As a Rotary year closes, clubs need to apply or send in information to receive the Presidential Citation from Rotary International or the Club Exemplary Award from District 5930. In the past the deadline was March 31 and there several applications to complete and send. NOT THIS YEAR!
 
NEW DEADLINE: JUNE 30, 2017
 
For the Presidential Citation:
Process for entering data at Rotary Club Central (www.my.rotary.com) – please watch this video - https://youtu.be/hNnMW44220c
Tasks can be done by the Club President, Club Secretary or Club Executive Secretary.
 
For the Exemplary Club AwardsUse this document (also available on the public side of our website and given to your President during the Official DG/Board meeting).
 
The only data entry needed using ClubRunner is the normal Secretary and Officer work done continuously all year long. Nothing specific for these awards.
However it is best to make sure your officers are listed in ClubRunner for next year. This will ensure that the new District Leadership can reach them and they will have access to ClubRunner and Rotary Club Administration areas and Rotary Club Central. Directions for how to do enter Club Officers in ClubRunner.
 
HOWEVER - WE DO REQUIRE: 
Item 3.  Reported club officers for the upcoming Rotary year to data@rotary.org no later than the end of May 2017 (That is also an RI requirement)
 
 
Earning the Presidential Citation is an honor and one that RI President John F. Germ hopes all clubs strive to achieve. The time limit for achieving the citation goals for the 2016-17 Rotary year is approaching rapidly. To earn the citation, please complete all activities and enter your accomplishments in Rotary’s database by 30 June.
 
HOW CAN I SEE MY CLUB’S PROGRESS?
Any member who has a My Rotary account can view their club's citation dashboard by signing in to My Rotary. Then, under Manage, in Club & District Administration, go to Reports and look under the "Awards" section. If a club member who isn’t an officer wants to record citation progress in Rotary Club Central, you can delegate your level of access (PDF) temporarily to allow them to do that.
 
ARE ROTARY CLUB CENTRAL GOALS DIFFERENT FROM CITATION GOALS?
Some of the goals in the 2016-17 Presidential Citation are tracked in Rotary Club Central. These are clearly marked in the Presidential Citation brochure (PDF). It is your responsibility as a club leader to ensure that you record your club’s achievement of these goals in Rotary Club Central on time.
 
WHAT ABOUT THE CITATION FOR ROTARACT AND INTERACT CLUBS?
You can view these reports in the same location. Rotaract club presidents can view their dashboard report and make updates on Rotary.org. In order to be nominated for the Presidential Citation, Interact clubs must also have their achievements reported to RI. In May, sponsor Rotary clubs will receive instructions for reporting Interact clubs that qualify for the Presidential Citation. RI cannot accept nominations by email, mail, or phone.
 
WHERE CAN I FIND MORE INFORMATION?
This year we are pleased to offer a variety of resources to help your club:
