What excites you about Rotary?

Recently, Rotarians from all corners of the world gathered in Chicago to represent their districts and consider changes to the policies that govern Rotary International and its member clubs. The Council on Legislation also has a social dimension ─ connecting Rotarians and giving them opportunities to make friends, share ideas, and gain a better understanding of different perspectives.

Among other things, the Council showcases the passion many Rotarians have for their clubs and for Rotary. We took the opportunity to ask a few of the representatives why they joined Rotary, and what excites them about being a Rotarian. The video above is a sampling of their responses.

Tell us what excites you about Rotary in the comments section below.
