What is your club doing to reinvent itself?

The Rotary Club of Stone Mountain in Georgia, USA, was facing a common problem: membership was aging, and the club struggled to attract younger members. When Past President Margie Kersey learned that Rotary had changed membership rules to remove the barriers between e-clubs and regular clubs, they became a hybrid club, preserving in-person meetings while also making them available online. Already, the club is seeing clear results. Read about their success and email us with your own club's innovations.
