DISTRICT 5040 Policy Introduction:
 
District 5040 is a legally incorporated entity, known as “Rotary International District 5040 Inc.”. It is governed by a Chair and Board of Directors accountable to the members in the District. District 5040 Policy and By Laws are available on the D5040 Website. District Policies are required to be compatible with the District By-Laws. In any conflict of policy, the By-Laws of Rotary International District 5040 Inc. take precedence.
 
To establish district procedures and to provide an orderly system of maintaining records, actions and resolutions of District 5040, policy is adopted and amended as needed by a motion approved at the Annual General Meeting of District 5040. The policy is used as a guide by District Governors, District Committees, and Rotary Clubs concerning all matters relating to the District.
The policies and procedures of Rotary International are found in the Manual of Procedure of Rotary International. The District Governor for District 5040 is authorized to amend any section of the District policy to conform to Rotary International legislation, or  the By-Laws of District 5040. Clubs are notified of such changes that are ratified at the next AGM of District 5040, normally held in conjunction with the Annual District Conference, or at a Special General Meeting convened for that purpose.
 
The latest revision of District 5040 Policy was approved at the District Conference in Whistler May 2017.
