The U.S. Rotary Club and District Liability Insurance Program automatically provides US Rotary clubs and districts with general liability ("GL") and directors' and officers'/employment practices liability ("D&O/EPL") insurance.  It is paid for by U.S. Rotarians on the July Semi-annual Report.  For clubs needing insurance for an event, please view the "Liability Insurance for Clubs" document.  There are a couple changes for the 2014-15 year.

Every three years Rotary International’s Council on Legislation meets to debate and vote on legislation submitted by clubs, districts, the RI Board, and the general council or conference of RIBI.  The Council has the authority to amend RI’s constitutional documents, as well as adopt resolutions.  Every district sends one representative to the Council, and every club and district may propose legislation.  If your club or district is considering proposing legislation for the Council, please follow the guidelines below.
It is now time to submit nominations for the next District Governor Nominee.  The DG year for the individual selected would be July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018.
A new category this year for the Presidential Citation is Light Up the Family of Rotary! and there is no better way to light up Rotarians than through hosting or participating in a Rotary Days Event!  
If you had the opportunity to attend an event with RI President Gary C.K. Huang, you heard his passion about Rotary Days – having fun and creating new ways to positively present rotary in our communities.
Rotary International has provide a Rotary Days Brochure and the Rotary Days information is briefly mentioned in the 2014-15 Presidential Citation Brochure.
Rotary District 5650 has outlined some additional criteria and guidelines for events to qualify as Rotary Days events. 
There is an entire page on this website dedicated to Rotary Days, located just to your left under the "Site Pages" heading.  We hope that you will share your photos and event information so that we can fill this page with ideas and success stories!
