Interact Organization and Meetings Beyond the Club Level
Governors are requested to appoint Interact committees, composed of Rotarians from various parts of the district, to assist the governor in publicizing the Interact program, promoting the organization of new Interact clubs, and administering the program of Interact within the district. Where feasible and practicable in the appointment of district Interact committees, there should be provision for continuity of membership by appointing one or more members for a second term. Rotary district Interact committees, in carrying out their duties, might benefit from consultation with members of Interact clubs.
If, within a district of RI there are five or more Interact clubs, a district of Interact clubs may be established, the boundaries of the district to be coterminous with the RI district embracing the respective sponsoring Rotary clubs. The Interact clubs in such district may elect an Interact representative from among their membership. The method of election shall be determined by the Rotary district Interact committee. The district Interact representative will be guided and counseled by the governor and the Rotary district Interact committee, or other appropriate Rotary district committee, and shall assist the district committee in arranging district-wide meetings. The representative shall preside at such meetings, shall give counsel to and provide encouragement and inspiration to the Interact clubs of the district, particularly with respect to broadening and deepening the program of Interact within the district, and shall help focus their attention on the worldwide extent of Interact and the potential and achievements of the program on behalf of international understanding.
If a district of Interact clubs has been established, there may be, with the approval of the governor, a district organization which will provide, in addition to the district representative, for a district secretary and two or more zone representatives, each responsible for a certain number of clubs and such other responsibilities as may be assigned by the district representative.
Within a district of RI, any two or more Interact clubs conveniently located with respect to each other are encouraged to hold meetings with representatives from each club, with the advice, guidance, and presence of one or more members of the district Interact committee. The purpose of such meetings is to increase friendship, exchange ideas, gain inspiration, and strengthen, broaden, and deepen the program of Interact within the district. When distances permit, such meetings may be held on a district-wide basis, under the guidance of the district Interact committee, with one or more members of this committee present. The purpose of a district-wide Interact meeting is to provide encouragement, enlightenment, and inspiration to the Interact clubs with respect to school and community service and to focus attention on the worldwide potential and achievements of Interact on behalf of international understanding.
No meeting of members of Interact clubs beyond the club level shall have any legislative authority nor shall be so organized or conducted as to give the appearance of having such authority.
Nevertheless, such a meeting may include the opportunity for expressions of ideas which might be of value as advisory observations to those who are involved in the district or other levels with the administration of Interact. Meetings of Interact club members from more than one district, particularly from districts in more than one country, are recommended and encouraged wherever feasible. Such meetings are to be held under the guidance of the host governor and the Interact committee, with one or more members of the committee present and in conjunction with the host Interact representative and Interact presidents, and subject to the approval of the RI Board. Requests of the RI Board for holding multidistrict meetings of Interact clubs must be accompanied by:
1) 提議會議之日期、地點、目的、節目及參與的資料；information including the date, location, purpose, program, and participants of the proposed meeting;
2) 一份會議財務預算表及保證贊助人將擔負會議所有財務及契約性的責任；a copy of the anticipated budget for the meeting with assurance that the sponsors are in a position to and will assume complete responsibility for contractual and financial obligations inherent in the meeting;
