UPCOMING WEBINAR – Registration open

5 Attributes of Successful and Agile Clubs, Wednesday, 24 August at 11:00 Chicago time (UTC-5): Have you ever wondered why Rotary loses approximately the same number of members as it brings in each year?

Beginning this year, any member can nominate another member during the 1 August-30 September nomination period. Do you know a member of any gender who is doing great work to advance women in Rotary? Now is the time to recognize them for their contributions.
