If you're attending the RI Convention next month, be sure to check out the following membership development opportunities.


Three workshops will focus on different elements of membership development:

  • Recruitment - Monday, 18 June, 13:30-15:00
  • Retention - Tuesday, 19 June, 13:30-15:00
  • Club Extension - Tuesday, 19 June, 15:30-17:00
Each workshop will be led by representatives from RI's Membership Development and Retention Committee and experienced regional Rotary International membership coordinators from various parts of the world. They'll discuss trends, action-oriented strategies, best practices, and programs that clubs can implement.

Interactive Discussion Groups
Two interactive discussion groups will focus on membership development:

  • Recruitment - Monday, 18 June, 15:30-17:00
  • Retention - Tuesday, 19 June, 15:30-17:00
Choose the topic and style that's right for you: Workshops feature presentations and questions for a panel of experts. Interactive discussion groups invite participants to discuss membership strategies and best practices with fellow group members.
