Marketing: Club Marketing

Rotary Awareness Function: Cocktail Party 19 July 2005

To avoid putting guests on their back foot by calling it a ‘Prospective Members Night’, the Rotary Club of Ku-ring-gai took a different approach. Local businesses were invited to a Cocktail Party to “Celebrate 100 years of Rotary service to the community”. It was held at a different venue (Lifeline, Gordon) from the normal meeting venue and was not conducted as a rotary meeting. Invitations offered the opportunity to relax in the company of other local businessmen and women and to see a short presentation on projects and donations made in our community and overseas by their local rotary club.

(NOTE. About 20 local business people attended, mostly real estate agents. It resulted in about one new member.)
