Every three years, Rotarians meet at the Council on Legislation to review and vote on proposed legislation. The Council gives us a voice in how our organization is governed by including one representative from every District.

The next Council convenes in April 2016; however, proposed legislation must be received at Rotary International headquarters in Evanston, Illinois by 31 December 2014.  Club legislation must be endorsed by the district – (in our case ballot by mail).

Clubs and Districts may propose enactments which seek to change Rotary’s constitutional documents, and resolutions which express an opinion or make a recommendation to the RI Board.

Clubs should start to consider proposed submissions as soon as possible to meet the December 2014 deadline. Information to assist in preparation of submissions is available on the RI website at www.rotary.org/col.

Please advise me of any comments or questions.
