Greetings from Evanston! After Council on Legislation here are a few things to note:
  1. Even though there were many more items that passed, a lot of them had to do with the overall organization. This document highlights what’s happening at the club and district levels. For a full overview of the COL, Rotarians could either check in with your COL Reps or visit My Rotary (www.MyRotary.org).
     
  2. You’ll see that page 1 of the document discusses that the language in Standard Rotary Club Constitution (SRCC) will be modernized to make it more accessible. It also asks the reader head to My Rotary to download a copy. We’re still in the process of streamlining the SRCC and expect it’ll be posted soon.
     
  3. In line with number 2 above, the 2019 Manual of Procedure (MOP) is also being drafted. Traditionally, the English version of the MOP has released in the fall (usually October) with translated versions to follow in winter. We expect the same timing this year, and will let you know when the new edition has been released. We’re expecting that it will release as an electronic PDF rather than a printed version.
