District 6440 News
Registration is open for the April 20, 2024 Joint District Conference with Districts 6440 and 6450, the first District Conference to be held at Rotary International Headquarters. Sign up here.  (Registration is going through District 6450;  register as a "Guest")
District 6440 has the second largest Rotary Youth Leadership Awards - or RYLA - program in the United States, and that's because it changes the lives of the high school students that attend.  The outstanding RYLA team led by Chair Sean Nelson delivers a program that, over a weekend, inspires and develops the participants, with lasting impact. 
There will be two RYLA sessions in 2023-24: March 7-10 and April 4-7, 2024.  Registration is open to those who have displayed leadership skills or potential.  The application and information are available here. 
We hope every Club in the District will identify and sponsor RYLA participants.  You won't regret it!
District 6440 is renewing the very popular Public Image Grant Program for 2023-2024 to spur new marketing materials and spread the great Rotary name and logo.  About half of all clubs received grants last year and we hope more will now.
The Grant Program provides matching grants (up to $500 per club) for APPROVED new brochures, road signs, banners, inflatable signs, logo wear, Facebook/newspaper advertising, community fair signage and much more.  New this year is a reward for approved Membership Materials (half of what you spend, up to $650). See details on the grant application form. We want new positive marketing materials that bolster Rotary visibility in each community.
These new Rotary marketing materials can help your club gain positive visibility, recruit new members (a big District priority), strengthen your image and enhance community service projects. And our District could reduce your cost.
