Speaker: New Year's Resolution - Stand Up and Be an Ambassador for Rotary

It’s a new year, and here’s something you can resolve to do for your club and for Rotary in 2017.
Think about the last time someone gave you a “word-of-mouth referral” that influenced your decision to do something. Maybe a friend shared a new favorite restaurant over Facebook, or your neighbour recommended a plumber. Or maybe it was that friendly suggestion to come along to a Rotary club meeting that got you involved in Rotary in the first place. Regardless, you probably acted on the referral, in part, because it came from someone you trust!
If you’re passionate about Rotary like I am, I encourage you this year to become an ambassador for your own club — and more importantly for Rotary — by using your “word-of-mouth referral” power. Here are a few things you can do:
Your support as a Rotary ambassador helps your club and the larger organization maximize their reach and increase awareness of the good we are doing in the world! By spreading the word, you may attract participants to things like Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) and Youth Exchange, raise funds for your projects, increase your online presence, and most importantly recruit members into your club. So STAND UP in 2017 and make yourself an ambassador for Rotary.
