Three priorities:
  1. Challenge each club to increase membership by 2 with gender parity
  2. Identify classifications on website for each member
  3. Increase humanitarian service:
    1. Each member to give $100/yr to the foundation and $100/yr to the Polio Plus campaign. Gates Foundation committed to match dollar $2 for every $1 raised
    2. Each club contribute $1500 towards the Honduras Micro Finance Program. Woodstock Rotary already committed.
