Rotary International's New Vision Statement
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.”...
The new vision statement helps us set a future course so that Rotary can thrive in the years ahead. It reflects the impact Rotary aspires to have on the world and our members.
To get an unbiased perspective while we developed the vision statement, we worked with Grant Thornton, a consulting agency that specializes in planning and change management.
To help us in shaping the vision, Grant Thornton facilitated surveys, focus groups, and interviews with Rotarians, Rotaractors, Foundation partners, Rotary alumni, Rotarian Action Groups, and others. “It was critical that the vision be crafted from diverse feedback so that it could be understood and adopted by all,” says Stephanie A. Urchick, chair of the Strategic Planning Committee.
“We cannot thank our survey and focus groups enough. Your honest feedback was invaluable not only in capturing the true spirit, shared values, and priorities that make up the distinct character of Rotarians, but also in providing a rich foundation for the next phase of our work: building the strategic plan and priorities needed to bring our vision to life,” she said.
Rotary is developing a plan for implementing the new strategic plan this year.
Happening now....Women's Fund of Greater Milwaukee - Sexual Harrassment - Full house - Amigos Rotarians in attendance including Tre Waldren, Dorothy Krupa, Paul Berger, @Gustavo de Arriba, and Angela Rester at Adient in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Amigos Rotarian Fessahaye Mebrahtu is also from Eritrea and has been the Executive Director of PACA (Pan-African Community Association.
Fresh from his win against Iron Chef Bobby Flay on Iron Chef Showdown, Chef Tory Miller talks about the future of the Madison food scene — and an amusing beef with his TV opponent.
Very sad. In 2007 Amigos Rotarians Dorothy Krupa and Angela Rester a part of a polio immunization program in India. In 2009 Rester participated in an additional program in Nigeria. We saw how hard the polio workers work and their commitment to this effort for their country and their people which makes this especially sad in Pakistan.
For the 10th consecutive year, The Rotary Foundation has received the highest rating — four stars — from Charity Navigator, an independent evaluator of charities in the U.S.
In the most recent ratings, the Foundation earned the maximum of 100 points for demonstrating both strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency.
In a letter to the Foundation, Charity Navigator notes that "only 1 percent of the charities we evaluate have received at least 10 c...onsecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that The Rotary Foundation outperforms other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets The Rotary Foundation apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness."
The rating reflects Charity Navigator's assessment of how the Foundation uses donations, sustains its programs and services, and practices good governance and openness.
“I want you to inspire in your clubs, your Rotarians, that desire for something greater. The drive to do more, to be more, to create something that will live beyond each of us.”
Rotary Club of Mitchell Field in Milwaukee has always been a wonderful supporter of our club... from day one and especially Rob Bassett. Can't thank them enough and happy for the new members to their Club.
