Doug: When people ask what’s in it for me? Focus is on connection, WE Rotary brought in people from all over the world, common values, not transactional, we have these values, if that is attractive to you then this is for you,
Kat Haber
Ray: Peace-building club, misunderstanding what a modern Club is, turnoff for young people, not about biz deals of the 50’s, falls between different interests, want a sense of connection, young do not need connection like Ray, young people
Kat Haber
Doug: all generations go through the time of wanting to have relationships, if known early on then so much better down the line,
Kat Haber
Elsa: If someone is already involved through Rotaract or Change students, they are not invited, 8 years of Rotaract before Elsa was invited, what is an ideal candidate to invite to our club, influence in society, ability to contribute to share influence and invite more people, include people who are not yet at pinnacle, Rotary is the perfect solution for that age group, use energy in productive way, have outlet for their service, alone and WE Rotary could be a got to organization, get message out there, increase awareness in that age group, private, target group for us is global, 25-35 year old gather differently, 1. not invited 2. fees are high for young family, needs to change, WE Rotary gave Elsa a break to join us, misses Pledge the traditional parts, have learned way more from this club, global perspective, ideas for global peace, does local clubs for traditional parts and has international network through WE Rotary, willing and open to accept young new members, share responsibilities,
