The Basics:

  • Rotary Visioning is a structured process which helps Clubs develop a strategic plan

  • It was developed in America, but has also been used successfully in Canada, Australia and New Zealand

  • Clubs who have gone through Visioning have become more vibrant and have attracted new and retained existing members

The Process:

Clubs invite the District Visioning Team in to help; Visioning is not something that is 'done' to a Club by District.

The District Visioning Team will visit a Club and will facilitate a session with that Club’s leaders and members to help them envision their group’s future and then work out what steps they need to take to get there. That first session lasts around four hours and runs through a number of structured steps to build consensus. It’s not just a loose, free-for-all discussion.

After that the Club takes away the results of the session and works them into a plan and puts that plan into action. The Club will need to appoint their own Visioning Champion to own that plan and to drive it forward.
