How do you outsmart your competition? How can you stop wasting money on mindless marketing? Neuromarketing is a scientific approach to understanding consumers’ decision-making. Dr. Terry Wu received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Vanderbilt University. He has a 30-year career in Neuroscience. He started his own marketing firm over 17 years ago, giving his clients a strong competitive edge by applying insights from Neuroscience and Psychology. 
Edina Country Club is open and allowing us to meet in person for our first 2020-2021 Rotary year meeting on Thursday, July 9. REGISTRATION and MASKS ARE REQUIRED. Please register HERE if you plan on attending in-person and will be having lunch with us. Doors open at 12:15 p.m.  Register HERE is you would like to attend via ZOOM beginning at 12:30 p.m.
As we plan to meet live during these very unpredictable times, we need to adhere to guidelines established by the Edina Country Club, the city of Edina and our Governor. Your safety is our number one priority and we understand that not everyone will feel comfortable attending our in-person meetings. With this in mind, we will continue to offer the virtual meetings via Zoom for our July/August meetings and extend them for a longer period of time if needed. Advance reservations will be required for both the live and Zoom meeting options.  Click "See More" to review the guidelines.
The Public Image Committee is offering our members women's and men's polo shirts in four colors embroidered with our club logo and a navy one size fits all logo embroidered hat for purchase. The cost is $28 each for the shirts and $13.00 per hat.

Wearing these items during service projects, when attending Rotary sponsored events and while you're out and about helps identify you as a Rotary Club of Edina member. These items also work to open opportunities to start a conversation about Rotary and all the great work we're doing in the community and throughout the world. 

This is a one-time only opportunity to purchase these items. Pre-order and payment via credit card only deadline is July 16, 2020 at midnight. Order button above near Club Headlines.

The Rotary Club of Edina is proud to present the 2020-21 Leadership Series--TEAMWORK session scheduled for July 21 at 6:00 to 7:00 pm.

Saturday, September 26 and Saturday, October 3, 2020
While expected COVID-19 restrictions mean we won’t be together in a ballroom this fall, we want to make sure our Edina Rotary members and their guests can still get together in person— but in smaller groups.
We hope you will consider hosting a small gathering at your home on one of our two “Gala” nights. Read the details "HERE" to see how you can be part of this great adventure.
