2019 Council on Resolutions Report
Hello District leaders, Club Presidents, and fellow Rotarians. As your representative for the Council on Legislation and the Council on Resolutions (2017-2020), it is a pleasure to inform you that 33 Resolutions were considered in 2019 and from them, 26 were not approved. Therefore 7 Resolutions will pass to the RI Board or TRF Trustees for their consideration. RI Board and THF Trustees have the discretion to accept and implement these approved resolutions. The Council on Resolutions (COR) meets online each year.
If any Rotary Club would like to participate in the Council on Resolutions in 2020, please read the information below:
Council on Resolutions
Rotary International’s Council on Resolutions meets online each year to vote on proposed resolutions submitted by clubs, districts, the RI Board, and the general council or conference of RIBI and any urgent enactments proposed by the RI Board. Adopted resolutions are then considered by the RI Board or the TRF Trustees. Every district designates a representative to the Council on Resolutions and every club and district may propose resolutions. If your club or district is considering proposing a resolution for the Council on Resolutions, please follow the guidelines below.
Deadline to Submit Resolutions
Proposed resolutions from clubs and districts for the Council on Resolutions must be received by Rotary International on or before 30 June prior to the Council on Resolutions, including the governor’s confirmation of endorsement. There are no exceptions to the deadline.
Proposing Resolutions
Resolutions are expressions of opinion of the Council. They can be submitted to the Council on Resolutions by clubs, districts, the RI Board, and the general council or conference of RIBI. However, a resolution proposed by a club must also be voted on, or endorsed, by the clubs in its district at its district conference, a district legislation meeting, or through a ballot-by-mail, before it can be submitted to Rotary. Resolutions must be submitted by 30 June through the online form found on the Councils page of My Rotary.
