Secretaries Newsletter for August 2011


By Webmaster - Posted on 16 August 2011

Change of Meeting day for Tamworth Club:Tamworth now meet on Tuesday evenings at 18.00 at the same venue as published in the Directory

Changes of addresses/emails are only included in the downloadable version to protect privacy.

Don’t forget the 1st District Council of the 2011/12 Rotary year. Date is 21st September at the Arden School, Knowle, Solihull. Commences at 7.00pm prompt with coffee, tea and biscuits available from 6.30pm. An Agenda with minutes of the last meeting will be sent out in the next week or so. Ballot papers for the election of Assistant Governors will also follow. Please try and ensure your Club is represented.

Change of Meeting day: Please note that if any Club is considering a change of regular meeting day or time then prior approval of the RIBI Secretariat is required. There is a form on the RIBI web site (Club.02) which can be downloaded and has to be countersigned by the District Secretary and the District Governor.

A reminder that the RI Institute is to be held on the eastern edge of the District 1060 from the 18th to 20th November at the Barcelo Hinckley Island Hotel. I have established that the cost of registration from Friday through to Sunday lunch for refreshments all day and lunches is £170. There is no day registration because it is a fully integrated programme. Details of accommodation costs can be found during the registration process. There is no commitment until you press the “submit for payment” button at the end of the process.

Thanks to all those who have let me have details of members leaving or joining your Clubs. Don’t forget returns can be made on line, by e mail or by post.

I hope you noticed the note from RIBI in July to Club Secretaries announcing that “Insurance and the Rotary Club 2011” has now been published on line. Public liability cover has been increased to £20 million and Trustees Indemnity inner limit has been increased to £500,000. Constitutional documents are also available as updated at April 2011. All items are available at www.ribi.org/resources as will be the updated edition of the “Manual for Incoming Club Officers” in the near future.

Notice of holiday arrangement is included in the private, printable version, attached.
