The Zone 34 Public Image Citation is going to be a little different this year for clubs. It isn’t going to be a flurry of activity at the beginning of the year and a mad dash to the finish line. Instead, it is going to be a steady report of your club’s progress and both District 7030 and Zone 34 Public Image Teams look forward to guiding and accompanying you on this journey. Register now for the citation to start receiving information and next steps for your club to qualify. While a club's Public Image Chair should definitely register, any and all other members from Rotary and Rotaract can also register as every member is in some way responsible for a club's public image. La Citation de l'image publique de la zone 34 sera un peu différente cette année pour les clubs. Ce ne sera pas une vague d’activités en début d’année et une course folle vers la ligne d’arrivée. Au lieu de cela, ce sera un rapport régulier sur les progrès de votre club et les équipes Image publique du District 7030 et de la Zone 34 se réjouissent de vous guider et de vous accompagner dans ce voyage. Inscrivez-vous maintenant à la citation pour commencer à recevoir des informations et les prochaines étapes pour que votre club se qualifie. Si le responsable de l'image publique d'un club doit absolument s'inscrire, tous les autres membres du Rotary et du Rotaract peuvent également s'inscrire, car chaque membre est d'une manière ou d'une autre responsable de l'image publique d'un club.

The world is facing a global crisis and in these difficult circumstances, The Rotary Foundation Board of Trustees is making tough decisions to enable our organization thrive. They reported that in 2013-14, when global grants were introduced, the Foundation awarded 868 global grants worth US$47.3 million. By 2018-19, the number of global grants awarded had risen to 1,403 - worth US$86.6 million. However, while the demand for grants rose by 80%, corresponding Annual Fund contributions did not keep pace, showing only a 7% increase during the same time period. And therein lies the problem.
