Last year, in Zone 8 clubs were asked to submit their preferences on how they’d like to be grouped with other clubs into Rotary Community Groups (RCGs) and the results are now released.

RCBHC & RCBHC Satellite clubs are in group 2 for District 9815 for 24/25.  

RCGs are designed to foster greater collaboration between clubs so they can work more effectively and at a larger scale than they could on their own.

In Mar-Apr each RCG votes to elect their Rotary Community Leader, with each club submitting one vote.
