Discussion about the theme; how it applies to what clubs do; meaning, etc.
Review and ask question:How do you think RI came up with these 3 strategic initiatives? Do this before moving to next slide.
Keep these processes in mind as we move forward. How might you use them in learning more about your club and its role in your community?
Discussion about the relevancy of these goals. Do you see other goals that RI should consider?Since District is there to support the clubs, open the discussion for “how” these goals can be implemented in our own district.
Can anyone describe our district – geographically? #s of clubs in district? #s of Rotarians?One of 531 districts in the worldIncludes Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe and GBI
34 Zones in the world; we are in Zone 34 and partner with Zone 33, which is composed of 29 districts including the Caribbean (next slide) Point out the 8 districts in Florida – important for them re: PETS
Does anyone know the difference between the Board of Directors and the Board of Trustees? RI Board of Directors are: selected by the Zone(s); set policy, develops a theme and establishes the emphasis for the year RI Board of Trustees is appointed by the RI president with the agreement of the RI Board. They manage all business of the FoundationVice Chair John Germ will be speaking at the All Florida PETS in Orlando
Where is RI headquartered?What is the role of RIBI? RIBI serves the clubs and districts of that region
Do you know what the role of the Asst Gov is?AAG for Foundation?AAG for Membership?How do you think you can use these individuals to help you and your club?
I think we ought to have them shout out/raise hand when they have identified their AG, to make sure we’ve got everything covered.
There are numerous Committee Chairs to manage the efforts of the district. Their role is to be a resource for the clubs and Rotarians, as well as to provide leadership in potential overall district-wide activities related to their committee.These committee chairs and contact information will be found in the District Directory.PEs should scan these slides just to be aware of the opportunities.
Encourage you and your club members to become active in these committees.
Brainstorm what an effective president would do.
Does everyone know what a club assembly is? How often does their club have a club assembly? How have they used club assemblies?Suggestions for how they involve club members? What about those who are always on the ‘fringes’ of the clubs?How do they communicate? Club newsletter? Club website? Do you use other technology/social media to communicate with your members?How do you ensure continuity in your leadershipWhat are some of the opportunities for learning more about Rotary? [RLI; Club Leadership Forum a/k/a District Assembly; The Rotarian magazine; Rotary Moments; RiIntenational Convention, etc.]
What is the Club Leadership Plan?How many clubs have implemented the Club Leadership Plan?
The Club Leadership Plan was approved by the RI Board in November 2004 as a recommended structure for clubs. The Club Leadership Plan is not mandatory, but the plan in flexible and can be customized so that all clubs can benefit from reviewing the best practices.
Best Practices can be found in the booklet on “The Club Leadership Plan” on your flash drive.
As part of the CLP, it is recommended that clubs review their committee structure. The 5 recommended club committees are: Club administration - conducts activities associated with the effective operation of the clubClub public relations - develops and implements plans to provide the public with information about Rotary and to promote the club’s service projects and activities3. Membership - develops and implements a comprehensive plan for the recruitment and retention of members4. Service projects - develops and implements educational, humanitarian, and vocational projects that address the needs of its community and communities in other countriesThe Rotary Foundation - develops and implements plans to support The Rotary Foundation through both financial contributions and program participationThese 5 committees were identified as key to the success of any Rotary Club and it is strongly recommended that these Chairs are active participants in your Club Board.The Four Avenues of Service still serve as the foundation of the club’s efforts and focus.
The 4 Avenues of Service still remain the guiding vision for Rotary Clubs.The Club Leadership Plan is a list of best practices for clubs to consider.The Club Leadership Plan fosters continuity and consensus among leaders for goal setting (long-term and annual) and project management.
Who knows what the “Object of Rotary” is? Do you know what the relationship is between the Ave of Service and the Object of Rotary?The Avenues of Services were developed in the 1920’s to clarify the Object of Rotary
Question the participants about the Avenue of Service that corresponds to each of the points:Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the effective functioning of the club.Vocation Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and practice high ethical standardsCommunity Service covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community.International Service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the globe and promote world understanding and peace.BEFORE GOING TO NEXT SLIDE ASK: What is the purpose of the district???
The role of RI is to support the districts and the role of district is to support the clubs.
District Committees and Roles are designed to provide additional support and resources for each of the 5 committees.The Committee Chairs for each of these committees (identified in the District Directory you will receive in April), are anxious to help you be successful. Work with them; encourage your committee chairs to work with them, or any club members who are interested.
Start a discussion about who has.participated in RLI .who has attended a Club Leadership Forum.who has attended a district conference.who has attended an RI International Convention – are they going this year.who has read one district newsletter in the last 3 months.who reads The Rotarian
Brainstorm the difference. Have a scribe…..Strategic planning determines the future of an organization. Goal setting determines resource allocations and steps toward creating that future.
Brainstorm with/without scribe.Club buy-inA visionContinuity in leadership Collaboration in leadership (best thing about Rotary and the worst thing about Rotary is that leadership only serves one year. Can you imagine a Fortune 500 business that intentionally rotated leadership every year? How could they achieve their goals unless the current and incoming leadership worked together? CAN YOU GIVE EXAMPLES OF THE ADVANTAGES OF WORKING WITH YOUR PREDECESSOR AND YOUR SUCCESSOR?
Discuss:How to get buy-in from your boardWhat’s the best way to involve the membershipHow do you determine the key values of your clubwho and how does a vision get created
What resources, club information, or other data would be useful to you in developing a strategic plan?
Discuss how these can assist a club in strategic planning
Take 3 minutes and ask them to write down their vision of where they’d like to see their club in 5 years. Have a few share their visions.
How many of you feel this way?Do you club meetings “sometimes” seem to fit this description? Have group give examples of what happens to make meetings unmemorable…
ParticipantsGoals/reasons for a meetingTime constraintsCreate an agenda:What duties need to be performedWho does whatHow do you establish time limitsKnow your groupStart on timeWATCH your groupStay on timeBe considerate of your groupFinish on timeThank speaker personally and off podiumCheck with club secretary about any ‘business’Make sure anyone responsible for ‘next steps’ (for projects, speakers, etc.) understands their tasksThank anyone personally who helped to make the meeting a successBrainstorm others….Your meetings will be a result of your preparation.
We’re going to discuss ‘communication and public relations’ in the same session, because in essence they are inextricably intertwined.
Brainstorm ideas….No one will take the responsibility in the clubLack of interestFeeling that no one reads club newsletter/district newsletter/RI materialsLack of clarity of what should be communicated and to whomLack of interest from mediaLack of PR trainingLack of funding for effortsLack of ready-to-use PR materials
Do you know what kinds of resources are available for you?
This is a short 30 second video – what purpose does it serve? Discuss the importance/effectiveness of visual/audio in getting the message across.
Who do you need to communicate to and why?Hail to the Presidents – Doug’s missive sent to the Presidents*Do they know how to do email blasts to members in their clubs?Discuss the importance of internal marketing (to club members).
What can you find on the D6990 website??
Does everyone in the room know “how” to access the database (through the D6990 website??)?Do you know what information is available here? <query participants>How can this be important to you during your presidency?Who else, in your club, is this helpful for?
Available at the RI website:Discussion forums: training, PR, club issues, etc.Download library for forms, pictures, etc.RSS feed
Always go to the Downloads section and see what resources are available to you.Many templates, where you can just drop in your informationRotary Images are available to use in your club newsletter or any advertisement.
Several locations on Facebook: Rotary International/Rotaract/Interact/Individual ClubsClubs in this districtGSEYouth Programs, etc.How can you use this information?
Rotary YouTube Channel has videos. How can you use these videos?? you can use at your club meetings, in training, for new member orientationsAlso includes Rotaract + Interact
Is anyone using social networking to improve communication within your club?
Note: At the Club Leadership Forum, there will be a session on Marketing/PR offered by a professional. It will be a hands-on session. We’re encouraging your PR Chair and any other members to participate as they’ll walk away with the beginning of a Marketing Plan for the year.
Review these with the participants and explain HOF/Vendors in case someone doesn’t know what it is.Outline expected attire: business casual – they are representing their club and their districtEmphasize that the major speakers are at mealtimes and this is part of the program; meals aren’t optional, but required.
Question the group on receiving the emails from PETS and if they’re working on them. Discuss why it’s important. Being a ‘president’ is more than just running a meeting – there’s lots of information, resources, materials available, but they need to understand how to take advantage of it. Emphasize how much is packed into two days and how they can avoid feeling overwhelmed by being prepared.Also emphasize how much FUN it is!!!
