PolioPlus Responding to the Covid-19 Challenge
 
Rotary's worldwide Polio Plus program has not only nearly eradicated  the disease, it has created an infrastructure which is now being utilized to fight Covid-19. Read what Mike McGovern, Chair of the Rotary International PolioPlus Committee and John Germ, Past Rotary International President and Chair of the Polio Countdown to History Committee report about Rotary's Covid-19 response.

As time goes on, I will continue to do my best to keep you all up to date on how COVID-19 is affecting operations for the Foundation and donor giving.

As you all probably know by now, the majority of Rotary staff have been working remotely from home since last week. As of Saturday evening, a statewide shelter-in-place order went into effect across Illinois meaning that residents may only leave their places of residence to carry out essential activities (such as going to the grocery store, seeking medical attention, etc.). This means that until the order is lifted, no personnel are now being permitted to enter Rotary’s One Rotary Center build-ing.
(from Rotary Voices - May 29, 2019) - By Joe Otin, governor-elect of Rotary District 9212 (Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, South Sudan)

 

I gravitate naturally to statistics despite the negative feelings some people have about them. I think that information is the fuel that our world runs on and without it our systems will sputter, stall, and shut down. That is because statistics are significant in decision making.

When I joined the Rotary Club of Nairobi East, Kenya, 19 years ago, I was told that good Rotarians were defined by the regularity of their attendance, the frequency of their gifts to The Rotary Foundation, and most importantly by their ability to introduce new members to the club.

But that is not what attracts people to Rotary ... to learn more - Read the rest of this post

The Council On Legislation (COL) is held once every three years with the 2019 cycle recently concluded in Chicago, Illinois from April 14 through April 18, 2019. 116 proposed enactments plus one RI board proposed position statement were presented, 47 were adopted, 55 were rejected and 15 were withdrawn. Of the 47 pieces of adopted legislation 6 items were of direct consequence to clubs.
Are you unsure where to start with your new member orientation? Have members learn more about Rotary and even test their knowledge with the new Rotary Basics course in the Learning Center. They’ll read about Rotarians from around the world, learn about our values and causes, and deepen their understanding of Rotary through this interactive course.

The Rotary Basics course was designed for new Rotarians, but it’s also a great refresher for other members — and even nonmembers — who want to know more about Rotary.

To take the class, use the link above. Anyone who isn’t signed in to My Rotary will be prompted to do so before going to the Learning Center.
