As you probably may know by now, I am once again working with David Forward on what will be my new book on Rotary. In this second book I will be trying to give ideas on how clubs can effectively have good membership retention as well as on different methods that clubs have found to reenergize themselves. Therefore, I am requesting that you send me a comment on these two subjects so as to include your own experiences and ideas both in my upcoming book and on my personal website at www.frankdevlyn.org where others have already posted their comments.
I will appreciate it if you could take the time to share your views which Iím sure will be of benefit to the world of Rotary.
Un abrazo from your amigo in Mťxico City.

Trustee, The Rotary Foundation
With a second book in the works, Frank may become Rotaryís second most prolific book writer after Paul Harris.
