"If you don't know where you are going, chances are you will end up someplace else."    (Yogi Berra)

Rotary clubs are encouraged to develop a strategic plan (visioning) to provide the framework to guide their goals and service work in the community.  The strategic plan defines who they are as a club and help to focus their service in both the local and international communities.
 
To help with this process District 7010 has developed a comprehensive model called Visioning to help clubs examine where they are now and how they got there, identify goals and objectives for the next three to five years, develop and implementation strategy including establishing timelines to achieve them. 
 
While the process is customized to meet your individual club’s needs the Visioning process includes:
 
  • Identification of a Visioning Committee (10 – 20 members) who will be responsible for the process
  • A club survey followed by a face to face planning session, approximately 3 hours in length, to review the survey findings, identify priorities for the next 3 – 5 years, outline action plans, including assigning responsibility for completion and timelines
  • Present findings to the club which includes the survey findings, proposed goals, action steps and timelines and presentation to the club
  • Implementation of actions including an annual review of the plan
  • Six month follow up to assess progress
Rotary Clubs that have been in involved in the Visioning process report a stronger sense of mission and purpose as a club and a revitalization of member involvement.
