A Special District Assembly will take place during the weekend of April 20th-22nd. During this online event, your club Elector(s) will vote on a new Rotary District 5750 Manual of Procedure and By-Laws.  The proposed new By-Laws would amend an earlier version last updated in 2007. The proposed Manual of Procedure is a new document. 
This online Special District Assembly allows your club Elector(s) to vote online during a roughly 3-day time frame. Three days is way more than the hour or so that is normally given to do a vote of this type. Since the voting will take place online, no personal appearance to a central and possibly inconvenient location is necessary. And, as with physical location voting, if no vote is entered by your club Elector it will be as if your Elector was a no-show. 

You can find the current By-Laws, as well as the proposed By-Laws and Manual of Procedure under "District Documents" here

Please remember that it's our intention for all of our clubs to show this news video 1 time per month during the club meeting of your choice. Larger clubs can show this on a widescreen TV format; smaller clubs may want to just have members gather around a laptop and view this. How you do it is up to you. If you download the video before your meeting to a USB or something similar, you won't need internet access to play it. If you need any assistance with playing the video at a club meeting, please contact your assigned Director of Technology.
