The RI Constitution, RI Bylaws, and Standard Rotary Club Constitution provide the foundation for RI’s policies and procedures and can be changed only through a Council on Legislation. Every club and district is entitled to propose amendments to constitutional documents by submitting legislation to the Council on Legislation. Some of Rotary’s most important work results from Council actions. The constitutional documents can be found in the Manual of Procedure.
Club and district leaders can use the Manual of Procedure to better understand Rotary and the policies and procedures relevant to their responsibilities. The RI Board of Directors also issues policy decisions that are compiled in the Rotary Code of Policies.
