The Rotary Foundation of the United Kingdom receives gift of £1.25 million from accomplished pianist and teacher

Helen Ruddock of Suffolk, England, promoted the goals and values of Rotary through her leadership, service, and integrity. Helen Ruddock of Suffolk, England bequeathed a generous donation of £1.25 million to The Rotary Foundation. Having passed away in 2015 at the age of 96, and although not a Rotarian herself, Mrs Ruddock had a passion for improving the lives of others. Her introduction to Rotary and The Rotary Foundation was made by a close friend, who was a member of the Rotary Club of Halstead for a number of years. Complying with Mrs Ruddock's wishes, the spendable earnings from...

Rotary to premiere latest virtual reality film

Following the success of its first virtual reality film, released in October, Rotary is working with Google's virtual reality team to offer an experience that showcases the impact of compassion to a global audience. We're producing a three-minute virtual reality film that emphasizes the two themes of polio and peace, and how Rotary's work to eradicate the disease is increasing stability across the world. We'll premiere the film on 13 June during the Rotary International Convention in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. It will be widely released in time for World Polio Day on 24 October. We invite...

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade

When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...

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,...

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.
