The Rotary Club of Ringwood, like other incorporated associations, needs to hold an Annual General Meeting to adopt committee positions and to provide an update on financial information and the annual report.
The annual general meeting was following by a board meeting of members to provide updates on the many activities undertaken by the Club. Rotary clubs have various subcommittees, which work on specific activities, such as the local community, international projects, membership, marketing, vocations and youth initiatives.
The board meetings provide an opportunity for members to receive updates on the projects and ideas considered by each of the subcommittees. This evening I discussed the membership recruitment strategies, including the new brochure and website revisions.
Corporate Membership provides new opportunities for the Club as well as the wider community. Corporate members, like individuals, will have full access to Rotary programs This includes professional development, providing opportunities to develop and learn new skills and experience through assisting with activities within the Club.
Corporate Membership will be officially launched in early 2012 and will be available to businesses and not-for-profit associations.
