ATTENDANCE & PARTICIPATION INFORMATION
Rotary is built upon fellowship and friendship. The strength of Rotary lies in the individual members. Each member brings a unique contribution of vocational and community experience to each meeting. Our Club is stronger because of your attendance and participation. Your attendance at our Club’s meeting is important.
It is understood that among busy people an occasional problem of attendance will arise. When a member misses a meeting, he or she is privileged to “make up” at another Rotary Club. There are Rotary Clubs in almost every community in the Bay Area and over 200 in Northern California. There are “locator” apps available for Android and Apple devices. This will allow you to easily find a nearby club. There are even online meetings that serve as make ups. The first and one of the best known is Rotary EClubOne at http://rotaryeclubone.org .
Needless to say, each make up affords the Rotarian a splendid opportunity to broaden his or her acquaintances, and to bring back to his or her Club, information or ideas that can improve his or her Club’s operations and programs.
