Of the thousands of Rotary clubs in the world today, Seattle was the fourth club established in 1909. It’s a legacy that our business and community leaders take seriously, gathering weekly to manifest the Rotarian ideals of fellowship and Service Above Self. As one of the world’s largest and most inclusive Rotary clubs, we can and do make big things happen in our local and global communities. 

Over the decades, the Rotary Club of Seattle has provided a forum for prominent people from business, civic, and academia in the United States and around the world.  The best way to learn more about our club and the work we do is to experience this first hand. If you would like to attend a lunch meeting and learn more about Seattle 4, please contact Club Manager, Caroline Bobanick at caroline@seattlerotary.org.  We meet every Wednesday at noon and welcome you to join us!

In Search of Truth: Will Ludlam, Edelman Trust Barometer

Globally, nearly seven in 10 respondents among the general population worry about fake news or false information being used as a weapon, and 59 percent say it’s getting harder to tell if a piece of news was produced by a respected media organization.

This is just one of the fascinating discoveries in the 2018 Edelman Trust Barometer, a global measure of trust in government, business, NGOs, and media.  The Barometer is showing an increasing polarization of trust throughout the world.  Will Ludlam, head of Edelman’s Pacific Northwest region, will explain how this impacts our personal and professional lives in Seattle and beyond.

Don't miss the Committee Fair before and after the luncheon!

Seattle #4's membership, service, and programs committees will be featured at this week's luncheon. Drop by before or after the program to learn more about each committee's mission, meeting schedule, and how to get involved! 11:30 am-12:15 pm and 1:30 pm-1:45 pm in the foyer of the Hyatt Olive 8
