The District Vision and Planning Committee is hosting the 7th in our series of Vision to Plan Workshops on Thursday, October 29, 2015 .  PRE-REGISTRATION (not payment) IS REQUIRED!
The Session will continue the work done at the last workshop, to help clubs improve the knowledge and skills needed to take a club’s vision and develop a strategic plan.   We will continue to focus our efforts to help tie Rotary Club Central Goal Setting and Club Leadership Development planning work into the vision to plan (V2P) process. The Committee has developed training tools and documents to help you learn and effectively run such a process.
Event Details are:
Optional Social Hour:  4:45 – 5:45 PM: Snow Squall Restaurant, 18 Ocean St., South Portland, Maine 207-799-0811, with cash bar and appetizers for purchase.  This has become a well attended social.
Workshop:  6:00 – 8:00 PM, S. Portland Housing Authority, 100 Waterman Drive, S. Portland, Maine (around the corner from the Snow Squall).   Located just over the Casco Bay Bridge from Portland.
The registration cost of $9 (check made out to District 7780, or cash) covers a light meal and supplies.  It can be paid at the door or, preferably in advance.  Mail to:  11 Todd Road, Cape Elizabeth, ME. 04107.   The invitation is open to clubs whether or not they have done a formal District vision event.
Session Details:   We hope that representatives will bring their club ideas for 1 or 2 areas of focus, which are being formulated for this year.   We will conduct exercises whereby we work as teams to develop goals and objectives for some of these focus areas.   Membership, Fundraising, Community and International Service Projects, Public Relations and the Foundation will be part of the hands on work.  We will tie V2P concepts to your Rotary clubs planning process.
Our committee is confident that this upcoming workshop will benefit all attendees. 
If you plan to attend please send an email to or 207-799-7997.
On another note, we are interested in supporting individual clubs with either an initial vision session, a second vision event (as recently done at SPCE Rotary in May – see photo), or a club planning workshop, assembly or discussion.   Contact us for details
