Administration is a key portfolio of the Rotary Club. Its purpose is twofold:
  • To ensure the effective functioning of the Club, providing service to others and satisfaction and fulfilment to members, and
  • To manage unintended outcomes caused by the routine and project activities of Rotary.
Effective functioning of the Club involves: developing a structured weekly meeting program, identifying and liaising with guest speakers, managing the weekly meeting through the Sergeant at Arms and keeping members informed of these matters.
Programs that mitigate unintended outcomes are: risk management, insurance and the development and implementation of child protection and conflict resolution policies.
The District Secretary, Treasurer and Public Relations Committee are responsible for some aspects of administration and risk.  These include: member recording and reporting to RI, governance and privacy risk, financial risk and internet risk. Coordination between Committees is required to ensure these issues are managed effectively.
