I belong to one of the local Rotary clubs where I live. And on the basis of what I learn at meetings each week, the club's annual dues are worth many times what I pay. Rotary strives to attract the best and most diverse group of business leaders in the community and, in turn, its members command the respect of the community through the types of service projects that the club performs.
I wouldn't miss my 7 a.m. roll call each Thursday to meet with the members of my club. Besides being treated to interesting speakers from different organizations in town, you get access to the knowledge of virtually every segment of the business world.
