Distinguished Area Requirements

There is still time to be Distinguished

With two months to the closing date of June 30, 2010, there is still time to meet the requirements for Distinguished Area, or even Select Distinguished or the top award of President’s Distinguished.  The table below shows what you need to reach these goals if you started with 4 Clubs.  All our Areas did, except W21 with 3 Clubs, and Peter Law has already reached Select Distinguished, so I don’t need to give him the goals.  If you start with 4 Clubs and gain a new club, that does not change your goal requirements – but it does count towards your goals.

Distinguished Select Distinguished President’s Distinguished
Distinguished Area – 4 of these 5 Goals
75% of Oct dues by Nov 15 3
75% of April dues by May 15 3
Average of 1.75 CCs per club by June 30 7
Average of .5 ACs per club by June 30 2
60% of clubs become Distinguished 2
Select Distinguished Area – all 5 of the above
+ all 3 of these
80% of Area Reports for 1st round by Nov 30 3
80% of Area Reports 2nd round by May 31 3
60% of Clubs 20+ members by June 30 2
President’s Distinguished
all 8 of the above + a net gain of at least 1 club

For most Areas the major problem is the 7 CCs. You don’t need them for Distinguished, but you do for Select and President’s.

You can see a summary of all our WA Areas progress at Distinguished Area 2010
