Governance
Our Club is governed by three documents:
 
  • The Club Constitution is the first, and follows a standard set by Rotary International, and cannot be changed by our Club without jeopardizing our RI relationship.
     
  • The Rotary Club of Bellingham By-Laws and the Rotary Club of Bellingham Policy Manual, both of which were written by and for our specific Club by our Members, are the other two.  The By-Laws can only be changed with the approval of the members. 
     
  • The Policy Manual is set by the Club Board of Directors, and records policies of procedure and temporal issues, such as meeting times, specific amounts of dues, etc.
