BOOKINGS ARE CLOSING ON SUNDAY 18 NOVEMBER

 

Bookings for our wonderful celebration of our Rotary Foundation on Monday 26th November are coming in steadily now.  It would be great to have a record attendance of D9685 and D9675 Rotarians, partners, and friends at our dinner with Past Rotary International President Ian Riseley as our Guest Speaker.  PRIP Ian will also make a very special presentation to a Sydney based recipient of a Peace award which is only awarded in the year to one person world wide.

 

Bookings are closing on Sunday 18 November. Our numbers needs to be finalised for the catering, so I urge you to get those table bookings in for your club as soon as possible.  And for those of you coming individually we look forward to you registering as soon as possible now.

 

Please register at foundationdinner.rotarydistrict9685.org.au

We welcome you to a great night of fellowship and learning more about our Foundation.

I have reviewed the proposed resolutions put forward by districts around the world. Our district, through Central Blue Mountains Rotary proposed the resolution regarding capturing volunteer time on administration and fundraising.
The results of the vote will be known in late November. 
 
David Cook and I participated in the Council on Legislation sessions at Institute. It was good practice and worth listening to the proposals put forward by other districts and the RI Board. Our district put forward two proposed enactments.
Basically the Council on Resolutions manages recommendations to the Board to change policies set out in the Code of Policies. 
The Council on Legislation acts as the parliamentary body and votes on bylaw and constitutional changes. 
One Rotarian from every district forms part of the Council. Currently we vote on resolutions every year and on enactments once every three years. 
 
On behalf of D9685 I have currently voted on the 2018 Council on Resolutions
 
If Rotarians are interested in finding out more the following materials are available to help you navigate the COR:
  • Council on Resolutions FAQs
  • Council on Resolutions Rules of Procedure
  • How to Read Resolutions
  • How to Participate in the Council on Resolutions
 

 

Having a consistent brand image is important to all organisations, Rotary is no exception. In 2013, a new logo & brand image pack was developed, this was to ensure every club, in every district across the world could have the same high standard of brand recognition.

 

Over the past few months, we have been completing health checks, and it is very noticeable that there a lot of old style graphics being used in various publications, including newsletters & flyers, and hardware items, such as banners. Could all clubs please check all of their clubs portfolio, and make the correct changes. When posting anything on social media, or submitting items to the District newsletter, please make sure they are updated.
