District Governor's December 2019 Newsletter

Dear fellow Rotarians, 

We are all well-aware that the eradication of polio is Rotary International’s top priority.  

We have been striving to accomplish this goal since the 1980s.  While incredible progress has been made, our job is not finished.  With everyone’s support and contributions, we will End Polio Now.

The focus this month on disease prevention and treatment is one of Rotary’s causes for good reason. “The health and vitality of a person, a family and a community can be seriously impaired by what in many cases is a preventable disease.  Disease prevention is really a keystone to progress in other areas as well because of the interplay with other areas of focus like Water and Sanitation and Maternal & Child Health.”.....

NEWS FROM OUR YOUTH - ROTARACT, INTERACT, YOUTH EXCHANGE 

Rotaract policy changes, what you should know

In October 2019, the Board of Directors of Rotary International made several changes to the policies related to Rotaract, which were recommended by the Elevate Rotaract Task Force. The 2019 Council on Legislation amended the constitutional documents of Rotary International to include Rotaract clubs as a membership type. After this landmark decision in April, RI President Mark Maloney appointed the Elevate Rotaract Task Force, composed of Rotaractors and Rotarians, to recommend updates to policies to better reflect Rotaract’s newly elevated status. At every stage of the Task Force’s discussions, the critical goals were to learn what Rotaractors want from their membership and to give them every opportunity to shape these important policy decisions through surveys and focus groups. To learn more about the changes and see answers to frequently asked questions, please click here.
