Washington, DC, April 27th, 2018 – Quota International’s Bylaws make it possible for Quotarians to change lives around the world.  For nearly 100 years, Quota’s Bylaws have provided the structure, the safety, and the security, to guide 5,000 members empowering women and children and the deaf and hard of hearing in local communities around the world.

Guidance from A to Z

From Alstonville to Zeist, members come together to serve others and make the world a better place for women and children in desperate need.  Without Quota’s Bylaws, the students in Rawanda pictured above might not have clean drinking water.  With 233 million children living in poverty in Quota’s 14 countries, Quota needs Bylaws that provide the structure making it possible to change more lives.

Bylaw Amendments Submitted

Over a dozen Bylaw Amendments addressing a wide range of changes were submitted by Quota Leaders in Australia and the United States and reviewed by the Bylaw Committee.  The approved memo and packet is available below.  These amendments will be voted on in-person by the delegates on Wednesday afternoon, July 11th, 2018, at Convention.  Submissions came from Quota International of Beenleigh, Brisbane City, Redcliffe, and Jimboomba in Australia and Region 2 in the United States.

  1. Hi Barbara

    Will it be possible for past RD’s to participate, even as a listener? Off the back of our terms, we would be in a position to clarify things for our incoming RD’s who mostly will only just be in their new roles.

    I will forward this on to our incoming RD, Lois Watson.

    Kind regards
