Notes from the Governor
5 Reasons to join Rotary.
1. Increase your social capital. Ever heard the phrase it’s not what you know it’s who you know. Rotary can have a huge impact on how many people you know.
2. World perspective. Rotary is a great place to find out why your community does or doesn’t need something as well as an opportunity to gain insight on what’s happening in the rest of the world.
3. Community involvement. As rewarding as it is to do things in the community, it’s even more rewarding to do them shoulder to shoulder with friends. What would be a tall order for one person to accomplish can often be done by a Rotary club in hours.
4. Global community involvement. There is nothing like seeing a need in another country and being able to say, “We should do something about that problem,” and know that you have the resources of your club, your District, and the Foun-dation at your finger tips.
5.Personal growth and development. Rotary will constantly challenge you with opportunities to be a leader, stretch yourself outside your comfort zone, and do something you didn’t even know you were capable of doing.
Who do you know that might find one or more of these reasons compelling enough to join Rotary?
