Dear Club Leaders,
Recently, the Rotary world was notified of RI Board decisions affecting the
club invoice that will occur beginning January 2015. The result of these
decisions is a simple and clear invoice sent to clubs each semiannual
period that is driven by timely membership updates. Detailed information
about these changes are --
Rotary members have been asking for a simpler dues process that will
eliminate uncertainty about reporting and outstanding balances. We've heard
you and are rolling out improvements in 2015.
NEW PROCESS EASIER FOR CLUBS
Beginning 1 January 2015, clubs will receive a one-page invoice that
clearly states the amount owed for subscriptions, membership dues, and
outstanding balances. Club officers will no longer need to recalculate
bills, make adjustments, or fill out the eight-part semiannual report
BETTER NEW MEMBER EXPERIENCE
To improve the new member experience, club secretaries are asked to
register new and terminated members within 30 days, and to report incoming
club officers by 1 February of each year. With more accurate membership
records, Rotary can provide better service to clubs. For example, the
sooner a club secretary reports a new member, the sooner this member will
receive a welcome kit from Rotary Informing privileges of
To begin planning for these improvements, Rotary is asking club and
district officers to share the new invoicing and reporting policies with
club members, and to prepare their clubs for monthly reporting. Also,
encourage your club members to immediately report changes to their
membership status to club officers, so this information can be updated in
your club's membership records.
The existing SAR process will remain in place until 1 January 2015, and all
the related materials will continue to be available through the website.
