  Rotarian Okaro said this during their Rotary Youth Leadership Academy (RYLA), held at Axari Hotel and Suites Calabar, Cross River State, which kicked off with District Expectations among Rotarians, followed by other presentations in order to enlighten Rotarians more on membership growth, public image, and women in Rotary.

  Rotarian Okaro further stated that the district championed for the establishment of signature projects to market Rotary such as the re-usable sanitary pad production, and establishment of bill boards, tagged  ‘People of Action’ in various parts of the district.

  Some of the presentations on public image in terms of marketing strategy include using branding; boosting one’s online presence; best practices in project reporting, using Rotary brand; meeting Rotary obligations and staying in Rotary.
