Many of you have expressed interest in Visioning for your club!  
Many of you have expressed interest in Visioning for your club!  We have completed the process for three clubs and have another club scheduled for October.  It is a process that can assist your club as you move toward the future.
The process includes a survey of all your club members, a four hour Visioning workshop (you pick the team), followup to see if you are on track, and most of all an opportunity to engage your members in creating a vibrant club.
If you are interested scheduling a Visioning Plus session for your club, please fill out the form below and get back to me so we can start the process.
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
Yours in Rotary,
Marie Baker
