Club Service Committee

(Always check the District Directory before arranging dates for activities)
For answers to most Rotary questions go to, the District Directory, the Manual of Procedures or the District Chairman of that particular activity.

While different members perform the various tasks the Director is responsible. Club Service is the day-to-day running of the Club. It has been referred to as the “heart beat or soul of the Club.” The Club Service Director is the “KEEPER OF THE HOUSE.”

It has often been said, that if the Club Service Director does his/her job diligently, the Club will have a healthy foundation for a successful Rotary year.

*Allocation of duties at the weekly meetings. This Director is the convenor of the meeting - confer with the venue. Arrange raffles & prizes. Generally check that those allocated duties are doing their job)
