2016 Council on Legislation Issues Sweeping Report

Every three years, Rotarians meet at the Council on Legislation to review and vote on proposed governance legislation.

The 2016 Council on Legislation met in Chicago in mid April. An official report of action has now been compiled and is being sent to clubs, and posted online. Clubs have an opportunity to record opposition to any action during the following two months. If at least 5 percent of the votes entitled to be cast by the clubs oppose an action, the legislation is suspended and the general secretary conducts a ballot-by-mail. A majority vote would cause the proposal to be rejected. Deadline to register opposition to an action is August 1, 2016.
