There are 1.2 million rotarians in the world - leaders, specialists, young, old, women, men. With the words of Jennifer Jones, RI director: "We are leaders by the way we think, not necessarily by our title. That’s a pretty big shift in thinking in how we have gone historically in the past. But I think it is a major shift because the group is really serious about bringing younger members into our organization. They’re not in the senior positions in their organizations in this point in time, but are they leaders? Absolutely.”


Hidden hours?

Let's collect together all the hours made for Rotary - may they be minutes for example for the Facebook posting or hours planning club festivities/planning or participating in projects or for example arranging open event for the public.

We do a lot of work for common good and cannot always get an attendance certificate, so let's show the hard work to everyone (link on the district's website). Please list the time in district's time bank that you have used for the Rotarywork! If you do not want to use your own name (you can see the listing after filling the form), please use the club name. The club name is the only required information on the form.

Thank you in advance for being part of this!
