Dear Rotary Leaders:
I am writing to provide you with some important information about changes to the 2014-15 Presidential Citation.
RI President Gary C.K. Huang has made a few changes to the “Light Up the Family of Rotary” section of the citation to make these goals more attainable for clubs. The specific changes are as follows:
- For the “Best Class” Club President’s Challenge, points will be earned if either the club president or club president-elect registers to attend the São Paulo convention.
- Points can be earned if the club sponsors a new Rotaract club or Interact club or if it continues to sponsor one of these groups.
- Points can also be earned if the club sponsors a new Rotary Community Corps or if it continues to sponsor an RCC.
- Clubs only need to score a minimum of 30 points in this section of the citation, instead of 40 as originally written.
The updated 2014-15 Presidential Citation form is available on the RI website, here.
As a reminder, club presidents should submit their clubs’ completed forms to their district governors no later than 31 March 2015. Please do not send your forms to RI, as they will not be processed. District governors will have the ability to report the names of their districts’ qualifying clubs online through My Rotary between 1 March and 15 April 2015. We will provide detailed instructions to district governors as we draw closer to 1 March.
