Kenny calls upon Rotarians to take action Rotary clubs can help show that the future of Rotary is in their hands and earn a Presidential Citation by meeting the criteria RI President John Kenny has set for service and membership. To qualify for a citation, clubs must achieve a net increase of at least one member. For the service requirement, clubs must complete an activity in three of six categories, which reflect priorities of the RI Strategic Plan : polio eradication, public image, service, membership, vocational service, and leadership. Clubs must complete these requirements between 1 July and 31 March. The RI theme, The Future of Rotary Is in Your Hands, emphasizes the role individual clubs will play in the future of the organization. Kenny has urged districts and clubs to align their goals with the strategic plan and to develop service projects within three areas of emphasis: water, health and hunger, and literacy.
