How Rotary 101 Operates

Engage your Rotary members to become Rotarians

Rotary 101 is a program that is based on the the book, “A Century of Service,” written by David C. Forward. It combines these readings with interesting information that your past presidents compile about each individual club, its history, traditions, and special place in the community.

The vision is to enhance the knowledge of each Rotary member so he or she will:
  • Better understand what it means to be a Rotarian
  • Be more excited about the values and worthiness of Rotary International

What is Rotary 101?

It’s a year-long program; each week covers two of the 22 chapters of the book. The program culminates in a graduation ceremony where the grads testify about their experience in the program and what they learned that will make them a Super Rotarian. This makes recruiting the next class a “no-brainer.”

Our club holds one presentation each month. We offer the same program one-half hour before and one-half hour after the general meeting each month. Class members come at the time that is most convenient for them that month.

Presenters are past presidents or and other Rotarians who are leaders in the community. They need only to make certain they are familiar with the two chapters they will present, compile important information that relates about their club and have reviewed the lesson plan for those chapters.
