The District Membership Committee is looking for enthusiastic members who are interested in coming together to help start new clubs in our district!
 
The team will work with the an experience member of the Membership Committee, who has helped to start multiple Rotary clubs, to assess geographic areas, demographics or causes which may not currently be represented in Rotary. The goal is to help that community start a new club, without impacting an existing nearby club. 
 
Rotary is such an amazing opportunity, so you will be helping more people experience Rotary, who may not have found their club yet or who may not be able to access a club.
The commitment is about 1 hour per month. 
 
Please email Samantha Fewster, Membership and Club Development Director, to express your interest in being part of this team (samantha.fewster@rotaryeq.org).
