Rotary International is focusing on the use of the Rotary Action Plan as a planning tool to help grow Rotary at the club level. RI President Elect Stephanie Urchick is encouraging Districts and Clubs to use the Action Plan resources to bolster the health of Rotary.
Rotary's Action Plan.  People of Action know that achieving any vision, big or small, requires a plan.
We pioneered a model of service leadership more than a century ago based on person-to-person connections. That model is just as powerful today as ever. Except now, those individual connections span the globe. Today's Rotary doesn't just reach out to act on communities' needs close to home; we transcend borders, generations, languages, cultures, and historic differences to create hope for a better world.
When we imagined where Rotary is going in the next 100 years, we developed a plan built on four priorities: increasing our impact, expanding our reach, enhancing participant engagement, and increasing our ability to adapt.
Priority 1:  Increase Our Impact
As People of Action we make decisions grounded in evidence.
Let’s build the practices, infrastructure, and capacity needed to define, measure, track, and analyze data from our service projects in a much more
effective way.
Priority 2:  Expand our Reach 
As People of Action we are inclusive, engaging, compassionate, and ambitious on behalf of the world.
Let’s share our values with new audiences, create new ways to bring people together to experience the power of Rotary, and prove we are an organization that’s inclusive, engaging, compassionate, and ambitious on behalf of the world.
Priority 3:  Enhance Participant Engagement 
As People of Action we create meaningful relationships across decades and continents.
Let’s use every encounter as an opportunity to show people what Rotary can do for them as individuals and as members of our communities.
Priority 4:  Increase Our Ability to Adapt
As People of Action we seek new perspectives and new ideas that can strengthen Rotary and create lasting change.
Let’s work to create a culture of research, innovation, and willingness to take risks in your club to better serve your community.
