Annual Club Visit

A group of West Rotary Club members met with trained District Team to work through a Visioning process for the club in 2021.  Below is a summary of the outcome of 2021 Visioning for the Omaha West Rotary Club.
We are a club offering Fellowship and Fun for 150 “Actively Involve” members.  We are a welcoming club providing thorough and on-going new member orientation. We are known for our outstanding programs and service projects that are creating positive media coverage several times a year. The club members have opportunities to network with fellow members with high impact meetings even social events at our member’s businesses. Our club provides timely communications to our members utilizing many forms of communications, no matter if you want email, social networks or smoke signals…you are included.

We recognize we must spread the message of Rotary and create long term relationships by supporting the international exchange of students and embracing RYLA.

Our club fully leverages the opportunity for funding from District and International grants by having 1-2 large impact annual projects involving partners when appropriate. We realize we need funding for this good work that we do and we have inclusive fundraising events such as a mega tasting event with beer, wine, and whiskey. Our club has a priority to our community by supporting local issues. We also assure we can have a worthwhile impact with the donations to the Rotary International Foundation and are proud that every member donates every year with an understanding that 50% of that comes back to our district through grants. We fully communicate the good work we are doing with meetings focused on our projects with full disclosure of our funds and activities.

Omaha West Rotary and Omaha Downtown Rotary are working together on a Joint District Grant - 'Victory Over Violence'. The grant funds will be used to create an information center (website and landing pages) for people who need to know more about sexual and domestic abuse in the greater Omaha area. Last year the WCA delivered over 22,000 services related to domestic abuse.  
A launch party is planned to celebrate the 'Victory Over Violence' and to unveil eight new landing pages for the WCA. The pages will impact thousands of individuals searching for information about physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Click the following link for information about the launch party event.  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/launch-party-for-wca-tickets-26950286031?utm_source=eb_email&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=order_confirmation_email&utm_term=eventname&ref=eemailordconf

The West Rotary Board approved a Corporate & Family Membership program.  An Active Primary club member can propose a qualified family member or a qualified business co-worker for membership.  The membership proposal has information in regard to membership qualifications on the form. The new corporate or family member joining will pay dues of $125 with no admission fee. If the primary member resigns one of the corporate or family members will become the primary member and  pay the appropriate primary membership fee.  The reduced dues rate of $125.00 will be effective the first three years of membership. Click here to see the membership proposal form and flyer for the new program.  The information can also be found on the  left side of the club website homepage under Site Pages/Joining Rotary.  Members, if you have a qualified family member or co-worker please invite them to Rotary for lunch so they can consider joining West Rotary.
