Applications now being accepted: Pilot allows innovative and flexible approaches to running a club

Is your club interested in trying new ways to find and keep members? Then it may be a good fit for the Innovative and Flexible Rotary Club pilot to experiment with variations on the traditional Rotary club structure. .

The RI Board of Directors invites up to 850 more clubs to take part in the pilot. Your club could try out ideas not currently allowed under the Standard Rotary Club Constitution, such as shared attendance with spouses, alternating between online and in-person meetings, or new leadership structures.

For example, the Rotary Club of Toronto Sunrise, N.S.W., Australia has three members sharing leadership responsibilities for a year as co-presidents. The club reports that having three leaders put their skills and ideas to use is prompting the club to try new things, and has already resulted in a 25 percent gain in membership.

To qualify:

• Your club must have been chartered no later than 30 June 2010, have at least 20 members, and be in good financial standing with Rotary International.
• Two-thirds of your club's members must vote to participate in the pilot and certify the results on the voting certificate included with your application.
• Your club must agree to participate from 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2017 and to submit reports to Rotary International.
• Your club must register with and maintain records through Rotary Club Central and My Rotary.
• Applications are due by 31 March.

Rotary are right on track! - A Rotary GB & I Story

Rotary in the West Scotland area are to sponsor one of Scotland’s biggest Track and Field Athletics Championships next month.

Rotary in the West of Scotland are the sole sponsor for the Scottish Schools Indoor Athletic Championships at the Emirates Arena in the City, which was a main venue for the Commonwealth Games held in Glasgow last summer.

The Championships which will be named “Rotary International Scottish Schools Indoor Athletic Championships” are due to take place on 4th and 5th February with more than 1400 athletes from 200 schools throughout Scotland competing.

Frances Fegan, Vice Chairman of the SSAA said “The support from Rotary in Scotland is very encouraging for everyone involved in athletics in school communities. We are very grateful for the sponsorship and hope that we can now work together to put on a great event”

Richard Lees, a former governor on the West Scotland area, adds, “Rotary is for communities. Clubs in the West of Scotland voted to support the SSAA following on from the success of the Commonwealth Games and we are proud to support our schools and their communities.”

A day at Chulalongkorn studying peace

My husband, Frank, and I were recently invited to sit in on a day of classes during the first week of the current Rotary Peace Center’s certificate program, held at Chulalongkorn University in Thailand. Every year, Rotary selects 50 mid-life professionals in a worldwide search to come to Bangkok for three months to study peace and conflict resolution.

As I looked around the room, I realized that
I was surrounded by professionals who have personally known war (Afghanistan, Bosnia-Herzogovina); oppression (Sri Lanka, Palestine); terrorism (Palestine and Kenya) as well as those who have lived less exciting lives. The students were from a mix of backgrounds and ages. In fact, of the 22 students in the room, all they really had in common was versatility in English.....

For 65 years, king of the Rotarians has been present and accounted for

They sounded the bell to convene Tuesday’s meeting of the Rotary Club of Richmond. To say the gathering was nothing new for Robert C. “Bob” King Sr. is a bit of an understatement.

The meeting at the Willow Oaks Country Club marked 65 years of perfect Rotary attendance for King. That’s 3,380 consecutive weekly gatherings, he said.

That’s a record for the club — by nine years. A spokeswoman for Rotary International, based in Evanston, Ill., said the organization does not track worldwide perfect-attendance records.

After he joined the Rotary organization in 1950, King said, he made it a point to show up — if not in Richmond, then wherever he was.

That would include meetings in Europe and all across the continental U.S. and several abroad, King said......
