During our meeting Monday March 18, 2019 we expected Chuck Sawicki to provide some insights on mentoring and membership development.  With 54 years of Rotary experience, Chuck did just what we expected.  He shared several stories about effective techniques used by the 14 different Rotary clubs in which he belonged.
 
While he was talking he distributed copies of his book, "On Mentoring" and asked us to look at selected pages in the book that highlighted the stories he was telling us.  He also pointed to a feedback section in the book that validated some of his claims about club growth as well as other community organization growth that resulted from the mentoring activity he prescribed.  A great presentation!
