It is hard to believe but the next Rotary Calender year is fast approaching! The theme for year 2016-2017 is “Rotary Serving Humanity” which hits home the message that service to our communities is a core expectation of all Rotarians.
As incoming Club President for 2016-2017, I would like to invite you to our Annual Planning Retreat that will be on Friday, April 29th from 7:30 AM to 10:30 AM at the Wyndham Garden Hotel on 1330 Stuart Engals Blvd in Mount Pleasant. A buffet breakfast will start at 7:40 AM and we will begin our planning session around 8:00 AM. Focus of the retreat is to 1) review the current year and get feedback on what went well and areas for improvement, 2) discuss direction of club and what member’s expectations are going forward, 3) brainstorm ideas regarding topics such as increasing/retaining membership, new service projects, and determining how to support specific Rotary initiatives, and 4) have an initial planning framework where committee chairs can determine how to proceed.
A detailed agenda will be provided a week before the meeting.
Many of these topics are not new. However, your engagement and feedback is strongly encouraged so we can strive to have a dynamic club that can focus on the theme “Rotary Serving Humanity”.
Please RSVP to me by April 22nd if you plan to attend. Hope to see you there!
