How to Introduce a Guest at a Bellevue Rotary Meeting
From the BRC Membership Committee
Thanks to all who bring guests to meetings. That benefits the club by spreading the word about Rotary in general, as well as the many avenues for service BRC provides.
If you invite someone you think is a potential member, it is requested that you NOT mention that in your introduction. This has been a long-standing protocol that has both Rotary’s and the guest’s best interests in mind. For example: it’s possible that a classification is already filled.
It is proper to say something about your guests, how you know them, or what they do. If you wish to clearly signal that they are a potential member, at least on their second visit, it suffices to give their name, occupation, and a mention that this is their second visit.
Again, thanks to all for spreading the good word about Rotary, and for your efforts to keep the experience positive for all.
