Insider Tips for Rotarians

HOW TO INTRODUCE A SPEAKER -- One of the most important jobs for every Rotarian leader, giving a speaker a proper introduction is the most often bungled incident in public speaking. White Plains Member Paul Schwarz gives us this 1-page guideline for how to do it right.

ROBERTS RULES OF ORDER -- Our board meetings can be better run if we follow the rules. It's not that hard to learn and follow Roberts Rules of order, and your meetings will be better.

ROBERTS RULES OF ORDER -- Chart of Motions -- This is an excellent reference chart, a 1-page PDF for those already conversant with Roberts Rules. Main Motions are listed in order of precedence. A motion can be introduced if it is higher on the chart than the pending motion. Incidental Motions have no order of precedence; they arise incidentally and are decided immediately.

Annual Coat & Sweater Drive
Dear Rotarians and friends,

Please support our annual coat and sweater drive and help keep our neighbors warm this winter.

Bring your gently used coats and sweaters to any of our December lunch meetings at the Crowne Plaza hotel (Tuesdays, December 3, 10, 17) between 12 and 1:30 p.m.

All items collected will be distributed to needy individuals through the Salvation Army of White Plains.

If you can't drop off at a lunch meeting, call Libby Hollahan at 761-6259 to arrange pickup/dropoff.

We'll be collecting coats and sweaters until Dec 17th...
Thank you for your support!
