SGR Hears Board Member Reports

Board member reports were the order of the day on Monday, August 14, 2017.

Foundation Chair Dave Prisbrey spoke on how donations to RI “come back to us in 3 years.He also explained the concept of EREY and encouraged members to support the RI Foundation.

Secretary and PI Chair Linda Sappington asked each member to review his/her bio on the club website and update as needed.She also indicated Brandon Staples will be assuming some responsibility for keeping the website current and for expanding our social media presence. In her role as PI chair, Linda noted the more involved in “service above self” our club is, the more opportunities to “say Rotary” in our club and community.

Grant Carter, Membership Chair, shared some thoughts from the book “How We Decide” noting Rotary is famous for comradry and an environment where friendships can grow, but most members don’t know enough about RI to be able to share their knowledge with others. “We are missing members who either don’t attend or who have left our association,” he noted.“Imagine all the good we could do if everyone took part.”

PEN Brandon Staples spoke on how to get the word out about all the good Rotary does in the world. He encouraged members to get in the habit of posting pictures on social media … of club activities, club socials, and provide Rotary marketing materials and display the 4-Way Test in our offices.

In the interest of time, President Rulon and PE Lynn Beecher will report at another upcoming meeting.
