A new program aims to help us reach Rotary International President Gary C.K. Huang’s goal of increasing membership by 1.3 million this year. How? The program offers recognition points to Rotarians who recruit new members.


The following incentives are available for Rotarians who recruit new members as of Sept. 1:

  • 100 recognition points for any new member.
  • 125 recognition points for any new female member.
  • 150 recognition points for any member 40 or younger.

Receiving the points requires the club to send the following information to Past District Governor John Henson:

1. Name, address, birthdate and date of induction to our club of new member. 

2. Name and RI number of current member who proposed the new member as well as name of our club. If you don't know it, the RI number can be found on the front of The Rotarian Magazine. 

"I hope this will encourage your members to seek out and attract those new members that will join us in making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate," Henson said.

Huang has said his aim of increasing membership is based on a simple fact: "The more members we have, the more people we can help. A stronger membership base will result in stronger communities."

Help make your community stronger by recruiting new members for our club!
