During 2013-14, with the help of more than 35 Rotarian presenters, Rotary hosted a webinar series dedicated to the lifecycle of a service project. The overall goal of this series was to help members make lasting improvements in communities around the world through the development of strong service projects. Thank you to the more than 2,400 folks who joined us for these webinars and gave everyone the opportunity to learn from each other and share their own best practices for success.
