      January 2013 Board Meeting Highlights



      The third meeting of the 2012–13 RI Board of Directors was held on 20–23 January 2013 in La Jolla, California, USA. At this meeting the Board reviewed 8 committee reports and recorded 53 decisions.


      Club and District Matters

      The Board considered numerous districting issues and agreed that four districts in Argentina will be consolidated into two districts effective 1 July 2014; and, effective 1 July 2015, six districts in England will be consolidated into three districts, and one district in Denmark/Lithuania will split into two new districts. Other districts that are under the minimum membership requirements will be asked to provide and update and plan for membership growth to the Board at its June 2013 meeting.


      Programs, Communications, and Awards

      Noting the opportunity to promote the work of RI at a world's exhibition, the Board authorized the general secretary to finalize an agreement with Expo Milano for RI's participation in the 2015 world's exhibition in Milan, Italy.

      The Board approved development of a new member sponsor recognition pin that will be distributed to sponsors from RI Headquarters. This new recognition pin replaces the current "Each Rotarian: Reach One, Keep One" recognition pin program.

      The Board recognized the Rotarian Action Group Against Child Slavery and the Rotarians for Hearing Rotarian Action Group.


      International Meetings

      The Board approved an International RYLA to meet on 26–29 May 2014 in conjunction with the Sydney convention.


      Administration and Finances

      Recognizing that polio eradication is RI's top priority, the Board authorized a 2013–14 expenditure of US$5 million from general surplus funds to The Rotary Foundation for polio eradication efforts.
