Rotary International

Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure

At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality

The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...

Member spotlight: The power of the press

When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...

Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman

Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...

Finance Committees

Administration Committee - Finance

The District Finance Committee is composed of three past district governors selected by the College of Governors at the COG meeting at the annual business meeting and serve rotating three year terms. The District Governor, the District Governor-elect, the District Governor-nominee and the District Treasurer are ex-officio members of the committee and cannot vote. The voting members are the three Finance Committee members.  The District Secretary will record the minutes of the meeting and publish the minutes and handouts on the District website. 

Those aspects of the operation of district finances not prescribed by the district rules of procedure (RoP) are contained in the District Finance Committee Manual.

The district budget for the following Rotary Year (July 1 - June 30) is developed by the DGE with assistance from the Treasurer; reviewed, modified and approved by the District Finance Committee; reviewed, modified and approved by the College of Governors; presented to the attendees of the District Assembly (if the assembly occurs before the District Conference) or the club presidents-elect at the Presidents-Elect Orientation Seminar, then approved by the clubs at the District Conference.

For questions/comments regarding district finances, please contact PDG Carol Foster, the Finance Committee Chair.
