Our 4th Annual Book Reading Competition took place on March 7, 2020 at the Methodist Church hall.  A total of 7 schools competed with 14 students, viewing for the coveted title of Book Reading Champion 2020.
It was the Club's pleasure to have a locally, regionally and internationally acclaimed award winning auther, motivational speaker and entrepreneur, Mrs. Chrys-Ann Ambrose as our Guest Speaker.
Mrs. Ambrose shared her expertise in the areas of Team Work, Respect and Embracing various Personalities.  Her presentation was very inspiring and motivating and we thank Mrs. Ambrose for gracing us with her presence.
The Club's first meeting was held on Wednesday, January 8, 2020.  The illustrious Ms. Shirlene Nibbs, Guest Speaker, conducted a most interesting and interactive session on Etiquette.  Members were quite excited and left the meeting in high spirits.  A big thank you to Ms.  Nibbs for her timely presentation!

District Governor Trevor Blake made his official visit to Antigua October 16-20, 2019.

 

Governor Trevor Blake  made his official visit to Antigua October 16-20, 2019.  During his visit, he met with the Governor General, the Prime Minister, the Rotary Boards, the Rotaractors and Interactors.  DG Trevor also visited the Club's projects and at the end of his duties, a Cocktails was held at Nomad Restaurant in his honour.

The District Governor was overall pleased with the status of both Clubs and the projects planned for the year.  A challenge was thrown out to both Clubs to initiate an Early Act Club.....we will see!

Rotary Club of Antigua would like to thank DG Trevor for his visit and the guidance and recommendations which we will definitely adopt!

One of Rotary International six (6) Areas of Focus is “Supporting Education” and with September identified  as “Basic  Education and Literacy Month” the first project for President Dr. Vanetta Rodgers was a Back to School Initiative which was executed in partnership with Digicel Antigua as the Corporate Sponsor. 
 
A number of back packs with school supplies were distributed to several students in the four school zones during the first week of school, September 3rd and September 5th 2019. A new school term has begun and the Rotary Club of Antigua played its role in ensuring that our nation's youth are well equipped to manage the subjects on the academic calendar.
 
We thank Digicel Antigua for its corporate support!!
 

Every three years, Rotarians from around the world meet at the Council on Legislation to review and vote on proposed changes to the legislation that governs Rotary. They consider enactments, which change Rotary’s governing documents, and position statements by the RI Board.  Councils give Rotary members a voice in how our organization is governed. Learn more about the Council on Legislation and the Council on Resolutions on our Council web page or read our live blog of the 2019 Council. 

The 2019 Council on Legislation may not have made as many dramatic changes as the Council three years ago did, but it made several decisions that will shape the future of Rotary.

Among the most important, the Council elevated the status of Rotaract clubs.  The change broadens the definition of membership in Rotary International to include Rotaract clubs. The change is intended to increase the support that Rotaract clubs receive from RI and to enhance their ability to serve.

“We need to be an inspiration to our young partners, so they will continue doing the great service that they do,” said RI President Barry Rassin when he presented the measure. “This sends a strong message that they are truly our partners in service.”

In many ways, the Rotaract experience will not change. Rotary clubs will still charter and sponsor Rotaract clubs. Rotaract clubs will still have their own standard constitution and their own unique club experience. Members of a Rotaract club will not be called Rotarians. And Rotaract clubs will not immediately pay dues or receive other benefits, such as the official magazine that Rotary members receive. The Board will determine a dues structure over time.

The measure simply expands the definition of membership in Rotary International to include both Rotary and Rotaract clubs. 

Every three years, representatives from Rotary districts around the world meet in Chicago, Illinois, USA, to consider changes to the constitutional documents that govern Rotary International. This year’s Council considered more than 100 proposals.

Representatives authorized the Board to pursue changing RI’s charitable status to a section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. It is presently a 501(c)(4). A task force has been studying the possible change for 18 months and says it will offer benefits that include tax reductions and vendor discounts that will reduce expenses.
