ImageCheryl, Jo and Eleanor headed over to the School Board Office in Terrace to learn some great Membership Building Ideas presented by our District 5040 Membership Chair, Hans Doge.  Particularly memorable was a video showing young new Rotarians and their reasons for being Rotarians.  And then there was a thought from Hans.   Want a novel idea to open the door when approaching a person about Rotary?  Take along a Rotarian magazine with your Rotary business card attached.  I'm a Rotarian and I think you would enjoy our organization.  I'm leaving this with you so you can check us out.  The key is to go back again in a weeks time, and talk Rotary up, then again a week later to  invite them to a meeting.  Hans says he has seen more than one businessperson join Rotary after this approach. 

Lunch was catered by Linda, the gal who also takes care of all the food for our Rylarians at Lakelse.  Abolutely great!


Another well worth thinking about approach was that of networking - the what's in it for you in your business life?  We did a lot of sharing of ideas, were challenged by thought provoking questions, brainstormed with our colleagues from the Terrace and Smithers clubs, and came away with genuine vibrant energy for Rotary.
