Red to Blue Badge Steps
 
Work with your mentor to set up what you need to complete.  You also have a worksheet in your welcome packet.
 
  1. Complete your profile information on the club web site.  This is an easy way to tell the club about yourself.  Log in to www.westurotary.org.  In the upper right corner is the sign in.  Like all websites, if you have never signed in you need to start with NEW USER.  Enter your last name and email address and your username and a temporary password will be sent to you.   Complete your login.
 
When you sign in you will be at a screen that says ADMINISTRATION. Under MY CLUBRUNNER is all the links that you have access to and the first one is EDIT MY PROFILE. Click on it and here is everything about you. Please edit and complete your details. There are other individual tabs you can open. You can change your assigned username and create your own password under the settings tab. Please upload a picture of yourself as well.
 
Don’t forget to SAVE your edits.
If you are having problems, please reach out to your mentor for assistance.
 
  1. Read the Club Constitution and Bylaws.  Dry and boring, yes, but necessary.  These tell you how the Club is organized and how it is supposed to operate.  To find these documents, go back to your ADMINISTRATION page, and under EDIT MY PROFILE, look for the link to VIEW CLUB DOCUMENTS.  This link opens to PRIVATE DOCUMENTS.  There is a SEARCH box.  Type in a few words and your document will come up.
 
  1. Attend a meeting of the Club’s Board of Directors.  Really get to know what is happening in the club by sitting in on a Board of Directors meeting.  The Board meets every second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 am at the same place regular club meetings are held.  You’ll know better what’s going on if you’ve reviewed the constitution and bylaws beforehand.
 
  1. Serve as a greeter at three club meetings.  Greeters should arrive by around 7:00 am.  There is a “Greeter” badge that you should pick up on your way in.  Get to know folks and introduce yourself.  Part of greeter duty also includes conducting the pledge of allegiance or the invocation.  You are expected to do at least one of each.
 
  1. Give a vocational talk at a regular club meeting.  In 3 to 5 minutes, tell the club about yourself, and your vocation and how you got there.   Set up your presentation time with your mentor so the club president can get you on the agenda.
 
  1. Complete interests and skills survey.  Your experience in Rotary is largely what you make of it, so we want to help you make the best of it.  Tells us what you like, what you’re good at, what your gifts are.  Use that CLUB DOCUMENTS SEACH tool.  Turn in to your mentor.
 
  1. Secretary duty.  This is another great way to get to know folks in the Club.  Help the secretary check people in, which will help immensely in remembering their names.  Folks start showing up around 7:00 am, so you should, too. Have your mentor coordinate with the club secretary for at least three sit-ins.  Welcome visitors and assist with collecting payment for breakfast.  Breakfast is free for the first-time visitor but repeat and visiting Rotarians are required to pay.
 
  1. Visit another Rotary club with your mentor or another member.  Rotary is much, much more than the West U Rotary Club (though we think we’re the best).  To really experience Rotary requires that you step outside the comfort of the local club and meet some other folks.  Arrange a time with your mentor or another member to visit another club and expand your network.  Use the Rotary International CLUB FINDER www.rotary.org to see what clubs are meeting where and when.  Or, you can use the map of clubs on www.rotary5890.org.  Look for the column called DISTRICT INFO.
 
 
  1. Learn about Rotary. Learn the basics of Rotary International.  Rotary has a large structure, long history, rich tradition and a great many projects around the world, so there’s a lot to learn.  No one expects you to know everything after reading some websites and watching a few videos.  So, the best way to learn about Rotary is to ASK QUESTIONS!  We’re a friendly bunch, so ask anyone; they would be happy to help you.  www.rotary.org; www.rotary5890.org; and www.westurotary.org.
