I have just returned from the 2022 Council on Legislation in Chicago which was conducted 11 – 14 April.  84 enactments were debated over the 4 days.  There were 473 delegates, each one representing a Rotary district, and I had the privilege and pleasure of representing our District 9820.
The Council on Legislation is Rotary's version of a congress.  Every three years, representatives, selected by their districts, gather to consider proposals designed to move Rotary forward and adapt to the changing times.  Passed enactments modify the Rotary International and Club Constitutions and ByLaws.  While the Rotary International Board may suggest enactments, most emanate from Clubs and Districts throughout the world of Rotary.  The experience and the debates at the Rotary Council of Legislation were interesting and thought provoking.  Many of our colleagues from Australia and New Zealand couldn’t be here but participated in an elaborate virtual environment.
Just as rewarding I caught up with past virtual Zoom friends, and of course, face to face with our own Zone Director Jessie Harman, Past International President Ian Riseley, plus President Nominee Gordyn McInally, and Rotary Foundation Trustee Larry Lunsford.  All will be visiting Australia for the ANZ Conference in October this year.
A summary of all of the enactments and outcomes will be available soon.
