2016 Council on Legislation Issues Sweeping Report

Every three years, Rotarians meet at the Council on Legislation to review and vote on proposed governance legislation.

The 2016 Council on Legislation met in Chicago in mid April. An official report of action has now been compiled and is being sent to clubs, and posted online. Clubs have an opportunity to record opposition to any action during the following two months. If at least 5 percent of the votes entitled to be cast by the clubs oppose an action, the legislation is suspended and the general secretary conducts a ballot-by-mail. A majority vote would cause the proposal to be rejected. Deadline to register opposition to an action is August 1, 2016.

Week 52 beginning June 27

Fel LeeThis will be my last Rotary minute as your District Governor. Serving as your District Governor during the 2015-1016 Rotary year has been a once in a lifetime opportunity. What an honor to serve the Rotarians of District 6970, the greatest district in the Rotary world! 

Just a few of the many accomplishments you achieved this year include raising 

$230,000 to eradicate Polio, giving over $455,000 to the Rotary Foundation and growing membership within our district. Once again, you have showed why District 6970 consistently ranks as one of the top districts in the Rotary world!

As District Governor Elect (DGE) Marshall takes the leadership reins on July 1st, I ask you give him and his leadership team your full support. DGE Marshall is prepared to lead our district to the greatest height ever achieved!

I will not be too far away as I plan to serve on DGE Marshall’s leadership team and continue my service to our great district. Signing off until will meet again at the next Rotary event!
