Rotary has designated themes for each month to help clubs think about a range of ideas to develop meeting agendas, projects, or public image campaigns. 
For October, our theme is Economic and Community Development – and the month also includes the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty on the 17th and World Polio Day on the 24th of October.  What are you going to do to acknowledge these days?  A speaker?  A relevant TED talk?  Maybe a field trip?  Here are some other ideas about how to celebrate the theme… your club could consider projects such as to:
  • Develop a Micro Credit project – or establish a club Kiva account to support micro businesses
  • Organise an awareness seminar on self-employment at a post-secondary or community organization
  • Organise a trade exhibitions
  • Organise a networking event for new Canadian entrepreneurs
  • Participate in an entrepreneurship development program
  • Organise a consumer forum, or public meeting on a topic relevant to your community
  • Hold a joint meeting with your Chamber of Commerce
