An Important Message from Rotary International regarding flexibility:
Rotary International Council on Legislation has approved major updates in Membership flexibility – flexibility in Meeting Format, Meeting Attendance Requirement, and Membership Types.  Club leadership team is encouraged to adopt flexible measures according to club culture and local needs to effectively implement best practices in membership retention and attraction. It is up to each Club Board to decide how the Club wants to adopt the new flexible options.  The following are suggestions of five ways a club can implement flexibility in Membership:
1) Change your meeting schedule.
2) Vary your meeting format.
3) Relax attendance requirements.
4) Offer multiple membership types.
5) Invite Rotaractors to be members of your club.
There are no "set" policies, guidelines, and requirements for membership flexibility, as long as the rules don't conflict with Rotary International general rules. This means that individual clubs can have unique membership types and flexible meeting requirements, depending on individual Club culture and needs.
The files listed on the left hand side of the page will assist you and your club in taking advantage of the new flexible definitions of clubs and meetings.
