District 6910 Conference

Date: Apr 17-20, 2008

  • Location: Athens, GA

Rotary protocol attendance l.jpg
Rotary Protocol:Attendance

Weekly Attendance is a condition of membership

  • A Make-up is allowed within +/- 14 days(2 weeks)

  • E-clubs forge new path for RotaryAmong the legislation proposed at the 2004 Council on Legislation in June was item No. 04-18, "to allow attendance credit for a 30-minute interactive club Web site activity." The passing of this item significantly expanded the definition of make-up meetings, and by extension, Rotary activity. Now, if a member misses a meeting, in order to receive attendance credit, he or she can go online. This offers an alternative to making up a meeting at another club.

  • The Council's recognition both attests to the number of Rotary club Web sites - estimated at 4,000 and growing - and highlights a recent trend in the Rotary world: Web-based clubs that are not merely Web sites of physical clubs but legitimate clubs that exist exclusively on the Internet.
