One Rotary Summits 2019-20


Connected by Our Rotary Stories

A One Rotary Summit (ORS) is all about how Membership, Public Image, and Humanitarian through The Rotary Foundation are connected in Rotary. There is a slide in the ORS slide set (Document 8) that illustrates these relationships.
This year’s ORS theme is Connected by Our Rotary Stories. Rotarians and Rotaractors all have personal and club stories to tell.  This ORS will help attendees better understand how to tell those stories and why telling stories is so important. 
Those attending the ORS will jointly discover and develop creative ways to achieve and sustain membership growth and retention, to increase Rotary Foundation giving and project engagement, and to gain enhanced public image in their communities.
