Dear Rotarians,

As most of you know, Mike Riley of Riley Research Associates and fellow Rotarian, conducted a club-wide survey in May. One of the insights that came from this survey is that our members are interested in more service projects throughout the year. Because of this, President Gretchen Walker and President Elect-Nominee Terry Goldman, who is coordinating our membership efforts this year, created a plan for our service committees to highlight the work they do in the community and to provide more service opportunities for the club. You may have already noticed this change through presentations at Tuesday meetings or through additional service projects advertised to the club. Keep an eye and ear out for these projects as they arise; those of you who expressed an interest in more hands-on service work, this is for you!

Thank you for your great feedback and for helping the leadership develop new goals and programs to meet your needs.

Corinn deTorres
Executive Director
Rotary Club of Portland
