Membership growth is a priority for Rotary International and District 5580. New members bring vitality, new ideas, and new energy to our Clubs. District 5580 and our new District Governor Kay Biga wants to encourage membership growth this year by providing an incentive to new members for joining. The incentive is the elimination of the annual $66 District dues in the new member's first year.
The process involves sending District Treasurer Elaine Hansen notice that a new member has joined your Club (include either the new member's membership # or approved application) and she will write a check and send it to your Club. In the new member  recruiting process you should explain that the $66 District dues reduction is a first year incentive to new members.  All clubs are eligible provided they are current on their RI and District Dues and have their club goals posted on Club Central.
