Engage Rotary, Change Lives
“If we really want to take Rotary service forward, then we must make sure that every single Rotarian has the same feeling about Rotary that each one of us here has today,” RI President-elect Ron D. Burton told incoming district governors in his speech unveiling the 2013-14 Rotary theme — Engage Rotary, Change Lives — at the International Assembly in January.
“We need to make sure that every Rotarian has a meaningful role to play, that they’re all making a contribution, and that their contribution is valued.”
Burton applied that lesson also to membership development, which he insisted is the responsibility of every Rotarian. He told the audience that although he had been an active member of the Key Club, a youth program of Kiwanis
International, he went on to join Rotary simply because the Rotary Club of Norman, Oklahoma, USA, invited him to.
