Rotary Zone 8 Regionalisation

A resource for members and friends

With a century of service under our belt and support of the Rotary International Board, we’re ensuring Rotary continues to do good and flourish in our region with a more contemporary structure. It aims to better support clubs and members to connect with more volunteers, develop leadership skills and collaborate with one another and our communities to change the world.

A pilot program is proposed for Rotary Zone 8, which includes Australia, New Zealand, American Samoa, Cook Islands, Fiji, French Polynesia, Kiribati, New Caledonia, Norfolk Island, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Timor Leste, Tonga and Vanuatu.

On the 13th April 2022 the Council on Legislation voted strongly in favour of a pilot being undertaken in Zone 8 on the basis our clubs and districts support this happening by 1st October 2022. The plan is to explore, test and develop a framework developed by the Board's Shaping Rotary's Future Committee to confirm what works and what doesn't in our Zone. If the pilot proceeds, it will occur whilst districts remain in place and in full consultation with districts and clubs.

Creating tomorrow - for all of us

This will be a a project that embraces the future for Rotary, but will also need to hold onto the important parts of our history as well
