Rotary:  Making a Difference
2017-2018 Citation Overview


Message from Ian H.S. Risley - 2017-2018 President - Rotary International:

"Clubs that are strong and making a positive difference in our communities achieve goals related to Rotary’s three strategic priorities: to support and strengthen clubs, focus and increase humanitarian service, and enhance Rotary’s public image and awareness.

This year’s Rotary Citation will recognize clubs that complete activities that support these priorities. Clubs will have the entire Rotary year — 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018 — to achieve the citation’s goals.

Rotary will be able to verify your club’s completion of most of the goals using our database. For others, we’ll confirm your club’s achievements through information you enter in Rotary Club Central, Rotary Showcase, and Rotary Ideas.

District governors can also track their clubs’ progress online. I’m asking each of them to talk with clubs regularly and support them in achieving these goals and Making a Difference.
