Rotary is made up of three parts: our clubs, Rotary International, and The Rotary Foundation. Together, we work to make lasting change in our communities and around the world.

DISTRICT STRUCTURE

The District Structure reflects Rotary Internationals ‘strategic’ approach to structure. This helps optimise focus on the three strategic goals.

The District Leadership Team looks like this:

  • G-Train (collective term for DG, DGE, DGN, IPDG)

  • District Secretary (administration functions)

  • District Finance Manager (treasury, audit, insurance)

  • District Learning & Development Coordinator (DLTTS, PETS, DTA, Building Future Leaders etc.)

  • Assistant Governors x 7 (liaison between DG and Club)

  • Director - Membership (Goal 1)

  • Director - Service projects (Goal 2)

  • Director - Vocational Projects (Goal 2)

  • Director - Youth Projects (Goal 2)

  • Director - The Rotary Foundation (Goal 2)

  • Director - Public Image (Goal 3)

CLUB STRUCTURE

Rotary International’s recommended Club Structure changed in the 2016-17 Rotary year.

Instead of structuring clubs along the ‘avenues of service’ model, the recommendation now is to structure ‘strategically’.

Under this recommendation a standard club would look like this:

  • President

  • Secretary (Club Administration)

  • Director - Membership (Goal 1)

  • Director - Service Projects (Goal 2)

  • Director - The Rotary Foundation (Goal 2)

  • Director - Public Relations (Goal 3) 

From ‘District Structure’ above, you will note the District has broken ‘Service Projects’ into three components - Service, Vocational and Youth. This better reflects the activities and workload within the district.

Details on recommended Club Structures can be found in:

‘Lead Your Club -President  2016-19 Edition’ which can be accessed via My Rotary.
