COVID has thrown a wrench in many Clubs’ plans. As we are returning step by step to a more normal life, it may be time to also look at the plans for the future for our Clubs.  Club Visioning offers a process to develop an Action Plan for the Club.  Each member of the Club is invited to participate, and the session can be either on-line or in person.  Interested?  Please, contact Lars Henriksson at to find out more about the Club Visioning program.

Rotary Clubs, like most other organizations, will benefit from having a plan for the next couple of years.  What are your goals?  What do you want your Club to be like - two or three years down the road? 

Strategic planning consists more or less of these three steps. 

  • A description of where you are now, the Club’s status. 

  • As a group, you and your club members decide what and where you want to be in two, three years. 

  • By developing an Action Plan, you and your club members map out how to reach your goals.

Once the plan is approved, you implement it, reviewing it on a regular basis to see how you are doing.  You and your club members analyze the on-going situation. Things may develop differently than you planned.  Why?  What to do?  A strategic plan is a living document and should be used that way.

District 7070 has for many years offered Club Visioning to interested Clubs, using a concept developed by the International Vision Facilitation Council (IVFC).  This model, designed by Rotarians for Rotarians, is used by close to 100 Districts around the Rotary world.  More emphasis is now placed on developing the Action Plan and get the Clubs to implement it.  The working material is also more aligned to RI’s Strategic Plan.

Please, contact PDG Lars Henriksson, for more information on Club Visioning in general AND to arrange a visioning session for your Club.  We are also looking for Rotarians who might be interested in being part of the Facilitation Team.
