The Swap Meet, a Mix of Club Service Projects
Clubs are looking to learn from your club’s experience?  Who? What? Where? When? What’s hot, what’s not? Share your club’s service project experience in this rapid fire exchange of ideas. Share your success with other clubs during two Saturday “Swap Meet” Breakout Sessions.  Contact David Amborn at damborn@charter.net or 608-317-4712.
Making it Rain, Club Fundraisers
Does your club have a fundraiser that you're particularly proud of?   If the Rotary mission matters, then fundraising isn’t evil… it’s necessary!  Without the money to carry out your programs and vision, your club will not be able to succeed. 
Here’s where you can help. Share your success with other clubs at the Friday afternoon “Making it Rain” Breakout Sessions. Contact David Amborn at damborn@charter.net
or 608-317-4712.
Pull up a Chair,” Attracting & Retaining Club Membership
Saturday, June 8th   3:10 – 5:00 pm
Many clubs find it challenging to recruit new members. Well, you never know where you might meet a qualified prospective member, so it’s a good idea to always be prepared on how you want to promote Rotary to others. Retaining members is in fact just as difficult as attracting new members. Just as businesses try to motivate their employees to work harder and progress, clubs need to motivate their members in order to be able to maintain retention rates. “Pull up a Chair,” let’s talk about attracting and retaining club membership.
