Council grants clubs greater flexibility in meeting, membership

The 2016 Council on Legislation may well be remembered as one of the most progressive in Rotary history.

Not only did this Council grant clubs more freedom in determining their meeting schedule and membership, it also approved an increase in per capita dues of $4 a year for three years. The increase will be used to enhance Rotary’s website, improve online tools, and add programs and services to help clubs increase membership.

The Council is an essential element of Rotary’s governance. Every three years, members from around the world gather in Chicago to consider proposed changes to the policies that govern the organization and its member clubs. Measures that are adopted take effect 1 July.

The tone for this year was set early, when the RI Board put forth two proposals that increase flexibility. The first measure allows clubs to decide to vary their meeting times, whether to meet online or in person, and when to cancel a meeting, as long as they meet at least twice a month. The second allows clubs flexibility in choosing their membership rules and requirements. Both passed.

Representatives also approved removing six membership criteria from the RI Constitution and replacing them with a simple requirement that a member be a person of good character who has a good reputation in their business or community and is willing to serve the community.

The $4 per year dues increase was based on a five-year financial forecast that predicted that if Rotary didn’t either raise dues or make drastic cuts, its reserves would dip below mandated levels by 2020. The yearly per capita dues that clubs pay to RI will be $60 in 2017-18, $64 in 2018-19, and $68 in 2019-20. The next council will establish the rate after that.

“We are at a moment in time when we must think beyond the status quo,” said RI Vice President Greg E. Podd. “We must think about our future.”

Podd said the dues increase will allow RI to improve My Rotary, develop resources so clubs can offer a better membership experience, simplify club and district reporting, improve website access for Rotaractors, and update systems to keep Rotary in compliance with changing global regulations.

Also because of this Council’s decisions:

  • A Council on Resolutions will meet annually online to consider resolutions — recommendations to the RI Board. Council members will be selected for three-year terms. They’ll participate in the Council on Resolutions for three years and the Council on Legislation in their final year only. The Council on Resolutions will free the Council on Legislation to concentrate on enactments — changes to Rotary’s governing documents. Proponents predict that the Council on Legislation can then be shortened by a day, saving $300,000.
  • Rotaractors will be allowed to become members of Rotary clubs while they are still in Rotaract. Proponents argued that too few Rotaractors join Rotary. Sometimes it’s because they don’t want to leave their Rotaract clubs before they have to, upon reaching age 30. It’s hoped that giving them more options will boost the numbers of qualified young leaders in Rotary.
  • The distinction between e-clubs and traditional clubs will be eliminated. The Council recognized that clubs have been meeting in a number of ways, and given this flexibility, the distinction was no longer meaningful. Clubs that have “e-club” in their names can keep it, however.
  • The reference to admission fees will be removed from the bylaws. Proponents argued that the mention of admission fees does not advance a modern image of Rotary.
  • A standing committee on membership was established, in recognition that membership is a top priority of the organization, and polio eradication was also reaffirmed to be a goal of the highest order.

The Rotary Youth Exchange Program does not happen without your club's support.  Recruiting OUTBOUND ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE STUDENTS should be a continuous process for district Rotary clubs.  Suggested recruitment sources are school language teachers, Interact, RYLA, church groups, news promotions and your own club or family contacts.

Rotary clubs are asked to recruit students from their communities well in advance of their exchange year. In order to obtain exchanges for long term outbound students ages 15 1/2 to 18 1/2 , the district interviews occur each November for the next school year.  Long Term Applications for the 2018-19 school year are due to the district no later than Oct 30, 2017.

There are also some short term exchanges that occur during the summer.  One month of family to family visiting between and exchange student and a foreign host family with a student.  These exchanges are from ages 14-19.

Details about the Youth Exchange program are found in the left column of this page.  Under SITE PAGES, click on the ROTARY YOUTH EXCHANGE link.

If you would like to have a club program on Youth Exchange, or need posters to put up at schools, or need more information about the program itself. Please contact Jaci Williams at jacy.5770@gmail.com or Russ Davoren rdavo@cox.net

Rotary District 5770 participated in the 28th Lone Star Presidents-Elect Training Seminar (PETS) at the DFW Airport in Dallas.  Presidents-elect were trained in every aspect of Rotary to help them be better equipped to handle responsibilities as club president.  In addition to the formal training, participants had the opportunity to visit vendors selling Rotary products, heard motivational speakers, and had the opportunity to meet and hear Rotary international (RI) leaders.  Featured speakers were our own District5770 RI President Ron Burton and RI President-elect Gary Huang from Taiwan.

In prior years district 5770 participated as an invited guest.  2014 is the first year that the district is a sanctioned member of the organization.  Lone Star PETS serves nine Texas districts and district 5770 from Oklahoma.  Currently there is a total of 576 Rotary clubs encouraged to participate at this event.  District 5770 has 34 clubs with 24 in attendance this year.  District presidents-elect met with governor-elect Bob Dill on Friday and then on Saturday in small groups based on club size with clubs from the other districts.  Some members of the district 5770 Leadership Team served as volunteer presenters and discussion leaders.

Rotary’s Challenge for polio eradication has reached the US$200 million milestone. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has awarded The Rotary Foundation an additional $50 million grant, which is not a challenge grant, in recognition of Rotary's early achievement of this milestone. To date, Rotarians worldwide have contributed more than $1 billion toward the eradication of polio, a cause Rotary took on in 1985.

Additionally, Rotary club members worldwide are cautiously celebrating a major milestone in the global effort to eradicate polio. India, until recently an epicenter of the wild poliovirus, has gone one year without recording a new case of the crippling, sometimes fatal, disease.
