Inner Wheel District 301


INNER WHEEL PRAYER

Instill in us O' Lord, the true meaning of friendship
Never let us forget that we are all Thy children
Notwithstanding the differences in our cultures and creeds,
Endow us with a desire to serve our fellowmen,
Remembering that we, too, often need help.
Whenever or Wherever the need for service arises,
Help us to be ready to serve.
Endeavouring to make our badge of Inner Wheel worthwhile
Ensuring that we have not
Lived in vain.

 

 

 

 

 

“The Candle that lit the flame of Inner Wheel”
Mrs. Margaret Oliver Golding
Founder of Inner Wheel
Manchester UK


Margarette Owen, later Mrs. Oliver Golding the wife of a Manchester Rotarian, was born of Welsh parentage at Hey-Brecon. She was trained as a nurse and had served during the First World War. This triggered off a deep desire to help all ailing, deprived humanity. She was an extremely capable business woman and a great philanthropist; her chief social interest being the Manchester Girls' Orphanage & Ancoats Hospital, for which the Inner Wheel of Manchester provided and furnished a mortuary chapel. She also did a great deal for the Girl Guide Movement, in which she held the Office of Commissioner.

 

She formed, directly and personally, numerous Clubs and several Districts and her inspiration is remembered to this day; she successfully achieved even harder task in persuading Members to look beyond their local concerns and become part of a greater whole and serve the Society.

 

Here was a vital personality combined with a clear brain and the ability to convey ideals to others. She was an excellent speaker and had a lively sense of humour which enriched her words. Nature had bestowed her with gift of inspiring friendship and devotion. Her greatest attribute was courage and courage was what Inner Wheel needed in the beginning. Inner Wheel was firmly established during her lifetime upon the path which it was to follow thereafter.

 

 

What Is Inner Wheel?

The Inner Wheel is the world's second largest women's organization and comprises of the women folk of Rotarians. It is a recognized voluntary Non-Government Organization to help and serve the needy and underprivileged sections of the Society. In recognition of its social service, it has got representation in the United Nations Economic and Social Council. The Inner Wheel concentrates upon Friendship and Personal Service. It is not what is termed as “a money raising organization”, though each Club selects its own charities and channels of service. One of the greatest features of Inner Wheel is the opportunity given to its Members the world over to get to know one another, thus contributing to International Friendship and Understanding.

 

How Was Movement Of Inner Wheel Started?

Mr. Paul Harris started the first Rotary Club in 1905. In 1920, the wives of Rotarians in Great Britain and Ireland joined hands to help their husbands with social work undertaken by Rotary. The friendship resulted in forming the Inner Wheel. In 1924, the Manchester Club of England was formed and was provided the name Inner Wheel. As time passed, many Inner Wheel Clubs came into being and in 1934 the Association of Inner Wheel Clubs in Great Britain and Ireland was formed with Mrs. Oliver Golding as the founder President and Mrs. Nixon as the Secretary.

 

They realized that unity is strength and had the wisdom to group Clubs into Districts and then later to bring the Districts together to form an Association. Since then the movement has grown rapidly and spread all over the globe.

 

Inner Wheel in India

The first Inner Wheel Club in India was formed in 1955 in Ahmedabad. In 1968, when the International Inner Wheel President came to India, there were three Inner Wheel Districts: Gujarat, Saurashtra and Bombay. The International Inner Wheel (I.I.W.) President combined them and named it as National Council of India.

 

With the expansion of Inner Wheel Clubs and Districts in India, in the year 1976 the Association of Inner Wheel Clubs of India and Sri Lanka was formed. In 1985 Sri Lanka was separated and Association of Inner Wheel Clubs in India came into existence.

 

Membership

Why Increase?

Do your Clubs in the District have difficulty in finding Presidents? Do your Clubs have 50% of the Members who have been Past Presidents? Do you have less than 60% attendance at meetings? Do you have Members who are just there on the roster and do not attend meetings? If you have any of these situations in your Club, yes, you need New Members.

 

How to attract Members:

New Members are very choosy. They join the Club only if they feel comfortable with the group of Members i.e. Fellowship. Only then they can enjoy themselves and take part in the Club activities-Good and interesting Club Programmes, Picnics, Factory Visits. The quality of Programmes makes a great deal of difference.

Who can become a Member:
A Member may belong to 1 Club only.
Classes of Membership

  1. Active
  2. Honoured Active
  3. Honorary

 

  1. Active Membership can be taken up by
    1. The wife or female partner of a Male Rotarian. Membership may be retained or taken up again notwithstanding the resignation or death of the Rotarian.
    2. The wife of a Rotarian or a former Rotarian.
    3. The wife/mother/sister/daughter over 18 years/step daughter over 18 years/ daughter in law over 18 years of any Rotarian or former Rotarian.
    4. The mother/sister/daughter over 18 years of an Inner Wheel Member.
    5. A female Rotarian or a female former Rotarian.

    7. A female who has participated in a programme of Rotary International, such as Students Exchange Ambassadorial Scholarships and Group Study Exchange (GSE)- and who has been personally invited to join.
    8. Honorary Members having served for atleast two years within a club may be offered membership as Active members of that club, provided a majority of the club agrees. This category of membership must notexceed 4 at any given time.
      Active Membership should be taken up in the Inner Wheel Club most convenient for a qualified Inner Wheel Member to attend.

  2. Honoured Active Membership:

    A Club may confer Honoured Active Membership on an Active Member who has given outstanding service to Inner Wheel. The Club will pay the Member's due for the year in which Honoured Active Membership is awarded. In the following years, she retains Honoured Active Status but pays all her own dues. Such a Member retains all the rights of Active Membership for life or until she leaves Inner Wheel.

  3. Honorary Membership:

    Clubs may invite up to 4 female Members whom they wish to honour to become Honorary Members.
    Honorary Members have no vote and cannot hold office in a Club. Having served for atleast 2 years within a Club, Honorary Members may be offered Membership as Active Members providing the majority of the Club agrees.

    These Members shall then have Active Members rights. This category of Membership must not exceed 4 at any given time.

    Members who transfer to other Clubs will be admitted as Active Members of those Clubs.

    Extension: Who is responsible for Extension within Clubs?
    We are: YOU and I
    How can we achieve this?

    By the energy and enthusiasm we put into our Clubs. By demonstrating to prospective Members the warmth, the caring and the sharing we have to offer. By working together on Club Projects; by adding social activities to our programmes which are fun and which create a feeling of belonging among Members; by adapting our programmes to meet the needs of all Members. These will Increase our enjoyment of Inner Wheel and may create an interest among Non Members too. Can each Club set a goal of introducing Inner Wheel to at least 2 Non Members in the coming year? Let's Try, You and I.

    If you don't put anything into a trumpet, you won't get anything out of it. It takes a lot of planning, a lot of hard work, and a lot of caring to make a success out of all you do.

 

What Inner Wheel Logo Means To Us

The official emblem consists of 2 gear wheels one inside the other, with 6 spokes radiating outward from the centre hub. There are 24 teeth on cogs on both inner and outer wheels. The word “Inner” appears at the top and the word “Wheel” at the bottom of the rim.

 

The colours of the emblem are blue and gold with the emblem in gold, the rims of the inner wheel and outer wheel in royal blue colour and the words “Inner” and “Wheel” in gold lettering. “The LOGO is obviously a gear wheel. The outer teeth of the wheel represent the Clubs around the world. If one of these teeth breaks off, the gear may slip a bit, but it still works. The 6 spokes represent the officers and service Committees and even if one of these fails the movement will continue. The Inner teeth of the GEAR WHEEL represent the links with other organization, charities and the work we do. If one of these teeth breaks, the rest will continue to benefit. The DOT IN THE MIDDLE REPRESENTS THE INDIVIDUAL MEMBERS, THE HUB WILL FAIL AND NOTHING WILL WORK WITHOUT IT”. (Mrs. Jean Parkin-PDC District 4)

 

So don't forget to oil the HUB, which helps to make the gear run smoothly. The colour is also important which is ROYAL BLUE for the Clubs and LIGHT BLUE for the Districts.

 

The Margarette Golding Award

A Profile of Inner Wheel

Inner Wheel is an International Organisation. Administratively, it functions at 4 levels. India is the 2nd largest Association. Inner Wheel is totally democratic at all levels. Every office is an elected one and every Club has a right to vote. IIW is governed by a Constitution and it is amended every 3 years at the IIW Convention. Once in three years an International Convention is held, proposals are submitted to amend the Constitution.

 

A conference of the Association or the Triennial Conference is held once in three years and amendments to the byelaws of the Association of Inner Wheel Clubs in India are passed by a majority of the Voting delegates.

 

Meetings – Club Level

It is usual for Clubs to meet monthly although some Clubs do prefer to meet fortnightly. Where Clubs have a speaker at the meeting, the business session should be transacted before the speaker arrives.

 

The following is a suggested procedure:

  • President's opening remarks
  • Apologies for absence
  • Minutes of the previous meeting to be read, confirmed and signed.
  • Matters arising
  • Finance
  • Any other business

 

Quorum of Meeting

20% of the Members of the Club form Quorum for the General Body Meeting and 4 Members form Quorum for the Executive Meetings respectively. At least 10 General Body Meetings should be held in one year and Executive Meetings should be held depending on the needs of the Club.

 

Meetings – District Level

30% of the District Committee or any Standing Committee shall constitute a Quorum. The District Committee shall meet atleast twice a year (held during July Assembly and December Conference time). Meetings of the District Executive Committee shall be held as often as necessary.

Election - Importance & Procedure


The Inner Wheel is a democratic organization at all levels. Every year there is a change of guard and this change is brought about through election.

 

It is important that these elections should be held in a fair and impartial manner. This depends a great deal on the District Chairman. She is the vital link between the Clubs and the District on one side and the Assn. and I.I.W. on the other side.

 

Elections conducted in the right spirit generate great enthusiasm and trust all around. It creates a feeling of goodwill which makes for efficiency and smooth working of the organization.

 

It is essential that the Election process is taken seriously and everything done very carefully for there is what is called a ladder system. Every Office held at the lower level qualifies one for the higher office. Any mistake can lead to problems later not only procedural but also constitutional.

 

 

Qualifications

Clubs – only the Clubs which have paid their dues are entitled to vote. (Some Clubs do not send their dues in time and their ballots are not counted.)

 

Candidates – I.I.W. Constitution and Association bye laws have set down their qualifications and the election procedures very clearly. It is important to go through the qualifications carefully as they are liable to change after IIW Convention and Triennial Conference.

 

Please go through these qualifications very carefully for they are liable to change and can be amended. As District Chairman you must emphasise the importance of these qualifications to the Clubs for that is where the real ladder starts. Club election may be routine but nevertheless they are very important.

 

The District Chairman must see that all the Clubs in the District have paid their dues. This is what entitles them to a vote in the District, Assn. and I.I.W. elections.

 

Nominations must be very carefully filled, after verifying that the nominees fulfill all the qualifications laid down.

 

Along with the nomination it is necessary to send the consent of the nominee in writing. It is a must. It is the responsibility of the Club, District, Assn. to ensure that the candidate has the mental and physical capacity to discharge the duties of the office. The photograph which is necessary for higher levels of Assn./I.I.W Elections must be a recent one taken within 6 months.


The bio data of the candidate also needs attention. It is necessary at all levels. But at the Club and District level it can be on the letter head of the Club, for the Assn., I.I.W. elections there is a proper format which must be adhered to and has to be submitted in printed forms. Please put in only what is asked for and the personal bio data has to be put in the space provided for. It must be in the number of words which are specified. Do not miss out any qualification.

  • District Chairman has the casting vote in case of a tie.
  • No Club can have more than two Members in the District Executive.
  • Voting is done by the voting Delegates. Clubs having more than 51 active Members have one extra Voting Delegate. If the Voting Delegate is not attending the District Conference, a Deputy may be appointed, who carries a letter on the Club Letter head, signed by the Club President and Club Secretary, which states that these Members have been nominated at a Club Assembly, held ………….date as voting delegates. This letter is a must and should be handed over to the Election Officer. No Voting Delegate can cast more than one vote. For voting, always put only an X. Any other mark is invalid.
  • Votes polled are not disclosed. It is the duty of the District Chairman to abide by the bye laws and act in an impartial and correct manner. Only then true democracy can prevail.

 

Association Elections

  • Elections to different posts are held throughout the year.
  • As different ballot papers are received by the Clubs, one should be careful.
  • It is the duty of the District Chairman with the Executive to guide the Clubs properly.
  • Association Elections are held by Postal Ballot.

  • Association Vice President/ Deputy National Representative.

  • Send the ballots by the registered post / courier / speed post, do not enclose any other written matter in the envelope and follow the instructions strictly to avoid invalidation of the ballots.
  • The Club should also be told to cast properly. Put an X .only beside the name of the chosen candidate passed at your Club General Body Meeting. Distribute these forms at the Incoming Officers' Institutes and carry them along for illustration at the official visit.
  • Chairman is the most important field officer to convey the significance of their power and duty to wards real and effective democracy.
  • Due to repeated efforts the percentage of voting has gone up but still needs improvement. In some Districts, Clubs do not vote. Chairman receives the information copy from the Association Secretary. Kindly follow up immediately with the Clubs and send request for duplicate ballot at the earliest. Ensure that Clubs really need the duplicate ballots for; sometimes the Clubs send both the original and duplicate ballots.

  • Write the name of the Club exactly as given in the Charter. Any other will make the vote invalid.
  • Do not put any other letter in the envelope.
  • Post the ballot immediately; do not wait for the last date.
  • Return Envelope from IIW along with the ballot must be adequately stamped and marked AIRMAIL and instructions followed.


If any Club has not received the ballot by the 25th December of the year, inform the Chairman who in turn must inform the Association Secretary / National Representative. IIW usually does not entertain the request for duplicate ballots.

Make Our Badge of Inner Wheel Worthwhile

 

“If you have hard work do it now
Today the skies are clear and blue
Tomorrow clouds may come in view
Yesterday is no more for you - do it now

 

If you have kind words to say, say it now
Tomorrow may not come your way
Do a kindness while you may
Loved ones always will not stay, say them now

 

If you have a smile to show, show it now
Make hearts happy, faces glow
Let your friends around you know
The love you have, before they go
Show It Now”
