Rotary E-Club of Pago Bay Guam
July 4, 2014 Meeting
It is highly important that every Rotarian understand how they can be engaged in Rotary, inspired by Rotary and empowered by Rotary to positively change lives through our service activities. As a new club, it is important that we create the stories that will define the history of our club. Our strategic priorities include 1) growing and strengthening our Club; 2) increase humanitarian service; and 3) enhance public image and awareness.
Our club has formed the following Committees that will lead a number of projects to serve our community in line with our strategic priorities:
1.     Membership: this committee is tasked with recruitment, retention, orientation & education and diversity activities. Through this committee we can expect outcomes that will impact our strategic priority 1.
2.     Public Relations: this committee is tasked with media relations, advertising & marketing, as well as web & social media activities. Through the work of this committee we can expect outcomes that will impact strategic priority 3
3.     Vocational and New Generations Projects: this committee is tasked with vocational and new generations activities. We can anticipate outcomes of this committee to impact strategic priority 2.
4.     International and Community Projects: this committee is tasked with international and community project activities. We can anticipate outcomes of this committee to impact strategic priorities 2 and 3.
5.     Fundraising: this committee is tasked with developing fundraising events to raise funds for club projects (i.e., charity dinners, walkathons, online auctions, etc).  This committee will support all three strategic priorities.
Please consider joining one or more of these committees as part of your service contribution. Please contact the following Committee leaders to express your membership interest. The Committee Directors should be in touch with you shortly. You may also send them a message via our E-Club website Email Services under the Communications tab.
