New vision statement in Rotary’s strategic plan

Rotary’s strategic plan provides the framework for our future, ensuring that we continue to be known as a respected, dynamic organization that advances communities worldwide. The strategic plan evolves with the aspirations of Rotarians. It is shaped by regular input from members through surveys, focus groups, committees, and meetings, so it can continue to help us achieve our goals. In June, Rotary’s Board of Directors and Trustees approved a new vision statement for the organization: “Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”

NOTE: Those last three words indicate a new facet for Rotary and were discussed at length before the vision statement was adopted. It charges us with developing our members in addition to our traditional role to help in our communities and around the globe.
