Rotary International President’s Message

Dear Fellow Rotarians,

When someone asks you, "What is Rotary?" what do you say? I think we've all had the experience of being
asked that deceptively simple question and finding ourselves suddenly at a loss for words. Even the most
articulate among us have a hard time capturing the essence of our organization in just a few sentences.
As an organization, Rotary has always had a difficult time conveying the scope of our work: not just what
we do, but how we do it, and the value of what we contribute to the world.
As an accountant, I like numbers. They work in every language, and often they communicate complex
information much more effectively than words. That is why, in this Rotary year, I am asking each club to
provide Rotary headquarters with two numbers: the amount of money, both in cash and in kind, spent on
humanitarian service; and the number of hours of work performed in Rotary's name.
If we want these numbers to be useful, they have to be accurate. That means beginning now to accurately
track the hours and the money that our clubs spend on their service.
The simplest way for clubs to provide this information at the end of the year will be by entering it every
month on Rotary Club Central – a tool that has been completely rebuilt and relaunched to be significantly
more useful, and user-friendly, than it has been in the past. If for some reason (for example, limited internet
access) your club is not able to connect to Rotary Club Central, please be in touch with your district
governor, who will ensure that your information can be submitted through other means.
I cannot emphasize strongly enough that the goal of this effort is not getting the largest and most
impressive numbers. There is not going to be any competition, recognition, or public use whatsoever of the
numbers reported by any individual club. The goal is accurate and reliable numbers that we can present
confidently in our public image work, in our membership materials, and to our partners – numbers backed
by specific data, on the club level, that answer not only the question, "What is Rotary?" but the question,
"What does Rotary do?"
I strongly believe that with these numbers, we will be better able to demonstrate the value of Rotary:
Making a Difference – which in time will enable us to make more of a difference, for more people, in more
ways, than ever.

From the Editor’s Desk

We live in an era which is dominated by too many and too frequent disrupting
revolutions in Information & Communications Technologies. Organizations
which can foresee on coming changes and adapt will survive and rest will
simply perish in the onslaught. Present challenge for us is how to leverage
the converging software and hardware technologies of smartphones in the
various day to day working aspects of Rotary to attract new generations. For
example, make at least one meeting in a month optional to meet via video
conferencing. Food for thought for next CoL!!!

Happy Reading ..

Raavi Srinivas

Editor, GML, RID 3150.

Designated Month Page

August - Designated Month -
Membership Development & Extension


Hello Folks! We are into the Second month of Rotary Year 2017 and we
have put up an ambitious task of having a net growth of 1000 Members in
our district before the end of 30th June 2018. Exhaustive Discussions,
Seminars and Club Meetings have taken place during the last few months
and it is time for us to ‘WALK THE TALK’. Basically the challenges in front of us
are to attract New Members, Retain the Existing Members and extension of New Clubs in areas where Rotary is
not represented in our District. The Statistics of Membership Growth for the last several years has not been very
encouraging and if there was a sudden spurt in one year it was basically because of new clubs being chartered
during that year.
It was agreed at the DG council meeting that weak clubs (less than 20 members) need to be strengthened
by adding more members before 31st Dec’17 or they will be advised to merge with another Club.
We shall all work together to see that our District achieves a 20% net growth with an addition of at least a
few new clubs towards the end of this Rotary Year.
