Rotary Zone 8, principally Australia and New Zealand, is involved in a pilot project exploring a better way of organising Rotary, ensuring the best support possible to Rotary clubs and Rotaract clubs. Through a less layered and more devolved contemporary approach members can continue to do what they do best – projects and connections/fellowship.
