District Membership Committee
By Committee Chair PDG/CP Eric Chin, RC of HK North Point & Committee member PP Eliza Fan, RC of Bayview Sunshine HK
More is Always Better with Membership! This is true for Rotary Clubs, for Areas and for Districts! We, as Rotarians want more people to join because we are proud with what we are contributing to the World and the Community therefore we want more people to share our commitment and the joy of serving. D3450 and its District Membership Committee are committed to assist every Rotarian to help spread the good news, to invite more people to join Rotary, and to help build our community a better place to live.
August is EOBO (Each One Bring One) Month, as such we have achieved growth in membership as follows:
Total 63 new members have been inducted in D3450, 19 New Members (Area 9, 2 new members, Area 10, 17 new members) and 44 new members from the remaining Areas. There is an addition of 6 new Rotaractors in August too! Presidents and Club Secretaries are reminded to register new members and to guide them to register with My Rotary prior to the application of ‘new member incentives’ with the District Membership Committee.

Rotary International launches new membership recognition program:
To recognize those who have demonstrated extraordinary commitment and success in growing our membership, we have launched a new recognition program. The Membership Society for New Member Sponsors is a virtual gallery for those members who have sponsored 25 or more new members. Members can achieve different tiers of recognition as they continue to sponsor more members.
The recognition levels are:
Bronze Level: Sponsored 25-29 members
Silver Level: Sponsored 30-49 members
Gold Level: Sponsored 50-74 members
Platinum Level: Sponsored 75+ members
To be included in the Membership Society, an individual has to have sponsored 25 or more new members, and have reported those sponsorships to Rotary. New member sponsorship can only be between active members in the same club, and does not include charter members of a new club.
Please contact District Membership Committee Vice Chair Elsa Wong, Rotary Club of Hong Kong North Point (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any inquiry.
