Fellow Rotarians,

Our relevance as an organization is directly related to our community involvement. The second object of Rotary pitches us directly to the communities we serve, because that is where Rotary work begins. Each community has its unique needs and concerns, and we have a proven record of addressing them.

When Rotary started on February 23, 1905 on that faithful day in RM 711 of the unity building in downtown Chicago, the basic principle of professional diversity(Classification) was established. Paul Harris-Attorney-AT-Law Silvester Schiele-Coal Dealer Gustavus Loehr-Mining Engineer Hiram Shorey-Merchant Tailor

Rotarians and clubs, should implement strategies in support of

  1. Mentoring young people, help those with special needs, and improve people’s quality of life
  2. Strengthen the emphasis on vocation and classification in new member recruitment and induction
  3. Focus more attention on business networking with integrity as a means of attracting and mentoring the young generation


  • 1.4 billion people, nearly half of them unemployed-live on less than $1.25 a day.

  • LEADERSHIP SKILLS-Education and training


  • Rotarian Action Groups (RAGS)-Leverage their expertise in their particular area of interest to support clubs

Rotarians, let us continue to inspire as we invest in people to create economic improvement in their lives and their communities.
