Steve and I continue to be excited and impressed with all the great things happening in our District 6000 Rotary clubs and communities as we have visited nearly half the clubs in the district. We are sharing our thoughts and experiences on how to make Rotary more visible, more attractive and more inclusive and use this tool as a way to build excitement toward our District 6000 Festival to be held in late June of 2020.
Be sure to read, use and share the information, whether it’s the podcast, videos, stories and/or pictures.
We are looking forward to coming to your club.

Greetings from Evanston! After Council on Legislation, we put together a document that describes some of the changes that clubs or districts will see with the start of the new Rotary Year. CLICK HERE to view this document. A few things to note:
  1. Even though there were many more items that passed, a lot of them had to do with the overall organization. This document highlights what’s happening at the club and district levels. For a full overview of the COL, Rotarians could either check in with your COL Reps or visit My Rotary (
  2. You’ll see that page 1 of the document discusses that the language in Standard Rotary Club Constitution (SRCC) will be modernized to make it more accessible. It also asks the reader head to My Rotary to download a copy. We’re still in the process of streamlining the SRCC and expect it’ll be posted soon.
  3. In line with number 2 above, the 2019 Manual of Procedure (MOP) is also being drafted. Traditionally, the English version of the MOP has released in the fall (usually October) with translated versions to follow in winter. We expect the same timing this year, and will let you know when the new edition has been released. We’re expecting that it will release as an electronic PDF rather than a printed version.
John Hannes and Geoff Cocharon, R.I. Support
