Every three years – Rotary International reviews the policies and practices of the organisation. This process (called the Council on Legislation) convenes in one location and is attended by a representative from every Rotary area (District) in the world – some 523 representatives gather to review, consider and decide on the suggestions, representations and propositions that have been presented for consideration.
There are four of special interest this year and they cover, changing the charity status of Rotary International (under USA law) to make the organisation eligible for tax reductions amongst other benefits, admitting Rotaract Clubs to members of Rotary International, amend the terms of reference for Rotaract and Interact, revision of the policy on financial reserves, reducing the held reserves from 85% of operating expenditure to 55%.
Here’s the link to a short summary (less than 100 words) on these four proposals.
The representative for District 9810 is Past District Governor, David Alexander.
