I am proud to announce that our club, Rotary club of Southbank, has been awarded the Rotary Citation with Platinum distinction for last year, 2019-2020! It was an exciting time to be President and I thank all club members for their support and contribution to our success! It was a team effort, let's continue the good work!
The following is an explanation about Rotary citation from Grant Hocking, our immediate past District Governor:
"The Rotary Citation recognizes Rotary clubs that support Rotary's strategic priorities by completing certain activities. The Rotary Citation is a significant award that honours clubs whose leaders and members show a commitment to success. Clubs that achieve the goals required to earn the Rotary Citation are strengthening Rotary and shaping our future.
Rotary automatically verifies many club achievements via clubs keeping information up to date on My Rotary. To be eligible for the Rotary Citation, clubs need to begin the year as active clubs that are in good standing and remain so throughout the year.
The required achievements were centred around the headings Unite People (membership, sponsoring new clubs, alumni event, youth exchange) and Take Action (Foundation committee and contribution, member engagement, Polio, Project work, Public image).
For the 2019-2020 year, clubs could also receive the Rotary Citation with Distinction when they achieve the Rotary Citation plus one to three additional goals under the headings ; Connect leaders, connect families, connect professionally, and connect community (Silver 1 goal, Gold 2 goals or Platinum 3 goals)."
