Rotarians actually do a great job of recruiting new members each year. The challenge clubs have is retaining members. Statistical data indicates that approximately 50% of new members leave Rotary within the first 12 months of their membership in the service organization. This is an indictment on the way in which we recruit and teach our new members about one of the most significant service organizations in the world.
