Message from the District Governor: Dr Stella Anyangwe
31 October 2021
The month of October has been a very busy one in D9400, with a loaded calendar of events. The month started with a very successful virtual ICC RYLA that included participants from D9210, D9400 and our partners in Germany and Switzerland. Two weeks later, the RC Brits-Hartbeespoort hosted a well-attended and successful physical RYLA in Hartbeespoort. The International Day of the Girl Child (11th October) served to highlight RI President Shekhar’s initiative for Empowering Girls, and the Initiative’s Assistant Ambassadors for each of the 4 countries in our District were at work, under the leadership of their coordinator, DGE Koekie, and the Initiative’s Ambassador for Region 28, IPDG Annemarie. Not to forget that October was also Breast Cancer Awareness month, and pink ribbons adorned everything. Our newest satellite club (Rotary Club of Pretoria West Satellite club UHURU), chartered only in September, is already working hard on its project on childhood cancers at the Dr George Mukhari Academic Hospital in Pretoria. Rotarians across the District celebrated World Polio Day (24th October), Rotary’s highlight for the month of October.....
 
O mês de Outubro foi muito intenso no D9400, com um calendário cheio de eventos. O mês começou com um muito bem sucedido ICC RYLA que incluiu participantes dos D9210, D9400 e os nossos parceiros da Alemanha e Suiça. Duas semanas depois, o RC de RC Brits-Hartbeespoort acolheu em Hartbeespoort um RYLA presencial bem sucedido e com boa participação. O Dia Internacional da Rapariga ( 11 de Outubro) serviu para sublinhar a Iniciativa do Presidente Shekhar do RI de Empoderamento de Raparigas bem como a Iniciativa das Assistentes de Embaixadoras em cada um dos 4 países do nosso Distrito que já funciona liderada pela sua Coordenadora, a DGE Koekie, e a Iniciativa da Embaixadora para a Região 28, a IPDG Annemarie. Sem deixar de referir que Outubro também foi o mês de Consciencialização sobre o Cancro da Mama com as fitas cor de rosa a enfeitarem tudo.
O nosso mais novo clube satélite (o Satellite club UHURU do Rotary Club de Pretória West), estabelecido em Setembro, já está empenhado a trabalhar  seriamente no projecto de cancros infantis no Hospital Universitário Dr. George Mukhari em Pretória.....

Resolutions from various districts Worldwide were sent to RI and all the Representatives of the Council on Resolutions (COR) as well as Council of Legislation (COL) had to cast their votes online.  The results came out recently and can be viewed by going to www.MyRotary.org  to the Learning and reference centre section.   
 
centre section.    You can then scroll to Policies and Procedures.   When you then click on that, it will take you to Council on Legislation and Resolutions. Or simply click here, which links directly to Councils of Legislation and all the Resolutions.
 
Resolutions of interest are:  20R – 10; 20R – 11; 20R – 13; 20R – 14; 20R – 25
 
The latter resolution is especially noteworthy:  20R – 25 was proposed by D9370 and endorsed through a district legislation meeting held in Cape Town in February 2020; it deals with the selection of Regional Leaders. This has at last been approved and henceforth, it is incumbent on the Rl Directors to consult with all their relevant District's leadership before appointing members to the various Regional and Zone positions - such as the Rotary Regional Coordinator, the Regional Rotary Public Image Coordinator etc.
