|Rotarians, Riders, Friends,
Thank you to the leadership of the 17 geographic chapters of the International Fellowship of Motorcycling Rotarians for voting me the opportunity to represent IFMR as president 2015-2018.
The IFMR is one of the largest of the 64 Rotary Fellowships with 2150 members in 29 different countries. We know that many more Rotarian riders are not yet members and our responsibility rests with demonstrating to them the fun, fellowship, skill and knowledge trading and service accomplishments that they would enjoy as full members. And yes, we welcome them on every ride/event that is held.
Membership is open and inviting to riders of every make and model machine. Whether one is an Iron Butt rider doing 1,000+ miles each day or most satisfied with a 200-300 circular route you are welcomed as a member.
Great friendships have developed between riders both within countries and between distant continents; a true Rotary Exchange. Rotary and riding is the glue that molds them together. I have witnessed IFMR to be Rotary’s greatest membership retention tool as it is the very rare rider who drops out.
Service activities are common and encouraged within IFMR, the most popular being raising awareness and funds for polio eradication.
I will be riding with you, preparing information booths at district conferences, President-Elect Training Seminars, Zone Institutes and the International convention. Join with me during the year but especially in June, Rotary Fellowships Month by inviting riders in your Rotary club and surrounding Rotary clubs to have a ride-in show prior to the scheduled Rotary meeting.
Come ride with me,
Raymond E. Plue
