Membership figures are like a barometer. They help us feel out the ‘atmospheric pressure’ and forecast the ‘weather’. They help us navigate where we want to go.
Unfortunately, the positive growth we saw in the lead up to the new calendar year was lost in anticipation of the January invoice. This is the usual trend we see at the end of December and June. The Zone sits at -123 below the 1 July 2021 figure.
Not only do we see members terminate their membership in December/June but we also see clubs wind up. Even though we have chartered 5 new Rotary clubs this Rotary year, we have terminated 13 to give us a net loss of 8.
Still at the top of the leader board is D9620 with +56 members, D9455 is in second with +23 and D9650 climbs up to third with +22. Both D9620 and D9650 have chartered new clubs this year.
Special mention to D9910, who is the only district in New Zealand with positive growth at +12, who also has the highest retention rate in the Zone (95.69%) and 100% of clubs with reported membership goals.
Positive news is that the Zone average for clubs setting membership goals continues to push higher from 38.39% now to 40.42%
