President’s Message

By Pres. Teofilo Rodriguez

Greetings fellow Rotarians.

Happy New Year!

It’s another Rotary year, a fresh start of another year of service. Let’s

all welcome this new Rotary year as a new opportunity and more

eagerness to serve.

It’s now time to implement all that we’ve learned and look forward to be

felt more by our own community. And as we start the month of service,

let’s continue the same energy and perseverance as the previous

Rotary year.

I would like to take this opportunity to encourage everybody to support

our club activities, be involved in all its undertakings and observe the

importance of harmonious relationship, by understanding & helping

each other.

Throughr every member’s cooperation, I am optimistic that as one, we

can carry on in achieving our goals for a better Rotary year.

May God guide us, may all our visions materialize and may we always

be a Rotarian Serving Humanity.

Teofilo “Boyet” Rodriguez

President

“ROTARY SERVING HUMANITY”

PresidentIAL MESSAGE

John F. Germ

President 2016-17

July 2016

Today, we look ahead toward a Rotary year that may one day be known as the

greatest in our history: the year that sees the world's last case of polio. Wild

poliovirus caused only 74 cases of polio in 2015, all of them in Afghanistan and

Pakistan. As we continue to work tirelessly toward our goal of eradication, we

must also look beyond it: preparing to leverage our success into even greater

successes to come.

It is tremendously important to Rotary's future that our role in the eradication of

polio be recognized. The more we are known for what we've achieved, the more

we'll be able to attract the partners, the funding, and, most important, the members

to achieve even more. We're working hard at RI headquarters to be sure

that Rotary gets that recognition. But it can't all happen in Evanston. We need

you to get the word out through your clubs and in your communities about what

Rotary is and what we do. We need to be sure that our clubs are ready for the

moment when polio is finally eradicated – so that when people who want to do

good see that Rotary is a place where they can change the world, every Rotary

club is ready to give them that opportunity.

We know that if we want to see Rotary Serving Humanity even better in the years

ahead, we'll need more willing hands, more caring hearts, and more bright minds

to move our work forward. We'll need clubs that are flexible, so that Rotary service

will be attractive to younger members, recent retirees, and working people.

We'll need to seek out new partnerships, opening ourselves more to collaborative

relationships with other organizations.

Looking ahead, we also see a clear need to prioritize continuity in our leadership.

We in Rotary are all playing on the same team, working toward the same goals.

If we want to reach those goals together, we all have to move in the same direction

– together.

Every day that you serve in Rotary, you have the opportunity to change lives.

Everything you do matters; every good work makes the world better for us all.

In this new Rotary year, we all have a new chance to change the world for the

better, through Rotary Serving Humanity.

May 2016 | A roundup of Rotary news

PASSING THE BATON

LEADER

A strong succession plan ensures that your impact as a leader will continue

beyond your term. During your year in office, you’ve developed strategies for

achieving your goals. But as 1 July approaches, your impact on your club, district,

and zone will be enhanced if you focus less on the achievements you’ve

made and more on working with your successors — as well as your predecessor

— to build on longterm goals included in a multiyear strategic plan.

By taking this approach, you can create a smooth and simple transition.

Here’s advice from several leaders, based on their own experiences:

Peter Roaf, president of the Rotary Club of Ladner, British Columbia, Canada,

says his first transition step was to meet with the president-elect and the president-designate

to develop next year’s slate of officers. He also involved his

successor early on in decision making, correspondence, and discussions, and

has provided opportunities for this person to chair club and board meetings.

“I regard my successor with respect, as not just somebody who needs to be

trained but as a wise and experienced leader who has a considerable contribution

to make in leading the club,” Roaf says. “That collaborative work involves

not only the presidentelect but the president-designate and past president. As

we work our way through year two of a fiveyear strategy, my successors and

predecessor [and I] are, in effect, a strategic leadership team with a shared

vision, prepared to keep a focus on the momentum needed to achieve what we

planned by the end of five years.”

Marty Helman, a past governor of District 7780 (parts of Maine and New

Hampshire, USA), said club visioning and other programs that promote continuity

and strategic planning have been helpful to clubs in her area. “It’s not a

silver bullet, because there’s a long way from planning to implementation,” she

says. “But it does provide a way for a club to come up with a three-year plan

that includes the ideas of everyone in the room.”

Inger-Britt Zeiner, a Rotary public image coordinator from Norway, involved

incoming coordinator Leif Fritsdal of Denmark early on, co-hosting virtual and

face-to-face meetings with all the coordinators in zones 15 and 16. Zeiner says

it’s been important to work side by side in selecting Fritsdal’s assistants, to

ensure team continuity.

WHY THE ROTARY YEAR BEGINS 1 JULY

Rotary's first fiscal year began the day after the first convention ended. The convention

of the Rotary Clubs of America was held in Rotary’s birthplace, Chicago, in 1910.

Ever wonder why the Rotary year begins 1 July? The international convention initially

played a key role in determining the start date of our fiscal and administrative

year.

Rotary's first fiscal year began the day after the first convention ended, on 18 August

1910. The 1911-12 fiscal year also related to the convention, beginning with the first

day of the 1911 convention on 21 August.

At its August 1912 meeting, the Board of Directors ordered an audit of the International

Association of Rotary Clubs' finances. The auditors recommended that the

organization end its fiscal year on 30 June to give the secretary and treasurer time

to prepare a financial statement for the convention and board, and determine the

proper number of club delegates to the convention.

The executive committee concurred, and at its April 1913 meeting, designated 30

June as the end of the fiscal year. This also allowed for changes to the schedule for

reporting club membership and payments. Even The Rotarian changed its volume

numbering system to correspond to the fiscal year (beginning with vol. 5, July 1914).

Rotary continued to hold its annual conventions in July or August until 1917. Delegates

to the 1916 event in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, approved a resolution to hold

future conventions in June, mainly because of the heat in cities where most of them

occurred. The next one was held 17-21 June in Atlanta, Georgia.

The term "Rotary year" has been used to signify Rotary's annual administrative

period since at least 1913. An article in The Rotarian that July noted, "The Rotary

year that is rapidly drawing to a close has been signalized by several highly successful

joint meetings of Clubs that are so situated as to assemble together easily and

conveniently."

Since the executive committee's decision in 1913, the end of the Rotary year has

remained 30 June.
