Recruiting New Members
In just over a year, a Rotary Club in Minnesota brought in 31 new members, 11 of them women and eight of them under 40 years old.  How did they do it?  This week and in following weeks, we will present the club’s 10 Tips for recruiting new members.

Tip #2
Keep a list of potential recruits. It doesn’t matter if it’s a paper list or if it’s kept on the desktop of your computer – it just makes you think about those people and others that may be a fit for your club.
Check next week for your next Tip!
