“Creatures of Habit” truly is THE book on understanding the decline in Rotary membership and prescribing tactics that can reverse it.

Mark has written this book as a lesson and a new way forward for Rotary clubs in Australia to grow in membership. He shares many fresh ideas on how we should approach increasing members in our clubs. It’s a collection of his 30 years' combined real life experience in Rotary & Rotaract. This is a must read for Rotary Club Presidents and those aspiring to be Rotary District Leaders in Australia & New Zealand. Mark tackles one of the root causes of membership decrease in Rotary in Australia. He says our clubs have not been relevant to the demands of our fast changing society. Believe me it’s worth the $25 investment. Buy it now.
