I am excited to let you know that I have become a new Rotarian! This doesn’t mean I have given up my Canadian citizenship, or requested a new passport. But I am now a member of an elite, worldwide organization that has the funds, the energy and the connections to make a change on a global scale.
The Rotary motto is “Service Above Self”. I believe this creates a strong, very recognizable difference between Rotary and other networking clubs. The goal in Rotary is not to promote you or your business, per se, but to meet other like-minded, business professionals who want to serve their community and the world. But make no mistake, business does get done. Quietly. Casually. Fairly.
In summary, here’s what excited me about Rotary:
- The opportunity to make new friends with like-minded business professionals
- Becoming involved in local and international projects that stir my soul
- Access to world travel.
