During this pandemic, your club has been flexible and innovative in finding ways to meet and participate in service virtually for quite some time now. For the second half of the Rotary year, your club president wishes to continue to innovate and has tasked the club service projects committee, which you chair, with creating a new participatory service opportunity each month for club members to join either virtually or in-person if it is safe to do so. You think this is an important goal to strive for and have ideas about virtual volunteering opportunities and ways to first assess the community’s needs through virtual surveying. However, there is reluctance among your fellow committee members, who are feeling fatigued by change and wish to wait until after the pandemic has ended to work on the objectives of creating new engagement and volunteerism opportunities for existing and prospective club members to grow participation and make a greater impact.
