Secretary Bill MacKay provided the club an update on the Council on Legislation held April 12 - 15 in Chicago.  534 Rotary districts were represented and 117 proposed enactments were presented to amend the Rotary Constitution which would directly affect how clubs were  organized.  The last council in 2013 was responsible for the changes that have allowed for our club to create a Satellite Club and more recently the Council agreed to when and how often clubs can meet as well as removing the definition of a meeting to allow for more modern technological options.  Changes to attendance policy which now has an attendance rate of 50% as a requirement and the  ability for members to receive make ups for all committee meetings attended.  In addition Bill mentioned that consideration was being given to new types of Rotary membership, including corporate, family and associate memberships.
 
Bill closed with the only approved resolution to be realized at the 2016 Council of Legislation which is the primary corporate objective of the eradication of Polio on earth.  Until this goal is realized there will be no other goals entertained at the corporate level for Rotary International.
