Every Rotary club, no matter what size, meets once a week. The weekly meeting is an integral part of maintaining contact with other Rotarians, developing professionally, and learning to participate in community service and fellowship projects. The weekly meeting requires the volunteer help from many members.
Members and leaders within Rotary assist in the dissemination of information, upcoming events, and celebrations through the weekly newsletter, the Rotarygram, or through social media and other website mediums.
Each year, the Rotary Club of Long Beach participates with other Rotary clubs in the District’s annual conference. Members participate in the hospitality night, provide speakers and attend workshops. It is also an opportunity to meet and network with Rotarians from various clubs.
Rotarian volunteers run the weekly meetings with opportunities to set up the meeting space, provide musical ambience, greet guests as they arrive, and check-in members and guests.
While the speaker may be the feature of the program, there are crucial components of the business meeting where members can volunteer. These include leading the club with an inspiration, the Pledge of Allegiance, a song, the Four Way Test, or sharing Rotary history.
