Presidents hardly send a good, updated list of their members before we count them. Are they lame or what ? I don’t think so ; let’s dig into the problem.
If, like me, you don’t give a clue what it’s about, let’s say they send signals to the earth underground, monitor the seismic waves produced, and a geophysicist interpret them to produces a model of how the underground is made. … So, to emphasize how the geophysicist does the interpretation, we got a joke: “If you ask different workers how much is Pi, mathematician says : “the circumference of a circle divided by its diameter” a physician says : “3,14159 plus or minus 10e5” an engineer says : “almost 3” [I’m engineer, we liked this one] a geophysicist asks : “how much you want it to be ?”
Sometime, a member leaves Rotaract. That’s life. But the way it happens varies, and the way we record it is not absolutely fluent. That, also, has an impact on the national member count accuracy.
