Rotary’s Constitutional Documents

The Rotary International constitutional documents provide club and districts the foundation for RI’s policies and procedures.

  • Constitution of Rotary International (PDF)
  • Bylaws of Rotary International (PDF)
  • Standard Rotary Club Constitution (PDF) (Word)

All clubs admitted to Rotary membership must adopt this constitution.

  • Recommended Rotary Club Bylaws (Word)

Clubs can tailor these bylaws, as long as their changes align with Rotary’s constitutional documents and the Rotary Code of Policies.

2019 COL Report of Action

The Manual of Procedure offers a concise version of Rotary’s policies and procedures. The manual is geared to Rotary club and district leaders and features information that’s most relevant to their roles. It is published every three years to reflect adopted legislation and decisions of the RI conventions, the Council on Legislation, the Rotary International Board of Directors, and the Trustees of The Rotary Foundation.
