RI Communication to New Members
Launched from 1 July 2021, all new members will receive a series of email messages directly from Rotary International (RI) over the course of their first year of membership, to help introduce them to the broad menu of opportunities to get involved and derive value out of their membership – particularly beyond their own club.
This series of communications from RI is a complement to the processes and activities clubs and districts have in place to help engage new members. 
This campaign is first launching to English-speaking new members, and will then be expanded to other Rotary languages later in the 2021-22 year.
Below is the schedule and content of the new member emails for clubs to align their internal practises.
