Message from the District Governor:
Dr Stella Anyangwe
“Serve to change lives” is the clarion call that we, the CHANGE-MAKER team of Rotary leaders for 2021-22, received from our team leader, RI President Shekhar Mehta. So, on 1July 2021, we hit the ground running in District 9400, with the Change-Maker team of District Chairs, AGs, Club Officials and all Rotarians, to answer that clarion call.
Our District goals are no different from RI goals for this year: grow membership, give more to the Rotary Foundation, improve service.
The catchy phrases to remind us of these goals are:
  • “Each one, bring one”
  • “Give more, grow more”
  • “Grow more to do more”
  • “We have the power and the magic to change lives”
Our District’s and my goals for the year are the following”
  • Grow our membership to at least 1,300 members
  • Ensure that ALL CLUBS donate to the Rotary Foundation (Annual Fund and PolioPlus), so that there are NO NON-GIVING CLUBS in our District.
  • Enthuse clubs and Rotarians to serve with joy and mirth: “Enjoy Rotary!”.
The RI President’s Initiatives for the year 2021-22 are the following:
  • Empowerment of Girls
  • Rotary Days
  • Presidential Conferences

Council on Resolution
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  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.
