Membership Needs in Rotary District 7210 (Aired on January 2, 2022)

Highland (NY) Rotarian and past District 7210 Governor (2020-21) Tony Marmo is now the District Membership Chair. He joined Jonah Triebwasser and Kathy Kruger on RadioRotary to discuss the value of Rotary membership and his plans to increase membership in the District. Although international membership in Rotary is stable or growing slightly, Rotary, like all other similar organizations in the United States, has been shrinking somewhat as fewer Americans participate in group activities. District 7210 is no exception, having lost about 40% of its members since its high point of recent years. But the members that remain are more diverse and often younger than the older white males that once were typical of Rotarians. Today, with varied types of clubs and flexibility in meetings/arrangements, Rotary remains an important force for doing good in the world. PDG Marmo describes several ways to increase membership, although the basic first step is that each current Rotarian needs to invite community-minded friends to join.
