Five Year Plan
Sea Island Rotary Club’s Five-Year Strategic Plan 2020/2021
 
Vision Statement
 
            Together, Sea Island Rotary Club sees a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – in ourselves, in our community of Beaufort, and across the globe.
 
Mission Statement
 
          We provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, good will, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders of Beaufort.
 
Action Plan
 
            As People of Action, we share a strong sense of purpose. More than forty-years ago, the Sea Island Rotary Club was formed as sponsored by the Beaufort Rotary Club of Beaufort, SC. This pioneering resulted in a new model of service leadership grounded in person-to-person connections. Today, those connections are a network that spans the globe – bridging cultural, linguistic, generational, and geographic barriers – and shares the vision of a better world. As People of Action, we understand that fulfilling that vision requires a plan.
 
This is Sea Island Rotary Club’s plan for the next five years:
 
  • to increase our impact
  • to expand our reach
  • to enhance participant engagement
  • to increase our ability to adapt  
 
By helping to realize the goals of this plan, we ensure a stronger and even more effective future for Rotary – a tremendous legacy. Our club plan is rooted in our tried-and-true values and builds on the remarkable capabilities and the spirit of Sea Island Rotarians. It is clear-eyed about the challenge that Rotary and the world face.
 
  • It protects the value of human connection in an age of technology.
  • It lays out a path for bringing great ideas to the forefront of the global and community imagination of what’s possible.
  • It will provide us with a continuity of vision from year to year, keeping us moving toward our shared purpose.
