John Wall will provide an update on the Regionalisation Pilot

Rotary International is considering a project to address membership, public image, communication, leadership, and fundraising challenges to help define a more sustainable future for Rotary.

Our region, or Zone 8, which includes Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands, has been selected as one of two potential regions from across the globe to pilot a regional approach to governance.

It is important that you, our fellow Rotarians, are consulted throughout this process. In fact, the project cannot proceed without the support of members and clubs.

A local Regionalisation team made up of Rotarians from our zone has identified five key project objectives:

- Support clubs to engage members, volunteers, and communities
- Create new attractive leadership roles and development opportunities
- Build a stronger unified Rotary brand
- Encourage partnerships
- Improve efficiencies and reduce duplication.

To help achieve these objectives, the project seeks to develop and test a streamlined governance approach to:

• Allow clubs sharing geography, culture, and language to organise in ways that suit them.
• Eliminate duplication and remove layers of hierarchy to make Rotary more responsive and cost effective
• Bring together the best resources from across the region and make them easily accessible to every club.
• Improve communication effectiveness to enhance club and member engagement.
• Grow membership through new club types, flexibility, and partnership options reflecting our diversity.
• Attract more community, corporate, and government sector support by communicating with one voice.
• Enhance leadership and personal development activities to better suit our modern world.
• Foster more diverse perspectives in decision making.
• Reduce the burden of administrative responsibilities placed upon leaders.
