9 To engage a member means more than just occupying them or keeping them busy. To engage a Rotary member means to challenge them personally, professionally, and civically to be involved and committed to the club’s mission and activities. Engagement fosters real interest in what the club is doing. Engagement increases bonding between members. Engagement is important to the club and Rotary because engaged members feel their investment in time and money are valued, appreciated, and make a difference.
