As Rotarian’s we meet and when we do we use a venue. Some Rotarian’s have met in the same venue for years. Ask yourself how often you think about the relationship with the venue?
During my travels i ask venues what they know about Rotary and the Rotarians that they see. The usual response (over 95%) is they are a social, friendly group that meet for breakfast, lunch , dinner. I ask them have they been invited as an organisation to join them for a meeting or join in in an activity the answer is “No”.
A good relationship builds bridges that brings with it, Improved public Image for both parties and Potential Individual or Corporate membership. By building the relationship we can make them aware of true Rotary, the Service we provide to our community. Plus .oint projects are a great opportunity for the venue to Corporate Social Responsibility.
Building a relationship with our venues is critical if we don’t we are missing many opportunities that provide a Win-Win situation. So when you next attend a meeting take 5 minutes to tell your Rotary story to your venue and start building the relationship …
