We were honoured to have PDG Anthony Hung to speak to us on the very interesting subject of ‘Essential Changes of Rotary International 2016 Council on Legislation’ at the last meeting. Changes include flexibilities for meeting schedules, attendance, membership and classification, making up and excused absences. The issues that interest us most are those of a minimum of 2 meetings per month and no admission fee required from 1 July 2016. The rational behind these changes are obvious that we can attract more members. You can see from the attached photos that the topic aroused lots of interest and questions from the floor. Our Club will further discuss if we need to change our current mode of weekly meetings to twice a month or we stay the way we are now.
