Our District Governor, Megan Law, invites you to join her as we celebrate this great Rotary year and the amazing Rotarians in all of the clubs.  Coming up in less than two months is the Rotary District 5750 Annual Conference (May 4-6, 2017) in Shawnee, OK at the Grand Hotel & Resort. 
 
There is no charge to attend the Conference for active Rotarians, and there is only a minimal charge for guests at a few events.  Registration is now open on the district website:
 
 
Hotel Block Open until April 22nd
You may now reserve a hotel room through our reserved hotel block by calling the hotel directly at 405-964-7777.  Identify yourself as a member of ROTARY DISTRICT 5750.  We have secured discounted room rates of $109 for a standard room and $159 for a suite.
 
In preparation for the Conference, we request your help in a few areas:
 
Introduction of Conference Speakers by Club Presidents
We ask for your help to introduce speakers, breaks, and possibly to give an invocation during our Conference.  If you are interested, please email Jessica Sherrill at jessica.rotary5750@gmail.com.
 
Silent Auction Basket to promote your Rotary Club
To highlight our unique and amazing Rotary clubs within our district, we are asking each club to put together a silent auction basket to be displayed during Conference and given out to winners at our BBQ and Blackjack Party Saturdaynight!  These help Conference-goers learn more about your club.  Plus, it’s always exciting to win an awesome basket of goodies!  Be thinking now what your club could contribute.
 
Recognizing Deceased Rotarians
As we close out this Rotary year, we ask that you notify Jessica Sherrill (jessica.rotary5750@gmail.com) of any Rotarians who passed away since April 2016.  We would like to honor them in our Friday All-Club Luncheon.  Please send a photo and name of the Rotarian along with classification, club offices held, awards, etc.
 
Foundation Dinner Friday to honor Paul Harris Fellows
The Foundation dinner will be Friday night, honoring those who have reached the next level of Foundation Giving. Soon a list of members and their Foundation donation levels, highlighting those less than $500 away from the next level will be emailed to you.
 
Rotary Awards to be given at Saturday Luncheon
The Awards Lunch will highlight Rotary clubs and Rotarians who went above and beyond, whether it was in completing the Presidential Citation, District Governor Citation or other outstanding service through Rotary.  Please go to the RI web site and input your Presidential Citation information. The District Governor Citation form is attached and after completion should be emailed to Megan Law at mlaw@accelfinancial.com by April 1.
 
Survey to Determine Interest in Rotary Kids’ Conference
We are considering conducting a Rotary Conference for children and grandchildren of Rotarians in our district.  To determine interest, we have created an online survey.  Please visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8H8MJP7 to complete the survey.  We will review the responses no later than April 1.
 
Lastly, please begin spreading the word about the District Conference from now until May!  This is our time to celebrate successes, get to know Rotarians from across our district, highlight honors and awards, and generally just have a good time!  Please encourage all Rotarians to attend and perhaps consider cancelling your meeting that week to promote attendance at the Annual Conference.  We have even included a powerpoint presentation that you can share with your club members!

We appreciate all you do for Rotary and truly look forward to seeing you in May at the Conference!

     National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Commemoration

       The National Park Service and the United States Navy will co-host the 75th commemoration of the attack on Pearl Harbor. This event is also supported by the City and County of Honolulu, the State of Hawaii

       and the Governor's Office, members of Hawaii's congressional delegation, and other branches of the U.S. military.

 

      The USS Oklahoma ceremony commemorates the devastating loss of the ship and 429 of its crew members. That ship was torpedoed relentlessly and capsized within 14 minutes. She represents the second greatest loss 

      of life of the ships struck at Pearl Harbor. Since the inception of the Memorial on Ford Island, the National Park Service has conducted on every Dec. 7 a special ceremony in the early afternoon of that honored day.

 

  

  Our own Sergeant First Class Hugh Kinsey, United States Army, Retired, played Taps at the dedication of the USS Oklahoma Memorial on Dec. 7, 2007 and is returning to Pearl Harbor to play taps during this historic

  75th Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day Commemoration. CNN.com is live-streaming all the special events of the day beginning at 7:30 AM local (11:30 Central); the USS Oklahoma event is scheduled for 1:00 PM local

  (5:00 PM Central).

The medical center receives magazines from community partners, and the magazines are kept on the wards and in the waiting areas. The books go to the library on the main floor, and the library staff puts some of the books on display 
shelves outside the library for after-hours visitors. 

"Most of the books we receive are geared toward women," Mr. Maxey said. "There just aren't enough with men interests in mind." 

Mr. Maxey has been the chief of voluntary service for 12 years and has worked at the medical center for a total of 18 years. He coordinates voluntary efforts and oversees donations and fund-raising activities, designed to make veterans more comfortable during their visit. He came to the VA with a mission to give back to something that supported his dad, a Vietnam veteran. 

According to hospital records, about 125 patients stay at the hospital on any given day, and patients stay an average of six days.

ESSENTIAL CHANGES FOR CLUBS AND DISTRICTS from 2016 Council on Legislation
(The numbers in parentheses identify the relevant legislative enactments).
 
Attendance Ability to change rules. Clubs may relax or tighten attendance requirements and termination policies for non-attendance. However, clubs are still expected to forward attendance reports to the governor. Any club that wishes to continue adhering to the traditional attendance requirements may do so. (16-21)
 
Rule of 85. Rotarians can be excused from attendance if the combined total of their years of membership in one or more clubs plus their age equals at least 85, with their years of membership totaling at least 20. (16-35)
 
Club Board Treasurer. A club treasurer is now a permanent member of the club board. (16-02)
 
Board meeting minutes. Written minutes should be prepared for all club board meetings and be made available to members within 60 days of that meeting. (16-01)
 
Club Finances Admission fees. New members can be admitted without paying admission fees. However, clubs may also choose to retain these fees, and they have the flexibility to add admission or other fees to their bylaws. (16-07)
 
Club dues increased. To address both financial challenges and the need to improve service to clubs, RI semiannual dues were increased by $4 for each of the next three years — to US$30.00 per half year in 2017-2018, US$32.00 per half year in 2018-2019, and US$34.00 per half year in 2019-2020. (16-99)
 
Club Meetings Ability to change meeting schedules. Clubs can now vary their meeting days and times, and can cancel meetings, as long as they meet at least twice a month. However, any club that wishes to adhere to the traditional requirements regarding meetings and cancellations may do so. (16-21)
 
Canceling a meeting. Clubs can cancel a meeting if it falls during a week that includes a holiday. (16-26)
 
In-person and online meeting participation. Clubs can have in-person meetings, online meetings, allow online participation for an in-person meeting, or switch between any of these formats. (16-30)
 
Council on Legislation Proposed legislation. Only two types of proposals will be considered: enactments, which seek changes to RI’s constitutional documents, and position statements from the RI Board. (16-113)
 
Council representatives. Representatives will serve for three years, starting on 1 July of the year following their selection. For example, the 2019 Council representative would take office on 1 July 2017 and serve until 30 June 2020. (16-114)
 
Council on Resolutions. A Council on Resolutions consisting of Council representatives will meet online annually to consider recommendations. Resolutions may be proposed by a club, district conference, the RIBI general council or conference. Those resolutions adopted by a majority vote of council representatives must be submitted to the general secretary by 30 June of the year prior to the Council on Legislation. (16-113)
 
District Changes Moving clubs into adjacent districts. The Board can merge a district with fewer than 1,100 members, or divide districts with more than 100 clubs by moving clubs into adjacent districts. (16-84)
 
Two years for districting changes to take effect. Any decision by the Board to eliminate or change district boundaries won’t become effective until at least 24 months after it is made. (16-86)
 
District Leadership Vice governors. Having a vice governor is no longer mandatory. This role replaces the governor in case of that person’s inability to perform their duties. If the district uses a nominating committee, the committee selects a past governor proposed by the governor-elect. If the nominating committee doesn’t receive a nomination, or if a nominating committee was not used, the governor-elect may choose a past governor as vice governor. The vice governor serves in the year following his or her selection. (16-74, 16-76, 16-77)
 
Procedures for failing to adopt the annual statement and report of district finances. The statement and report of finances must be discussed and adopted within three months of the conclusion of the district conference or at the next district meeting to which all clubs are entitled to send a representative and for which 30 days’ notice has been given. If no district meeting is held, the governor must conduct a ballot by mail within 60 days of the end of that three-month period. (16-88)
 
Mishandling of district finances. Anyone who fails to follow Rotary’s financial requirements, including improperly administering the district fund, is prohibited from holding any Rotary or district office until the irregularities are resolved. (16-89)
 
E-clubs E-clubs and Rotary clubs. The distinction between traditional clubs and e-clubs was eliminated. While references to e-clubs have been removed from Rotary’s constitutional documents, e-clubs may continue to name and promote themselves as Rotary clubs that meet exclusively or primarily on-line. (16-82)
 
Elections Concurring with a governor selection challenge. The number of clubs that must concur with a club’s challenge to the nominated candidate has been increased to 10 other clubs, or 20 percent of the total number of clubs in the district, whichever number is higher. Only clubs that are at least one year old as of 1 July of that year are counted in the total and may concur with a challenge. (16-71)
 
Special elections nominating procedure streamlined. If a district restarts the governor selection process due to special circumstances, the governor does not need to repeat the request for suggestions from clubs if there were none made during the first nominating process. (16-72)
 
Magazines Joint magazine subscriptions. Two Rotarians residing at the same address may choose to subscribe jointly to The Rotarian or to the regional magazine prescribed for their club. (16-96)
 
Membership Rules and qualifications. Clubs may determine their own rules or requirements for transferring members, dual membership, and honorary members. They’re also free to continue following the traditional provisions for these members. The only mandatory qualifications for membership are that Rotarians must be adults who have demonstrated good character, integrity and leadership; have a good reputation in their business, profession and community; and are willing to serve in their community and around the world. (16-36, 16-38)
 
New membership types. Clubs may offer associate, corporate, family, or other membership types. Clubs offering these additional types would report these members to Rotary as “active” for purposes of inclusion on the club invoice. Other financial obligations (club dues, meal costs, etc.), attendance requirements, and service expectations for these members are determined by the club. However, only active members may be considered for office and count in determining a club’s voting strength. (16-36)
 
Dual membership in Rotary and Rotaract clubs. Rotaractors can simultaneously hold separate membership in a Rotaract club and a Rotary club. (16-40)
 
Transferring member statement. Potential members who owe money to another club are ineligible for membership. Clubs must seek confirmation that a former Rotarian does not have any outstanding debt to their previous club. When a club requests a statement from the club of a member who wishes to transfer, or who was previously a member, as to whether that person owes money, the request must be responded to within 30 days. If no response is provided, it is assumed that the member doesn’t owe anything. These changes are in the RI Bylaws but are no longer repeated in the Standard Rotary Club Constitution. (16-51)
 
New Clubs Charter member minimum. New clubs need at least 20 members to be chartered. (16-83)
 
Suspension Suspension of membership. Clubs may now suspend a member for a maximum of 90 days. At the end of that time, they must either terminate or reinstate the member. A suspended member has the right to appeal the suspension or request mediation or arbitration. (16-49, 16-50)
 
Suspension or termination of clubs because of litigation. Clubs can be suspended or terminated if one of their members takes legal action against RI or The Rotary Foundation — including action against directors, trustees, officers, and employees — before exhausting all Rotary remedies. The Council also clarified the conditions under which the RI Board may take action against districts with repeated election complaints. (16-81)

CELEBRATE THE CENTENNIAL
 
In 2016/17, our Rotary Foundation turns 100. That’s a century of Rotary     members changing lives and improving communities all over the world. And    that’s definitely something worth celebrating.
 
Through our Foundation, Rotary members have supported thousands of projects to provide clean water, fight disease, promote peace, provide basic education,  and grow local economies. We’ve also been a leader in the fight to eradicate  polio worldwide.
 
The centennial is the perfect time to share this impressive record with the      world. Join us in making sure that every Rotary member and people in every   community know about the vital work of Rotary and its Foundation.
 
Events
We are marking the centennial with a year of festivities beginning with the    2016 Rotary Convention in Korea. Make a note of these celebration            opportunities:
 
At the Korea convention
Visit the Centennial booth in the House of Friendship
Attend the breakout session The Rotary Foundation: 100 Years of Doing Good in the World
Have your copy of “Doing Good in the World: The Inspiring Story of The Rotary  Foundation’s First 100 Years” signed by its author, David C. Forward (you can   purchase the book at the Rotary Resource Center)
 
At the Atlanta convention:
Register for the Atlanta convention, 10/14 June 2017, so you can take part in  the Foundation’s 100th birthday party
Join past and current Rotary leaders and author David Forward for book signing
Visit The Rotary Foundation centennial exhibit in the House of Friendship
 
Ways to celebrate
  1. Here are just a few ways you can join in and commemorate this historic milestone:
  2. Plan a special Rotary Day and invite everyone in your community to      participate. It can be anything from a concert to a race to a birthday     party with a giant cake in the shape of the  Rotary wheel.
  3. Hold a fundraiser in your community to support a Foundation grant       project, the Rotary Peace Centers, or PolioPlus.
  4. Organize or participate in a global grant or district grant project.
  5. Promote your club or district projects that are funded by the Foundation.
  6. Dedicate some club meetings to Rotary Foundation topics.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES
 
These principles have been developed over the years to provide Rotarians with a strong, common purpose and direction. They serve as a foundation for our       relationships with each other and the action we take in the world.
 
OBJECT OF ROTARY
The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
FIRST: The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
SECOND: High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s   occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal,       business, and community life;
FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the   ideal of service.
 
THE FOUR-WAY TEST
The Four/Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been   translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:
Of the things we think, say or do
  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
 
AVENUES OF SERVICE
We channel our commitment to service at home and abroad through five     Avenues of Service, which are the foundation of club activity.
  1. Club Service focuses on making clubs strong. A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships and an active membership development plan.
  2. Vocational Service calls on every Rotarian to work with integrity and      contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society. 
  3. Community Service encourages every Rotarian to find ways to improve   the quality of life for people in their communities and to serve the public   interest. 
  4. International Service exemplifies our global reach in promoting peace and understanding. We support this service avenue by sponsoring or        volunteering on international projects and seeking partners abroad.
  5. Youth Service recognizes the importance of empowering youth and young professionals through leadership development programs such as RotaractInteractRotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Rotary Youth Exchange.
