Six Step Plan for Sustainable Rotary Club Growth

What will rocket your club to new
heights in membership growth!
Written by Robyn T. Braley

Membership growth is a primary focus for every service organization.

However, the challenge is not growth for growth sake. The challenge is to achieve sustainable growth to ensure long-term viability.

Growth requires a commitment by current members to share their passion for the mission of the organization. And, as we know, enthusiasm is contagious.  

I know what question is on your mind. "Is there a magic bullet that will propel my Rotary Club to unprecedented growth?"

Probably not! Sustainable growth is seldom that easy.

And, the 'sustainable' part is hardest. Put simply, if your club has an influx of new members, will they become integrated and stay? 

New members add vitality and energy. The way they are nurtured and helped to blend into the life of your club impacts it's future. 

Why is that important? Because the work Rotary does serving others is too important not to continue doing it through future generations.
