Incoming Rotary District 1080 Governor Robert Lovick's main strategy for his year of office is to make Rotary more accessible and up-to-date in it's communication with the public, the principal aim being to attract new members into the movement.
Ray Burman, Rotary District 1080 Membership Chairman, attended a meeting of the Club to explain Robert's proposals and the new policies that have been created, whereby there will be a greater emphasis on keeping the public aware of the work and the aims of Rotary, both on a local and a global basis whilst maintaining the very social fellowship within the Club.
Rotary members fondly think that because they themselves know what Rotary does, everyone else will know, but this is far from true. Clubs are being encouraged to work with District Membership Advocates whose task it will set up membership workshops and Seminars to acquaint the invited guests of the immense scale and diversity of aid that Rotary carries out in local communities and worldwide.
The Rotary Club of King's Lynn will shortly announce a series of events, designed to inform and encourage members of the public to consider becoming Rotarians.
The carpet-slipper, pipe-smoking mildly intoxicated old man image, frequently portrayed in the media, in no way describes a typical Rotarian; the truth is so different. Young, active and successful men and women are joining Rotary to continue the constant need for aid and support to the less fortunate, both at home and abroad.
If you are invited to attend a Rotary event, please accept. There is never any pressure to join, but once you experience the social atmosphere and comraderie within the movement, many will want to join of their own accord
