop doing? What should we as a club start doing? and What should we as a club continue to do … just do it better?” The answers – some predictable and some surprising – will be discussed futher both by the board and by club members in our efforts to keep SGR relevant in the community.
