Rotary District 7450 Strategic Plan

(update: January 30, 2019)


Rotary District 7450 strives to make a difference in people’s lives in our Clubs, in our Communities, in our Country and around the World. Because our impact is vast, our District Leadership Team believes it important to design, refine and implement plans and actions to support our core “Service Above Self” vision, mission and beliefs.

During the latter half of 2018, our District’s Board of Directors, and other senior leadership members, began the journey of creating and implementing a new Strategic Plan. This Plan consists of our Vision, Mission and five key strategies accompanied by specific action plans with fellow Rotarians accountable/responsible for their successful completion (see attached Strategic Plan for details).  

If you desire to personally help with any of the Plan’s actions, please contact the person responsible for the action’s success as listed. We welcome and encourage your questions, thoughts and/or feedback about any of the Plan’s initiatives that will help us better fulfill our “Service Above Self” vision/mission.

  1. Within three years, District 7450 will build the infrastructure of programs, services, education and capabilities to support a sustainable community of local Rotary Clubs making a meaningful difference in addressing local and global needs as identified by Rotary International’s six areas of focus.
  2. We will be known for encouraging inclusive, diverse, and multi-generational Rotarians to make a difference in people’s lives through “Service Above Self” in our District’s communities.
