Council on Legislation concludes, approves dues increase, unlimited e-clubs

Rotary News -- 26 April 2013 

Representatives concluded the 2013 Council on Legislation Friday, where they approved a US$1-a-year increase in per capita dues, removed limits on e-clubs, and changed the name of the Fifth Avenue of Service to Youth Service.

"It has been a pleasure for me to serve you as chair and work with you this week on the legislation before the 2013 Council on Legislation," Council Chair John Germ said. "You have come with energy and thoughtfulness, and you have represented your districts well."

During the final day of deliberations Friday, the council rejected several resolutions that would have asked the RI Board of Directors to grant official recognition to programs that serve a range of different age groups, including EarlyAct, KidAct, and ElderAct.

The Four Way Test
Of the things we think, say or do:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
