Please publish the changes proposed by the Dept. of State to all the Rotary Clubs in your District. You can find the reference sources on Yeoresources or Yeotalk. Many of the changes will inhibit the ability of our program to recruit Host Families and increase the cost of administration.
While we are all interested in the safety of all our students, both inbound and outbound, wrapping us in a plastic cocoon is not the way to increase their protection!
Within our clubs are members with connections to Congress that can be moblized to modify the regulations. Unless someone tells them we need help they won’t know what is happening.
