District 9800 recently asked each Club to formally sign off that they had adopted several District policies that have been developed/revised over recent times.
These policies are:
  • Code of Conduct
  • Protection Policy
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Mutual Respect
  • Privacy and
  • Social Media Engagement
The Board discussed these policies at the Board meeting last Monday and is following-up with District seeking clarification on one particular item.
There will be further discussion at the next Board meeting. 
To inform the members about the policies, most of which have been mentioned at various times and in communications to members previously, it is proposed to have a process to present about the policies by:
  • Inviting the District Protection Officer to speak at a Club meeting
  • As necessary, speak to each of the policies at meetings throughout the year
  • Publish the policies on the members section of the Club's website (all of the policies are currently available on the governance section of the District 9800 website)
