(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enactments plus one RI board proposed position statement were presented, 47 were adopted, 55 were rejected and 15 were withdrawn.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.
We were |this| close, now we are |this| close. There are, however, some glimmers of hope. The ONLY outbreak of polio due to the wild virus continues to be in the Afghanistan/Pakistan area where the Taliban is active. Recently, their spokesmen said that they will allow immunization workers to continue their work unthreatened. We sincerely hope this will bring us closer to total immunization in the area.
 
The other challenge which has surfaced recently in multiple countries is "cDVPV" infections resulting from recently immunized children passing the virus along to unimmunized children. See this page for further details.
 
 
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.
