Administrating a Rotary Club effectively is very important. Effective administration means you will have more time for the fun side of being a Rotarian! What are the goals your club wants to achieve in the next year and in 3 to 5 years? Develop a plan, set achievable goals and decide how they will be achieved. The year ahead then takes on a purpose and members gain a sense of achievement and 'doing good' in their communities. 'Doing good' is why we become Rotarians.  The second part of this resource will give you some information on how to conduct effective club meetings. Hope you find it useful!

2. Strategic planning

StrategicPlanningStrategic planning is an organisation's process of defining its strategy, or direction, and making decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this strategy. It may also extend to control mechanisms for guiding the implementation of the strategy (Wikipedia accessed 25/3/2020).

Strategic planning is important for you as a new president to plan your year ahead. You should have completed your Rotary Health Check and  identified areas for improvement. The next step is to get a team of members together to set your goals. Then develop a plan for achieving those goals. You should align your club's goals to reflect those of the District and Rotary's strategic plan
