RI President Ian Riseley supports giving clubs more flexibility in membership and meetings. "If you want to meet every week, and it suits your club, that's great. But there are people who can't do that, for whatever reason. To me, the flexibility is really important." (excerpt from the article in July 2017 Rotarian)

Program for June 25 2018
Speaker: Heather Wuebben, HR Manager, Timken Drives
Topic: Getting to Yes
Negotiation can either build trust and understanding with a positive relationship established at the end, or lead to frustration or dissatisfaction. The authors of the book Getting to Yes explore how the relationship between parties tends to become entangled with the problem.  This philosophy can apply to the workplace and any group dynamic.  Come hear the speaker to learn more!
