The annual Rotary leadership cycle presents challenges to Rotarians at all levels.  Rotary Clubs are seeing the need to look beyond day-to-day operations and, in rare circumstances, annual goals.

What can a Strategic Plan (or Club Vision) do for your Rotary Club?
  • Get buy-in from the membership by including past, current, and incoming officers in the planning process, as well as mix of seasoned and new members.
  • Go outside your club to find facilitators who are knowledgeable about both Rotary and Planning.
  • Use the Club Leadership Plan (Click Here)
  • Write it down.  Having a written document that passes from one Club President to the next promotes continuity.
  • Spend time discussing the Club's culture ("how we do things here") and define your aspriational values as well as your actual ones.
  • Appoint a President's Council or similar strategic group to implement the plan and track results.
  • Connect the annual budget to the strategic plan.
  • Set a reasonable number of goals.  Too many can make the task seem overwhelming.
  • Keep asking, "How are we doing?" and review the plan at board meetings, club assemblies, and in between.
"If you don't know where you are going, chances are that you will end up someplace else."
