Monthly Attendance Report
 
Rotary uses Club Attendance as a measure of the effectiveness of our weekly club meetings. Rotary recognizes that clubs that consistently provide dynamic speakers, good food, outstanding fellowship and an attractive venue will have higher attendance and better make-up compliance for their weekly meetings. For that reason, clubs are requested to report their monthly attendance to the District Secretary. The District Secretary is expected to report monthly attendance for the entire district in on the District 5790 Website and in the Quarterly Squeaky wheel. Listed below is the most recent reports for Mau 2015. During the month of May, 15 District 5790 Rotary Clubs did not report their attendance results.

What are the responsibilities of membership?

Members are expected to attend weekly club meetings. They must pay annual dues to their clubs, their Rotary district, and Rotary International, and they’re expected to participate in local or international Rotary club activities or projects. Clubs encourage members to aspire to club leadership or committee roles.

What are the attendance requirements?

An attendance record of 50 percent is required to remain an active Rotarian. Any missed meeting must be made up within 14 days before or after the regular meeting. To accommodate busy schedules, there are various opportunities to make up missed meetings .
