Why Organization's Fail

Rotary didn't stop developing membership because people were not interested in joining local Rotary clubs. Recent membership metrics have proven that. It stopped growing because Rotary and its member clubs became product oriented instead of member oriented. They marketed the results of the Object of Rotary instead of its value to its member clubs and Rotarians - its customers - those who fund its operations.

This is an example of Rotary opening leadership, so now is the time to utilize email and social media to spread the word so Hopeful Rotarians can make their views known.  I have, by email and through past Rotatorials.  Everyone interested in how The Rotary Foundation raises and utilizes funds should take this opportunity to express their thoughts.
