RIBI Polices 2017/2018:
Each year, Clubs are asked to sign the annual Compliance Statement form and return it to the District Secretary. This form is intended to be a reminder to Clubs about their responsibility to protect themselves, and others, in all Rotary activities and projects, in regard to four areas of compliance:
1. Health and Safety
2. Equality and Diversity
4. Data Protection.
Would Club Secretaries kindly arrange for the 2017/2018 Compliance Confirmation Form to be signed by both the 2017/2018 President and Secretary, and to forward such the District Secretary, please?
Remember, in the event of a claim being proven against a Club where insurance cover is not in place, each Club Member is jointly and severally liable.
District Executive Committee met on 30th May 2017 and unanimously resolved to create a Trust Fund and to apply both the capital and income derived therefrom to, or for, the relief of the families affected by the Manchester Arena bombing or such other charitable purpose as the District may, from time to time, direct.
Full particulars were sent to all Club Secretaries on 30th May.
The Trust Fund is to be called "The Manchester Arena Families Trust.
The Trustees are:
1. District Governor, Stan Bowes; and
2. District Treasurer, Roger Glew; and
3. District Secretary, PDG Graham Jackson
The Trustees have executed the Trust Deed and completed the appropriate bank mandate forms.
Kindly note, that with immediate effect, monies can be paid to District Treasurer Roger for this specific trust. If Clubs, or individuals, wish to make donations, then please forward such to District Treasurer Roger.
CAN YOU HELP?
Is there any Rotarian in the District who has any Archivist experience? If so, could they please contact District Secretary ? Some work and advice is needed in respect of the archive material held from both of the former Districts.
Your help would be greatly appreciated
District Secretary PDG Graham Jackson
