RI President John Germ and DG Mark Hegstrom encourage each District 5950 club to earn a Presidential Citation, a highly sought award for achieving goals that strengthen Rotary and the club.
To qualify for the Presidential Citation, clubs must complete two mandatory activities and additional activities in the categories of:
- Membership attraction & engagement     
- TRF giving
- Online tool adoption
- Humanitarian service
- New Generations
- Public image.
For the first time ever, clubs will have the entire Rotary year — from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017 — to achieve their Presidential Citation goals. Most of these activities are verified automatically through RI’s data; some will be verified by information clubs enter in Rotary Club Central. District Governor Mark will be able to track clubs’ progress online and offer support so that more of our clubs achieve a Presidential Citation.
