Administration

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!

2.9. Rotary's areas of focus

The work of Rotary begins in the community, and every community has its own unique needs and concerns. While Rotary serves in countless ways, they have focused efforts in seven key areas to maximise impact. These areas encompass some of the world’s most critical and widespread humanitarian needs, and we have a proven record of success in addressing them:

    • Peace and conflict prevention/resolution
    • Disease prevention and treatment
    • Water and sanitation
    • Maternal and child health
    • Basic education and literacy
    • Economic and community development
    • Supporting environment
When applying for a Grant you will be asked to align your project to Rotary's Areas of Focus. Read more about the Areas of focus.
