4 Way Test
Of the things we think, say or do ...

1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

The Object of Rotary
The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster: 

1. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service
2. High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society.
3. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life.
4. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

       Here it is October already !   The first quarter of the Rotary year is behind us – how are you doing on your personal and club goals this year ? If one of your goals was to take advantage of the educational and fellowship opportunities sponsored by Rotary, this is the time to meet those goals.   Join us at the Fall Seminar on October 18th, and at the Foundation Dinner on November 6th – registration information is available on the district website.  And, watch for registration for the TriCon District Conference to open soon.   I hope you will join us there for the state-wide celebration of Rotary!
     
October is Vocational Service month.   RI President Gary C. K. Huang challenges us to energize our communities and strengthen our membership, fellowship, and service efforts by Lighting Up Rotary.   Through vocational service initiatives, we can be champions for high ethical standards in our workplaces and use our professional expertise to serve others. 
     
Many clubs I’ve talked to are looking for ideas, so here are a few:

Posted by Colleen Kalscheuer on Oct 23, 2014

RI President Gary C.K. Huang has made a few changes to the “Light Up the Family of Rotary” section of the citation to make these goals more attainable for clubs. The specific changes are as follows:

  • For the “Best Class” Club President’s Challenge, points will be earned if either the club president or club president-elect registers to attend the São Paulo convention.
  • Points can be earned if the club sponsors a new Rotaract club or Interact club or if it continues to sponsor one of these groups.
  • Points can also be earned if the club sponsors a new Rotary Community Corps or if it continues to sponsor an RCC.
  •  Clubs only need to score a minimum of 30 points in this section of the citation, instead of 40 as originally written.

The updated 2014-15 Presidential Citation form is available on the RI website, here.

Whether your club is a subordinate under Rotary International’s 501(c)(4) group exemption or is independently tax-exempt, the IRS requires that all Rotary clubs in the U.S. and its territories file an annual information return. For those clubs whose tax year follows the Rotary year, the deadline to file is 15 November. The form a club must file is dependent upon its gross receipts for the year. For more information, please see Frequently asked questions about annual reporting requirements for exempt organizations at www.irs.gov.

It's Time to Switch to ClubRunner 3.0!

As a reminder, as of October 31, 2014, ClubRunner will no longer be applying bug fixes to the Version 2.0 platform and all updates will only be made to Version 3.0, and so they strongly urge you to switch today. 

There is no difference in pricing between Version 2.0 and 3.0, plus switching is easy! Please note that you must have site administrator rights (access level 30) in order to switch.  For more information, please visit their website:  http://site.clubrunner.ca/​

     Every three years we Rotarians have an opportunity to have input into the way Rotary International is organized and functions. RI convenes the Council on Legislation (COL) which is it's official legislative body that considers enactment of  legislation and other proposals for changes in the organization. These changes may affect RI bylaws, RI constitution and/or club constitutions.  The COL is made up of representatives from each of the 538 districts from around the Rotary world. I will be representing District 6270 with Tamie Koop as the alternate.

Rotary is continuing to follow the developments surrounding the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and advice of the World Health Organization and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, our partners in international public health. Although Rotary has limited opportunities to respond at a corporate level, our strength as an organization is firmly rooted in the grassroots response of Rotary clubs and Rotarians.

When a serious illness stripped away many of her professional ambitions, Amanda Wirtz turned to humanitarian service and Facebook to give her life new purpose. Wirtz launched the world's first Facebook-based Rotary club last year, United Services Rotary.

DO YOU...

  • Talk about your vocation in your club, and take time to learn about fellow members’ 
    vocations.
  • Use your professional skills to serve a community. 
  • Practice your profession with integrity, and inspire others to behave ethically through 
    your own words and actions
  • Help a young person achieve his or her career aspirations.
  • Guide and encourage others in their professional development.

If you do any of these things, you are performing vocational service. And if vocational service motivates and energizes you, then you’re in the right place, because vocational service is the very essence of Rotary. It is what sets Rotary apart from other service organizations.

 The Rotarian Magazine is our link to the greater Rotary world. The pictures and stories tell us of the wonderful work that is being done, in and through Rotary, to make the world a better, safer and a more peaceful place…all because we are advancing the key elements of social justice, health projects, and educational opportunity and alleviating the dire effects of poverty.
     
A person is not free if they are hungry. A man is not free when he has to watch his children die because of the lack of clean water or adequate food. A mother will not be free if her sick child cannot receive medical care and when people are not free they will seek social justice even if it means going to war to achieve it.
     
Our magazine, paid for in our RI dues, is not junk mail. It makes you and me “literate” in the great story of Rotary. Read it. Share it with others. Drop it off in a public area where literature is offered, a dentist's reception area, the waiting room at your local hospital or when you go to your accountant's office to pick up your tax filings. Plant the seeds of Rotary by sharing our great story.

     Healthy, vibrant and growing clubs require that all members feel they have a voice in the club.  Conducting regular member surveys is one way to improve member satisfaction in Rotary and increase member retention.  There are many tools, hi and low tech, available to help.
