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!

    • Identify your fundraising needs
    • Establish a budget
    • Consider and address local laws for fundraisers
    • Determine available resources in your community
    • Outline the event's logistics (such as selecting the location, ordering supplies, and arranging for set up and tear down)
    • Describe how volunteers will be organised
    • Consider how to publicise the event
    • Provide ways to measure its success
