District 7030 News District Constitution and By-Laws Process

District Grants

by DG Hervé HONORE

In District 7030 Strategic Plan for 2013-2016, the budget mobilized for District Grants in the Rotary year 2013/2014 district is:  28 000 US$ for Rotary Clubs  4 000 US$ for Rotaract/Interact Clubs.

The proper functioning of our district must rely on rules and procedures known to all. Like the District 7020 (North Caribbean Islands), which has similar characteristics to ours (insularity, multiplicity of countries, three languages, etc.), and closest to us to our District 7030 Rotaract clubs, it is time that we have Constitution and By-laws in RI District 7030. Wishing to associate all Rotarians, the following process will be implemented so that at the next district conference (from 22nd to 26th April 2014 in Martinique), they can be ratified: • July/August 2013: establish of a first draft by DG Hervé, DGE Elwin and DGN Milton with PDGs advices • August/September 2013: clubs analyzes and amendments. • 26th October 2013: Council of Governors (DG, DGE, DGN, PDGs) et Clubs Presidents meeting to establish the Final Draft of Constitution and Bylaws (in Barbados) • November/December 2013: Draft approval by clubs during club assembly • 26th April 2014: District ratification during District Assembly.

At the end of this process, every Rotarian will know with transparency how our district is administered.

Forms must be sent to DG Hervé HONORE, PDG Cees DILWEG, as District Rotary Foundation Chair and PDG David EDWARDS, as District Grants Subcommittee Chair. We will do an update on District Grants allowed.

District Committees Quarterly newsletters District Committee Chairs are invited to realize a quarterly newsletters to: • give tools to the clubs leaders; • highlight successful clubs’ projects in their area. Congratulations in August to the District Public Relations team for their first newsletter.

Rotary Clubs News Rotary Club de Maracas/St Joseph Hand Over “Engage Rotary, Change Lives,” was the new Rotary theme for 2013-2014 as pointed out by in-coming President Julian Wilkins during his acceptance speech at The Rotary Club of Maracas / St. Joseph President’s Handover Ceremony on June 30th 2013, Great House Ortinola. Addressing fellow Rotarians and their Partners in Service, President Wilkins said, “Engage Rotary, Change Lives is a powerful theme as highlighted by Rotary International’s President Ron Burton. While there’s a lot different about Rotary today, the ethos of Rotary has remained the same which is service above self. Today is a new day, a day where we look towards serving our communities with a greater passion to make a difference.” He was congratulated by Assistant Governor Dr. Balmattie Sukha who said, “President Julian and his team like all other Rotarians are change agents and together as Rotarians we can change the lives of others. Imagine the positive impact we can have on society when we provide meals to elderly? Imagine the investment we give to children by providing stationery or training programmes? Imagine the future we are leaving for our next generation when we rally to preserve our environment?”

In Memoriam PP Claude PRUFER (RC St-Pierre) In 1972, Claude joined the Rotary Club of Saint-Pierre. He has held almost all the positions and was President in 1987/88. He received his PHF by District Governor Gerard PETIT in July 1993. Very involved in the life of the city, he was Municipal Delegate in Saint-Pierre citytown.

In Memoriam Pierre RENAISON (RC Basse-Terre) Pierre was a Rotarian for the very first time. It is part of the Group of 4 administrative advisers, with Enrique HIGUERA, Raymond-François JULIEN, Georges XAVIER and Henri THOMASSET, who were first responsible for administration of the Rotary Clubs of our region and had to manage the delicate willingness of attachment to a district of France which manifested by successive leaders of Rotary Clubs in Guadeloupe, French Guiana and Martinique. Geographical grouping of the clubs will be the criteria adopted by RI and will determine the creation of our district in 1974. Pierre RENAISON was this time there and which is francophone clubs today to be in the District 7030.
