Governor's Objectives for 2016-17
The key goals for District 9940 in 2016-17 under the three areas of focus in RI’s strategic plan are to:
 
1. SUPPORT AND STRENGTHEN CLUBS
Increase membership by 3%
We can increase membership by not only inviting potential members to our Rotary events, but also by establishing new Clubs or satellite Clubs where Rotary is not represented. Our Club can stay as it is, change significantly, or offer another alternative such as satellite meetings to attract members.
 
Increase reporting in Rotary Club Central.
By recording our Club goals in Rotary Club Central we are creating a record that will show what our goals were and whether we achieved them. All members would knowin our Clubs over time and across the District more about what we are achieving in our communities.
 
Increase diversity within your Club or consider a satellite Club or sponsoring a new Club.
If some people in our community are not represented in our Rotary Club we should either ensure those people are welcomed into our Club or seriously consider developing new or satellite clubs.
 
2. FOCUS AND INCREASE HUMANITARIAN SERVICE
Increase understanding of and giving to The Rotary Foundation so we can do more projects
As our charity of choice, all members should consider their level of personal giving to The Rotary Foundation to help Rotarians improve the lives of others. Consider becoming a Centurion member by donating NZ$100 a year to our charity of choice, or a Paul Harris Society member by donating US$1,000 a year. The aim is for each Club to contribute NZ $100 per member per year to The Rotary Foundation.
 
Celebrate 100 years of The Rotary Foundation with a special project.
 
3. ENHANCE PUBLIC IMAGE AND AWARENESS
Ensure each club has an up-to-date internet presence.
A vibrant, outward facing online presence is important for prospective members and for letting the community know about Rotary and what we are doing to improve communities.
