As the year draws to a close, we recap our top five stories of the year (based on number of views):

  • You might think Michael Bucca, a 32-year-old member of a Rotary Club in New Jersey, might try and modernize his club’s way of doing things. But Bucca shares why he feels Rotary’s trademark practice of drawing professionals together for face to face meetings has much to offer younger perople. Read What 30-Somethings need to know about Rotary.
  • How did your club celebration Rotary’s anniversary on 23 February? More than 25 clubs shared images of their celebration. See the slideshow.
  • The Council on Legislation in April passed progressive new measures that allow clubs greater flexibility in tailoring their structure to meet the needs of their members. Read General Secretary John Hewko’s blog post on What defines a Rotary club.
  • Evan Burrell, a frequent blog contributor and member of the Rotary Club of Turramura, New South Wales, Australia, muses on how clubs can reach young professionals. It may seem like young members are as elusive to catch as Pokémon, Burrell writes, but with the right strategy and awareness, it’s not that difficult at all. Discover his six tips in Where are all the young members?
  • One of the changes allowed by the Council is for members of Rotaract to become a member of Rotary at the same time. Read about Alexandria Ritchie’s experience.
