Rotary and the coronavirus impact

Rotary and the coronavirus impact

The Rotary International Board of Directors has decided not to fund any expenses (travel or otherwise) for in-person meetings for Rotary leaders for the rest of this Rotary year, other than for the president, president-elect, and trustee chair.

The decision applies to directors, trustees, regional leaders, district governors, assistant governors, and other leaders. The Board also agreed to conduct all of its meetings and RI committee meetings virtually for the rest of the Rotary year; and we will be holding the 2021 Rotary Convention virtually.

The directors made this difficult decision out of an abundance of caution — and in keeping with Rotary's commitment to protect the health of our members, our employees, and our families. With the coronavirus pandemic still raging in many part of the world, and extensive public health measures and travel restrictions in place, Rotary has a clear responsibility in mitigating the threat of COVID-19, as an organization that is at the forefront of polio eradication efforts and fighting other diseases.

Check the COVID-19 webpage (https://www.rotary.org/.../rotary-and-coronavirus-impact...) for further information or contact your RI staff liaison if you have questions about the Board's decision.
