nugGETs Vol. 2 Issue 4 October from RI Director Guiller E Tumangan and Rotary Leaders of Zones 7A, 7B, and 8
In the Board Meeting, each Director endeavored to use the data on Rotary Club Central when we reported about our Zones. The number of clubs participating is still below the key performance indicator (KPI) set. India registered very high participation. I reported on what D3830 did in the past two years. A Deputy Secretary (DES) was appointed by the district governor to train and assist AGs and club officers. Also, in “sit by me” fashion, the DES mentored the club president, secretary or secretariat and helped edit when necessary. Like the District Governor, the DES can view and edit district and club data, that is why, DES has to sign a confidentiality agreement.
At the request of an RI Director, the Club and District Administration team simplified the procedure so that district secretaries can gain access to Rotary Club Central and immediately assist the district governor in enabling clubs in goal setting and performance tracking with the use of the Rotary Club Central. Mary Jane Desmond of Parramatta office
and Jennifer Coburn promptly sent this email to the district governors of Zones 7 & 8:
District Secretary's Online Access and Delegation to
MY ROTARY DISTRICT ADMINISTRATION AND ROTARY CLUB CENTRAL“We would like to advise that there is now a simpler way of giving the District Secretary the same online access as that of a District Governor. All you have to do is send an email
to email@example.com requesting this. Include in the email the following details of the District Secretary:
Name, Member ID Number (if known), and Rotary Club Name” Once they have received the request, an email will be sent to the potential District Secretary with a copy to the district governor. They will go ahead and complete the process as soon as the acknowledgement email is received from the District Secretary. The District Secretary and District Governor will be notified as soon as the process is completed. Thank you District Governors, for your quick action.
The first End Polio beaming was a public image initiative of D3830 when it joined the rest of the Rotary world. On the second year, it was in observance of World Understanding and Peace Month to coincide with the Annual Peace Awards.
Then, the project was adopted by the Zone 7A Public Image Committee with the 10 Rotary Districts as One Rotary Philippines' unified stand to End Polio.
This year's beaming activity has become a joint commitment of the Zone 7A’s Public Image, Rotary Foundation, End Polio Now Coordinators and the 10 districts in the Philippines. Thus, this Rotary Year's beaming is a source of pride and joy because there are just two more countries left in the fight against polio and Zone 7A has come together with just one message: End Polio forever. We thank SM Mall of Asia for being a sustainable corporate partner, giving Rotary one week to use this giant globe.
RECOMMENDED PROCESS FOR ESTABLISHING ROTARY SATELLITE CLUBSadapted from email of RI Club & District Support, Parramatta Office – 3 September, 2015 At the 2013 Council on Legislation, the concept of Satellite Clubs (Satellites) was approved.
What it is An extension of a sponsor club and offers an alternative meeting day/time, and/or place to the sponsor club. It is anticipated that Satellite will aim to become a club in its own right and this should be at the right time.
Purpose(s) 1) Offer an alternative meeting day/time and /or place
2) Build a new club in a new community or in a smaller rural and remote communities
3) Improve diversity in demographics
4) Have alternative meeting model
5) Develop/refine e-based club but smaller; or an e-club satellite THUS, A Satellite Club can be either a traditional club or an e-club.
Membership Minimum of 8; no maximum number of members. A club shall be composed of active members each of whom shall be an adult person of good character and good business, professional and/or community reputation and possess the qualifications for membership stated in the RI Constitution Art 5 Section 2.
Initial Initial members of the Satellite are circulated to the Sponsor Club for endorsement. Any rejection Recruitment requires advice to the Satellite Board as to why it is rejected. Subsequent recruits of the Satellite are approved within the Satellite. Members of the Sponsor Club wishing to transfer to the Satellite Club are free to do so.
MUSTs: Satellite Club’s name in line with their Sponsor Club’s and locality is easily identifiable on a Naming map. A club can have an additional qualifier after the locality name Constitution The sponsor club should have in its Constitution a provision for Satellites as set down in the 2013 Standard Rotary Club Constitution. The satellite can establish its own By-Laws Officers Term of Chair of Satellite is normally for a full year. Satellite selects a Chair and a Chair-Elect. Other officers are Immediate Past Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. 2 Officers of the satellite club and four to six other members as the bylaws shall provide. Chair presides club and Board meetings. Chair-elect prepares for his/her year in office and serves as a director. The current Chair will be automatically the Immediate Past Chair and the current Chair Elect will become the Chair – a total of five officers.
Secretary keeps membership/attendance records. Treasurer oversee all funds; renders annual accounting.
Governance 1. Satellite Board acts as governing body. Club has a strong mentor relationship with Sponsor Club.
Satellite cannot change sponsor club. The Sponsor Club Mentor should work with the leadership team of the Satellite in developing procedures and appropriate structures for projects/activities of the club.
2. Club Oversight. The sponsoring club shall provide such general oversight and support of this satellite club as is deemed appropriate by the board. The Board of the Satellite Club should be represented on the Board of the Sponsor Club by one person – recommended to be the Satellite Club Chair.
3. The Board of the Satellite are responsible for its operations in conjunction with its members. Where there is a dispute between the Board and its sponsor club, the Sponsor Club Board shall have the final say in disagreements. Election is at its Annual General Meeting (preferably before Nov. 30) and follows the Rotary Year --1 July to 30 June and copy to the District Governor Satellite Application Format from Club & District Support at Parramatta. This should be signed by the Approval President and Secretary of the Sponsor Club and the Chair and Secretary of the Satellite Club. Whilst formally the Club does not require the approval of the District Governor, it is recommended that their support is sought and provided as this will also encourage the Assistant Governor to link into the group as a resource. This is one of the key questions frequently posed and the following will offer an insight: The Members are Rotarians immediately and feel they are part of the Rotary family and can take advantage of the benefits of membership such as visit to other clubs, attendance in Conventions, fellowships & networks; etc. The club can commence its activities immediately The approval process is quick and streamlined – RI approves and sends an approval letter
