  1. Club meetings should be non-partisan. Just because we have a common goal of serving our communities and world does not mean that we have the same ideologies. World peace should begin in our individual clubs. If one side of an issue is presented, time must be given for an opposing view. Rotarians should never feel uncomfortable in their own club meetings.

  2. I have noticed that some members of our club have stepped away because they can’t hear well in the meeting rooms. If Rotary as an organization took up the issue of hearing accessibility, it would make a huge impact nationally and internationally. Insisting that all meetings be held in facilities with an assistive listening system, preferably a hearing loop, would mean that we don’t lose that brain trust of members who fade away simply because they can’t hear. Hearing loops are the same the world over, and all that the Rotarian with a hearing aid or cochlear implant needs to do is to turn on their telecoil program in order to hear in a looped setting – be it London, Sydney, or Eugene!

    1. You raise a good point, Ginevra. I just got back from Zone Institute in Salt Lake City. There were 600 Rotarians there, so you can imagine the din at dinner. I saw many people leaning forward and cupping their ears to try to hear better.
