All Around Rotary Podcast Episode 2

There’s no benefit to keeping successful membership development ideas confined to just your club and no two Rotarians know that better than Matt Olson with the Rotary Club of Waukee and Steve Wieneke with the Rotary Club of Ankeny.  They readily share their successes with us during this month’s episode of All-Around Rotary.
Take a listen and let’s Grow Rotary. If you’d like to learn more from either of our guests, contact them via e-mail at: 
Matt Olson – or Steve Wieneke –
Feel free to let us know what you think or ideas on how we can better use this medium to benefit District 6000 and Rotary over all.
Future month podcasts will feature the exciting things happening in clubs around the district, fascinating Rotarians, and Rotary activities around the world. Look for Shawn’s podcast in each edition of your D6000 NEWS monthly.  To be sure you receive it, make certain your computer filters allow rotary emails to reach your inbox.
