August is membership month and as we focus our activities on growth and engagement it is also important to reflect on our roles as individuals. From our personal efforts, are we making our clubs meet the Rotary promise of joining leaders to exchange ideas and take action? Our growth depends on the little things that individual members do everyday to enhance the experience of old and new members.
This month we continue our journey to discover the secrets of growing and maintaining large clubs as we interview other presidents of the Big 5 Rotary clubs in our district. We are uploading these articles weekly which you will find both informative and entertaining.
John Kamau, the content manager of Nation Media Group, and a Past President of the Rotary Club of Thika analyzes a new research report on the attendance of the district conferences. This study was conducted by the District Conference 2020 team in order to uncover preferences that will guide the development of a world-class event next year.
To meet our goals of delivering non-linear content, the District Magazine Team has recruited iClub Reporters from over 50 Rotary clubs in our district who are having a field day uploading stories from their clubs and their neighbourhoods. We still need more stories from Ethiopia, South Sudan and the upcountry regions in Kenya, and thus we are appealing to iClub Reporters in those areas to login and upload their wonderful stories.
Carole Kimutai, Managing Editor of Standard Digital Edition and a Past President of the coolest club in town, Rotary Club of Nairobi East, has shared an excellent guide to any Rotarian that wants to write stories with impact. Read, learn and apply.
