Dear Rotarians: 
During this time of COVID 19 and the impact it has had on our families,
our businesses and our selves, Rotary has heard a call for support.
Many of our fellow Rotarians have suffered job and business loss,
experienced emotional impact and are searching for a new direction.
We hear you! 
I introduce you to The Rotary Network.

This is a platform for Rotarians to:
  • find jobs posted by Rotarians
  • access career and personal counseling from Rotarians
  • networking for businesses and business people, beginning with our Rotary Means Business Fellowship (more below)
  • gain financial insights to grow your business.
Take a minute and go here to checkout this new program's website. 
And there may be questions - if so, go here to ask...we will get back ASAP. 
I have to thank the Rotary Network committee led by
Rotary One's past president Marshall Schmitt for bringing this idea to life.  
We are truly taking Rotary back to its roots!.
