Rotary District 7980 Awards for 2019-20



Awards-An approach
The RI Presidents Citation and the Governors Award are objective awards for which every club could qualify. They are the basis of our awards.
          Clubs will be encouraged to apply for the Presidents Citation and the Governors Award. These are objective awards for which it is clear whether or not the club has achieved the items. In the Fall and in February the AG will remind the club President to look at the elements of the Presidents citation and the Governors Award and work on taking the actions required to earn them.  On or about April 1 the AG and the club President will decide whether the club has achieved the award by specifically answering the questions. They will provide the information and result to the Award Committee. The  Awards Committee.will check and certify the result.

So every club should work to get the
Rotary Presidential Citation 2019-20
