There are four councils in District 7950, organized geographically. The councils operate independently of District 7950. Each club should appoint a delegate and one or more alternates as representatives at scheduled council meetings. All Rotarians may attend and participate in council meetings. Each council meeting counts as a makeup for a missed club meeting. A council coordinator serves as an advisor to the councils.

The purpose of the councils is:

  • networking within a geographic area,
  • inter-club fellowship activities,
  • joint service projects,
  • to provide a forum for discussion and sharing of ideas,
  • dissemination of Rotary information and education.
