Trained facilitators are ready to guide your Rotary Club with a Vision facilitation process. This is not a District or RI program – it is a process of Club members visioning for your Club.
It is required that the current Club President, President Elect, President Nominee and other Club officers agree to engage and commit to this process. This process asks that all participants think “outside the box.” All Rotarians are of equal voice regardless of tenure in Rotary.
Club participation expectation: Rotary Club of less than 30 members must have 75% of members at facilitation. If club has more than 30 members, than 25 – 30 participants are needed at facilitation. Participants must include a cross section of your membership – including the newest members, males and females, cultural diversity, etc.
