2054 : Interesting facts from the 2011-2012 Rotary International Survey
- Interesting facts from the 2011-2012 Rotary International Survey
Why do Rotarians and Rotaractors join Rotary? Why do they stay? According to the research, the top two reasons are (1) local community service and (2) friendship and fellowship. Further, these are the top two reasons cited by every age group.
The vast majority (90%) of district leaders (governors, committee chairs, and so forth) from nonpilot districts say they support the Future Vision Plan.
Strategic plans make a difference. Compared with clubs that don't have strategic plans, clubs with strategic plans are more likely to report significant improvement in the past three years in recruiting and retaining members, using social media, and maintaining a positive public image.
New Generations participants are very interested in joining Rotary in the future. They say so at a rate of 80%!
Clubs that are participating in the 2011-14 pilot programs (Associate Membership, Corporate Membership, Innovation and Flexibility, and Satellite Club) had greater overall membership growth in 2011-12 than they did the year before the pilot, 2010-11. Their growth was also far above RI's 2011-12 overall membership growth rate.
