Attendance Make-up Rules

To qualify as an official make-up, a Rotarian must attend another Rotary meeting either six weeks prior or six weeks after the missed meeting. If attendance is at another club, the Rotarian must submit to the club secretary a make-up card filled out and signed by the visited club’s secretary. If such card is not available, or if attendance was at some other approved Rotary meeting, the Rotarian must submit a note to the club secretary detailing the event and date.

The Object of Rotary
