2016 MANUAL OF PROCEDURE
 
The purpose of the Manual of Procedure is to provide Rotary leaders with the Rotary policies that are most relevant to their service. The manual is published every three years after the Council on Legislation. A copy is provided to each Rotary club and Rotary officer. If any questions arise about the meaning or interpretation of the manual, including the RI Constitution and other governance documents, the English-language version of these materials is the official text.
 
The manual contains the following governance documents:
• RI Constitution
• RI Bylaws
• Standard Rotary Club Constitution
• Recommended Rotary Club Bylaws
• Bylaws of The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International
 
Rotarians can also find policies and procedures in the Rotary Code of Policies and The Rotary Foundation Code of Policies on the Rotary website. These documents are revised after each Board and Trustee meeting. In addition, a supplemental Resource Guide is available on the Governance Documents page of the Rotary website. This guide provides a list of additional resources and reference materials that Rotarians will find helpful in leading their clubs and districts.
 
For assistance with policy questions, please contact your Club and District Support representative (www.rotary.org/cds).
