New delegation tool launches
As part of several recent updates to My Rotary, we've launched Delegation, a new tool that will help you carry out your responsibilities more efficiently. If you have a club, district, or regional role, you can now delegate your role-based access in Rotary.org with fellow Rotary members so that you can share tasks and responsibilities to better serve your club. See an example of the Delegation landing page. Go to My Rotary to learn how it works. If you have questions, contact us at rotarysupportcenter@rotary.org.

Kick off Membership and New Club Development Month by participating in a Twitter chat with Rotary International General Secretary John Hewko on 5 August at 10:30 Chicago time (UTC-5). Get tips and resources for gaining members and becoming more involved in your club. Share your own ideas and expertise on how Rotary members can encourage their friends to join. Use #RotaryChat to participate and follow @Rotary and @JohnHewko.

A daughter disappears. A son contracts Ebola. When faced with such disasters, "people feel anger, guilt, sadness, frustration – feelings that can poison the body and spirit," says Kalayjian, a trauma specialist at Columbia University.
