From ancient times the torch bearers have been the first on the paths of discovery, exploration and battle, illuminating the way for those who follow. Rotarians, commit to be a torch bearer who will invite, unite and ignite new members whose fire and energy will add to ours to help overcome the darkness of poverty, illiteracy, hunger and disease.

Our District 5450 launched the IGNITE membership initiative on August 1, 2012 at the Commerce City Rotary Club. The District Membership Team (DMT) will be working with club membership chairs and club leaders to roll out this new program and deploy to all clubs.

Each club in D5450 will strive to attain the designation of Premier Club where they will be receiving the Governor's Membership Citation. The designation is a cherry on top. The journey to surpass the minimum requirements of this program and continue beyond will be the goal of each club.
