Strategic Plan Update
We started working on our 2021-2024 Strategic Plan in late summer and had a meeting each month as well as emails soliciting the opinions and thoughts of our members. We looked at the plan from 2015 and the review from 2016 to get a sense of what we might want to carry forward. We noted that our vision statement was quite long, and I hoped to make it more concise. We also did a little research and analysis including looking at our Club’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, and focused specifically on where our opportunities and strengths are. Based on that, we determined a direction for the future.
Lisa has led us into a more activist role, promoting People of Action. Over the next three years, we can build on what has been established by our leadership over the past two years – Lisa and JoEllen – in terms of building membership and taking action.
Here is what we accomplished: a vision, a mission and three overarching goals. The “how” of meeting our goals will be added early next summer.
The Rotary Club of Englewood is an organization whose members work together to meet needs in our community and beyond. Leveraging our camaraderie, creativity, resources and diversity, we are always striving to serve as an exemplary organization in our community.
To provide service to others and promote integrity, understanding, good will and peace in our Club, our community, nationally and abroad.
Membership - To attract and engage new members while maintaining an equal focus on meeting the needs of current members, both recent and long term.
Community/Service – To devote ourselves to active, hands-on service in our community and beyond.
Youth - To place particular emphasis on reaching out to the young people of Englewood, playing a role in developing future leaders.
Thank you to those who actively participated in our discussions and responded to email questionnaires and surveys. This could not have happened without you.
