Final Thoughts 


           Community building is essential to generate and retain membership, but also to help members of non-for-profit organizations relate better to their community in order to feel closer to the causes they fundraise for or volunteer their time to.  I found the recommendations that fall under the umbrella of community building mostely fall between three main categories : relationships amongst club members and their leaders, the task division, and the social responsabilities of both the club and its members towards each other. 



            If followed, these recommendations may re-inforce all four guiding principles of Rotary - the community service, the international service, the vocational service and the fellowship – making stronger, more dedicated clubs.  Then, it would be possible to address other issues that are traditionally the focus of our organizations, such as membership, management and recognition of a liaison with Rotary clubs at a district-wide level.
