  1. Wonderful Jim............and vitally important for Rotarians to realize the problems they face.

  2. For Rotary clubs, centering on recruiting and net gain numbers is deadly. Primary efforts must be on retaining and attracting. Changing to the attracting mindset for all club activities completely alters direction on everything. All club activities should ask: Does this meeting, committee, weekly bulletin, program, web site, etc attract our customer - present and potential members?
