I am pleased to share that Ruth Petermann will be joining Rotary Club of St. Paul as our new Director of Membership.  Her first day will be October 4.  Ruth comes to Club #10 with deep Rotary experience, including serving as President for Hudson Daybreak Rotary during the 2020-2021 year where she helped the club realize a net increase in membership, even during COVID when many clubs saw decreases in membership.  Ruth has a diverse professional background including serving as publisher for a number of magazines, Development Director for Christian Life Ministries, and Senior Account Executive for the Builders Association of the Twin Cities. Ruth shares her free time with her twin grandsons and cares for her younger brother. She also enjoys running, biking and walking. 

In her role as Director of Membership for Club #10 Ruth will create and implement plans which increase membership and build member satisfaction, engagement and retention. She will work closely with the President and Chair of the Membership and Club Experience Team. 

Thanks to the search committee which consisted of Todd Nicholson, Michael-jon Pease, David Dominick, Laura Nichols-Endres, Ken Crabb, Ken Schaefer and Jason Bradshaw. 

Ruth will be personally introduced at an upcoming noon and 5:01 meetings.  Please join me in welcoming Ruth.
