Rotary International Strategic Plan

In 2001-02, Rotary International launched the development of a strategic plan to guide our association as it prepares to enter its second century of service. Working with the consulting firm, Interactive Business Systems, a Strategic Planning Committee appointed by the RI President outlined seven major goals for Rotary. These goals were developed after careful consideration of data collected at the leadership, staff and grassroots levels of the organization as to the important issues and challenges that Rotary faces in the coming decade. Following is a list of the goals:

Eradicate polio
Sharpen program focus
Select new corporate program focus
Refine governance/leadership structure
Improve training and education at all levels
Expand and integrate membership globally
Enhance public image

Three-year measurable objectives were then developed for each goal. Action teams composed of volunteer leaders and staff members are currently developing and implementing action plans for accomplish these objectives.
