Presidential Citation 2016 – 2017

T1617EN_PMS-C

HOW TO QUALIFY

To qualify for the Presidential Citation, clubs must complete two mandatory activities and additional activities in several categories. Most activities will be verified automatically through RI’s data. But some will be verified only by the information you enter in Rotary Club Central. To more accurately capture your club’s achievements, for the first time ever, clubs will have the entire Rotary year — from 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017 — to achieve the Presidential Citation goals. District governors will be able to track the progress of all of their clubs online, and I’m asking them to follow up with you regularly and support you in achieving these goals

DISTRICT CITATION

I will also offer a special citation to districts that:

  1. Have at least 51 percent of clubs earn the Presidential Citation
  2. Contribute at least 20 percent of their District Designated Fund to PolioPlus
  3. Increase Annual Fund giving by 5 percent over last year’s total
  4. Achieve a 3 percent increase in membership

Thank you in advance for your efforts this year to show Rotary Serving Humanity.

MANDATORY ACTIVITIES

Clubs must achieve both of the following goals:

  1. Set at least 10 goals in Rotary Club Central.
  2. Pay semiannual dues to RI on time in July and January. Note: Verify your payment options on your club’s invoice or by contacting your financial representative.

MEMBERSHIP ATTRACTION AND ENGAGEMENT

Verify that all membership data reported through My Rotary or your data integration service provider is accurate by checking Club & Member Data under Club Administration in My Rotary. You can start tracking progress toward your retention goals in September.

Clubs must achieve 2 of the following goals:

  1. Achieve a net gain in membership. Small clubs (up to 50 members) must achieve a net gain of at least one member; large clubs (51 or more members) must achieve a net gain of at least two members.
  2. Improve the member retention rate by at least 1 percent from last year, or maintain 100 percent retention.
  3. Induct new members under the age of 40. Clubs with up to 50 members must induct a minimum of two new members under age 40; clubs with 51 or more members must induct four. The new members must create profiles on My Rotary

FOUNDATION GIVING

Giving and recognition data for your club and club members will be recorded in the contribution and recognition reports available to club officers in My Rotary. In celebration of our Foundation’s centennial, several of these goals refer to the original donation of $26.50 that started The Rotary Foundation in 1917. Additionally, $536 is the approximate equivalent of $26.50 today.

Clubs must achieve 3 of the following goals:

  1. Support our Foundation with a contribution of at least $536.
  2. Support our Foundation with a contribution of at least $26.50 from each member.
  3. Attain at least $2,650 in total giving to PolioPlus in honor of The Rotary Foundation centennial.
  4. Attain a minimum Annual Fund contribution of $100 per capita.
  5. Attain a five-year high in total club giving to the Foundation (combined giving by all members under any designation, with a minimum contribution of $26.50 per member) in honor of the Foundation’s centennial.
  6. Increase the total number of Benefactors and Bequest Society members in the club by at least one.

ONLINE TOOL ADOPTION

All data for these goals will be automatically recorded when the actions are taken. Clubs must achieve 2 of the following goals:

  1. Have at least 50 percent of members identify their skills and interests in their My Rotary profiles, and unlock that section to make it visible on their public profiles.
  2. Post at least one initiative in Rotary Showcase.
  3. Post a project in need of assistance in Rotary Ideas or contribute to a project in Rotary Ideas.
  4. Have at least two members participate in discussion groups in My Rotary

HUMANITARIAN SERVICE

  1. Sponsor at least one Rotary Community Corps to enhance community engagement and ensure project sustainability. Note: Your club’s RCC must be certified with Rotary International.

  4. Have at least one club member attend a grant management seminar. Report in Rotary Club Central.
