Hello District 7390 Rotarians!

I am honored to serve for one more term as the District 7390 Council on Legislation Representative. The COL term goes from July 1st, 2020 to June 30, 2023. Thank you very much to all of you for your trust and confidence for me to serve in this important position as Council on Resolutions and Council on Legislation Representative on behalf of D7390. I am humbled for this nomination and I will work with the best of my
abilities to fulfill these responsibilities. As you may know, there are now two ways to actively participate in the Rotary International decision making process: Council on Resolutions (COR) and the Council on Legislation (COL).

Council on Resolutions (COR)
The Council on Resolutions meets online every year to vote on proposed resolutions. Resolutions are requests to the Board or the Trustees to take any action that is outside the purview of the constitutional documents. Ideally, a resolution should affect the Rotary world, rather than address local or administrative issues. Council on Resolutions (COR) are held annually, voted by the COR and implemented by the RI Board of Directors.  Remember that Districts can submit resolutions for the 2020 COR by June 30, 2020. Details on drafting and submitting resolutions can be found here. 
 
Council on Legislation (COL)
Every three years, Rotarians meet at the Council on Legislation to review and vote on proposed changes to the legislation that governs Rotary. They consider enactments, which change Rotary‚Äôs governing documents, and position statements by the RI Board. Our District can also propose enactments to the 2022 Council on Legislation. Details on drafting and submitting enactments can be found here. It means legislation change to three fundamental documents: The Standard Constitution of a Rotary Club, RI Constitution, and RI Bylaws. Enactments for the 2022 Council on Legislation must be submitted through the COL RI online form by 31 December 2020.

Thanks in advance for your consideration of this matter. As District 7390 COR and COL representative, I will keep you informed of the COR and COL advancement. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at Richie1166@msn.com. 

Sincerely,
Hector R. Ortiz
