Why Organization's Fail

Organization failure begins at the top. Rotary did not stop growing because people were not interested in joining local Rotary clubs. The number of people joining Rotary clubs proves that. It stopped growing because its leaders assumed it was in the business of supplying humanitarian services rather than in the business of creating Rotarians; they were product oriented instead of member oriented.

At last, the Rotary International Board of Directors has acknowledged that membership awards should be based on annual, invoiced dues instead of having interim cutoff dates.  

The pictured Membership Development Award brochure can be downloaded by going to https://www.rotary.org and searching for Membership Development Award. 

It is interesting to note that this went into effect this Rotary year but doesn't seem to be common knowledge among Rotary's almost 35,000 member clubs.  I wonder why?
