Another option if life is too busy for you but you think you may like to volunteer , consider becoming a 'Friend of Rotary' and help support Rotary on helping in the Community
The Membership Committee is made up of Club members looking membership recruitment, membership retention, and finding innovative ways to raise the profile of the club.
1. Membership Recruitment
Our aim is to continue building up our membership, with the active participation of all existing Club members through service and fundraising. The Club needs to grow.
2. Membership Retention
Members are more likely to stay in a club if if they engage in club activities , taking part in Service and Fund Raising
3. Raising the Club Profile through PR
We have formed a sub committee three years ago to look at the Club profile and promote the Club activities. We have built up a group of "Friends of Rotary" - Meaning people who are not currently in a position to become Rotarians, but interested in helping our fundraising. We would like to to strengthen our links with several groups of people in our community, including younger people who may not have enough time to commit themselves to Rotary membership, but who could be keen to support the Club. We are looking for business people or community minded people to help Rotary serve the community
What does it mean to be a member of Rotary?
Rotary is an organisation of men and women who volunteer their time and talents to serve their communities at home and overseas. It is the largest humanitarian service organisation in Great Britain and Ireland for people who want to make a better world, and who are dedicated to providing friendly help to local and international communities.
The world's Rotary clubs meet weekly and are non-political, non-religious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.
To many local people here in Lowestoft , Rotary may evoke a Christmas Sleigh with Santa & his helpers each year. For others, it may be the Annual Charity Cycle Ride perhaps a Quiz Night or maybe a Charity Golf Tournament. Whichever, its Rotary in action locally, raising funds and supporting local & international charities.
Like many service organisations today, the club is keen to maintain its support of the local community. However, without an injection of new blood in the shape of some younger new members, it will soon be unable to do this.
Rotarians are active, enthusiastic men and women of all ages and from all walks of life. They share a common interest in helping those less fortunate than themselves and, most importantly, enjoying friendship and fun.
So if you want the chance to give something to others and you want to use your talents, energy and professional skills to make a difference, then why not consider joining a newly invigorated Rotary Club of Lowestoft East Point?
