Presidential Citation Committee


Light Up Rotary is not just our theme for the year – it is a call for each of us to take action and make Rotary stronger.  The 2014-15 Presidential Citation will recognize Rotary clubs that take action to increase their membership, enhance their service impact, and expand their network.

Clubs must achieve a certain number of points in each of the three activity categories list below.  The Co-chairs have picked the following benchmarks to achieve each category.

Committee members are needed to help with these benchmarks.  Note – not everybody needs to work on all of these benchmarks  – this needs to be a divide and conquer approach.

Light Up Rotary Membership

  • Achieve a net gain of 1-4 percent of new members (10 points)
  • Club president personally sponsors two new members (5 points)
  • Ensure every member has a profile on My Rotary (5 points)
  • Promote member engagement by ensuring that each club member is assigned a specific role in your club’s leadership development goals for this year, either in a leadership role, or as a member of a club committee, or project initiative. (5 points)
  • Increase the diversity of your club’s membership by recruiting at least two new members who belong to a demographic group that is underrepresented in your club (gender, age, profession, or ethnicity) (5 points)
  • Successfully recruit a former Rotaractor or Rotary alumnus to join your club or successfully refer them to another Rotary club for membership (5 points for each former Rotaractor or Rotary alumnus)
  • 30 points are needed in this category

Light up Rotary Service

  • Participate in a local or international service project related to at least one of Rotary’s areas of focus (10 points)
  • Our club president personally donated to The Rotary Foundation (5 points)
