European Union's General Data Protection Regulations


Your email inbox may be flooded with information on the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which takes effect on May 25, 2018. Because Rotary staff members process the personal data of European members, Rotaractors, program participants, and others, Rotary International is obligated to comply with this new data privacy law.

But what about clubs? Are individual clubs subject to GDPR?

Most clubs capture and maintain information on individuals that are relatively close, and not subject to GDPR. However, as an international organization, there are instances where clubs may need to ensure they are in compliance.

For instance, if your club maintains contacts or any personal information from Rotarians that reside in the EU, that data falls under GDPR. If sponsorships or relationships involve entities that are based in Europe (such as Shelterbox UK, RIBI, etc.), or if grants are undertaken with other Rotary clubs in the EU, GDPR may apply. Even youth exchange students coming from countries in the EU could trigger a need for a club to come into GDPR compliance.

#Me Too and Rotary

With significant media attention being paid to #MeToo and sexual abuse and harassment, particularly in the workplace, it is important that all Rotarians abide by norms and proper decorum when working together with other Rotarians. This is especially true at all club meetings, community projects, and service events.
The #MeToo movement started in October, 2017 with the public disclosure of  sexual assault allegations made against producer Harvey Weinstein. As publications continued to receive accusations of misconduct by Weinstein, media attention to sexual abuse and harassment grew exponentially. Soon after, thousands took to social media using the #MeToo hashtag, and a movement was born.
Many point to #MeToo as triggering a tidal wave of similar stories, which began an international movement against sexual harassment and assault. While the media has increasingly highlighted the issue, Rotary International and Rotary District 5340 have always maintained a zero-tolerance policy on sexual harassment.
Use the embedded link in this paragraph to go to the District 5340 website for details on Rotary's policies about sexual assault and harassment policies.  It is important that all Rotarians be aware of the all of the information included on the website about this subject.  

Club News, May 28, 2018

Family of Rotary
We were shocked on Wednesday of last week to learn of the passing of Martin Sheps. Apparently family members checked on him and found his body at his home.  At the funeral service at El Camino Memorial Part on Friday, 20 members of our club (with 3 spouses) attended to honor Martin.  We learned of his professional accomplishments as well as the many ways this remarkable man enriched his family and his community.  He loved to help people, so Rotary was a natural way for him to help people.  He was also active in his synagogue and was instrumental in setting up a youth game room.
Martin was the embodiment of the Rotary motto of "Service above Self."  As part of our Rotary Family, we will miss him and will treasure the memories of his notable Who am I talks.  We will remember the self deprecating humor he brought to the club with his rubber chicken and the products he was instrumental in developing which were not commericial successes.  Yet just two examples of products that were commercially successful that are legendary and have impacted our lives are: the Black and Decker portable electric variable trigger drill and the Hot Wheels toy cars.  These are but two examples of his remarkable accomplishments as an engineer in his professional career.  At his funeral those of us who attended learned facts about him that showed that in addition to his very successful career, he was also very devoted to his family and delighted in fishing.  Many people remarked about the ways he was willing to help them when they encountered a problem.  For more, see the story about Martin on the club website.
