A Club Vision Facilitation is a four hour evening session (typically 5:00 - 9:00) that assists key leaders and interested
members of a Rotary club in achieving continuity, consistency and consensus.

The facilitation session is intended for all interested Rotarians in your club-from your newest members to your
most tenured.  The breadth and depth of the facilitation exercise is optimized when club leaders (past, present
and future) and member opinion leaders participate.

Our D5960 volunteer Vision Facilitation Team typically commits approximately 25 hours of volunteer time to
each event and therefore expects:

1. Attendance at the event by present board members, the current president, president-elect, president-elect
nominee, immediate past-president, and two other past-presidents. Their collective involvement is essential.

2. Participants to commit to the entire 4-hour exercise.

3. The number of Rotarians committed to a session will be no less than 12 for smaller clubs but no more
than 25 (to maintain the time schedule and allow fair and full input from all present). 

For clubs over 40 members, our team expects attendance to be between 20 and 25. For clubs
over 80, we expect 25 members in attendance.

NOTE:  Given that the Facilitation Team is volunteering their time and traveling to visit
your club, the Team has the latitude to reschedule should the above criteria not be met. 

Each club requesting a Vision Facilitation will designate a "Coordinator" who will work with our
District Vision Facilitation Coordinator providing all the information and direction individual Rotarians will need
in preparation for the session.

During the Vision Facilitation session, a team of facilitators will lead a process consisting of an overview
presentation, a writing exercise, data collection, consensus voting and summary and action plan

There are at least three measures of success for clubs that complete a Vision Facilitation:

1. An immediate measure of progress will be the members' pledge and willingness to move the planning
processes from a nice-to-do concept to meaningful growth programs for the club, its members, and its

2. The second is that the output from this session is woven into the annual plans of the incoming and
succeeding Presidents.  It will be reflected in the continuity and consistency of programming and leadership
in your Club.

3. Finally, the long-term mark of accomplishment will be at the end of five years when your club advances
from where it is to where it wants to be.
