ROTARY PRESIDENTIAL CITATION CRITERIA
ROTARY YEAR 2016-17 JOHN GERM

President Elect John Germ has set the objectives he would like to see Rotary Clubs worldwide achieve during Rotary Year 2016-17 starting July 1, 2016. Those Clubs that achieve the stated objectives will be recognized with the prestigious Presidential Citation.

 

The specific objectives are listed below. They can and should serve as clear guidance for Club Presidents and senior officers as their plan your work for Rotary Year 2016-17 starting July 1, 2016.

 

John is stressing the importance of recording all pertinent information within the robust Rotary website at URL Rotary.org. Members should register and go to the "My Rotary" section of the site reserved for members. Here each member should create a visible Rotary profile.

 

Club officers will have special access and should record membership, service and project information - notably at Club and Membership Data and Rotary Club Central. Club projects should be shared on the Showcase section of the website. All of this is clearly stated below.

 

Wishing all a very successful Rotary Year ahead.
