Rotary International has slightly more than 1.2 million members, the same number we have cited for the past 4 years. So what is going on? Over the last 4 years (maybe longer) our International membership has hovered around 1.2 million members. We seem to recruit close to 500,000 new members world wide, yet continue to show a static growth figure.
