EVANSTON, Ill., March 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Although the United Nations designates March 22 as World Water Day, Rotary members around the globe are focused on the issue 24/7.

On March 22 Rotary will participate in a World Water Day conference in Washington, D.C. co-hosted by Water Advocates and the National Geographic Society. Speakers will include Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

A humanitarian service organization with 33,000 clubs in more than 200 countries with a total membership over 1.2 million, Rotary is adept at tailoring projects to fit community needs. Rotary members involved in water and sanitation issues will sponsor a World Water Summit in
