To: All Rotarian Action Group Officers

Dear Rotarians:

At the recommendation of the Rotarian Action Groups Committee, the RI Board recently decided to expand membership eligibility in Rotarian Action Groups. In addition to Rotarians and family members of Rotarians, anyone who has participated in a Rotary or Foundation program at some point in their lives is now eligible to join a RAG. This broader category will continue to include Rotaractors as well as participants and alumni of all other Rotary and Foundation programs, past and present, including (but not limited to):

  •  Interact
  • Rotaract
  • Rotary Youth Exchange
  • Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)
  • Rotary Peace Fellowships
  • Global Grant Scholarships
  • Vocational training teams (members and leaders)
  • District Grant scholarships
  • New Generations Service Exchange
  • Rotary Foundation awards to individuals in former TRF programs, such as:
  • Ambassadorial Scholarships
  • Grants for University Teachers
  • Group Study Exchange
  • Rotary Volunteers

We are excited about this development, which we hope will strengthen your groups and create new opportunities to engage those touched by Rotary programs and keep them involved in Rotary.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Best regards,

Jesse Allerton

Supervisor | Rotary Service Connections
