Madison Rotary is inviting business professionals and community leaders who are interested in expanding business opportunities and making a positive difference locally and globally to its “Rotary Means Business” networking socials from 6PM to 7:30PM at Charlie Brown’s Steakhouse, 522 Southern Blvd, Chatham, on the first Thursday of every month.
Attendees will have the opportunity to introduce themselves and their businesses and professions at the social. In addition to making new business connections and expanding their professional networks, attendees will meet service-driven area Rotarians and learn about the competitive advantages of being Rotarians. Attendees are encouraged to bring business cards to exchange. The social will be cash bar and food.
Founded in 1905 as a business networking group, Rotary International is now the world’s most prominent service organization, with 1.2 million members focusing efforts in promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies. The business initiative supplements the service and friendship aspects of Rotary.
“Rotarians are people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures who share a passion for service. Currently, we have over 85 enthusiastic, dedicated and humanitarian service-driven Rotarians in Madison. We network, discuss the needs of our community and take tangible action, while sharing business expertise and enjoying friendship. We are excited to grow our membership through business networking and local service projects, including End Hunger 3.6, Community Shredding, Camp Merry Heart, Gift of Life, and many more,” says Jeannie Tsukamoto, Membership Chair of Rotary District 7470, which consists of 48 area clubs.
Madison Rotary holds weekly breakfast and lunch meetings on Thursdays at 7:47AM to 8:30AM at the Madison Area YMCA, 111 Kings Road in Madison, and 12:15PM to 1:30PM at Rod’s Steakhouse and Seafood Grill in Convent Station, respectively. To accommodate members who are not available to attend meetings during the day, evening meetings are held at 6PM to 7:30PM on the first and third Thursdays every month at this Chatham location.
