Rotary in Anytown USA

As you know, Rotary International has recently begun to encourage Rotary Districts to explore opportunities for offering
new club models beyond the traditional Rotary Club (see attached) in order to ensure that our organization may continue
to grow and thrive. No two clubs are the same, but all clubs share similar values and a passion for service. It is in this
context that District 7210 is pleased to announce the formation of the Passport Club of District 7210.
The founding principle of the Passport Club is to allow Rotary to fit your life. Our Passport Club will appeal to local
people who want to make a difference in their community in a way that fits within their available time, talent and
finances, while balancing their family, work and life commitments. To do this, our Passport Club will hold fewer
meetings, meeting “in-person” only once each quarter. Instead of weekly meetings, members are encouraged to engage
in frequent humanitarian service - however that works best for them. The members of the Passport club determine the
specifics of how the club operates.
August is Membership and New Club Development Month. This is the perfect time to celebrate your club’s members and consider the many options available for strengthening your membership. The following ideas can get you started:

Take advantage of the resources and activities available through your club, district, and Rotary International to make your experience with Rotary both rewarding and fun.
