RMB District 6970 is a group of Northeast Florida Rotarians and Professional Rotaractors networking with other Rotarians. We share a common belief that we should honor the roots of our great worldwide organization and support one another in business guided by the core principles of Rotary. RMB provides a structure to bring business relationships back into Rotary in a way that supplements rather than competes with the service and fellowship aspects of our clubs. When we are able to provide opportunities to strengthen the businesses represented in Rotary, our members will be stronger, thus creating stronger clubs. In addition, we encourage Rotarians to bring guest to these meetings, which WILL increase the membership of your individual clubs.
We have hosted 3 very successful RMB District events this Rotary year with our next event at the District Conference on May 17th in Daytona! Information on these events is distributed via the Club Presidents or the clubs’ RMB ambassadors.
RMB provides a structure to bring business relationships back into Rotary in a way that supplements rather than competes with the service and fellowship aspects of Rotary.
When we are able to provide opportunities to strengthen the businesses represented at Rotary, our members will be stronger creating stronger clubs.
Stronger clubs automatically mean Rotary itself is stronger, The Rotary Foundation is stronger, and therefore we are able to do more to make our communities stronger.

Rotary Means Business District 6970
RMB encourages Rotarians to support the success of other Rotarians by doing business with their fellow Rotarians and by referring others to them.
When District 6970 reached out to other Rotarians, we discovered everyone shared the desire to have a method to connect with business professionals within the district.
Register with us so we can keep you informed of our events.

Each of the five regions have an evening cocktail/social/networking/RMB meeting on a regular basis. These events rotate among Rotary member businesses.
