The “Rotary” name and gearwheel emblem, including the emblems and logos of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation programs and projects are known collectively as the Rotary Marks.
The word “Rotary” in connection with or in the name of an activity of a club or a group of clubs must relate directly to that club or group of clubs. The activity is not permitted to be related directly or indirectly to Rotary International. The word “International” is not to be used in connection with or in the name of the club.
Clubs and Districts are welcome to use the Rotary emblem, in association with Club or District projects and are requested to name accordingly.
Guidelines on the use of Rotary marks are provided in the Brand Centre at: www.rotary.org.  The Voice and Visual Guidelines will assist.  They can be found in My Rotary at:  Manage>Brand Centre>Guidelines>Voice and Visual Identify Guidelines.

8.Australian Honours Advisory Panel

This is a new initiative within Rotary Zone 8. The aim of the Panel is to encourage and support an increase in nominations, and the level of award, of eligible Rotarians for recognition through the Order of Australia Honours system.
The Panel’s objectives are;
1. To promote a wider understanding of the Order of Australia Honours system by Rotarians and to encourage the nomination of potentially worthy recipients, be they Rotarians or community leaders.
2. To prepare an explanatory statement about the Honours system with a guide to eligibility and how to nominate – with a link to the official “It’s An Honour” website and “Frequently Asked Questions”.
3. To be available to offer discrete advice about the criteria for identifying potential nominees; nomination procedures and effective submission of nominations, noting the four levels of appointment and award.
The National Panel is comprised of:
  • PDG Len Goodman AO (Convenor)
  • PDG Noel Trevaskis OAM (Rotary International  Director  2016-18)
  • PDG Bob Aitken AM
  • District 9810 Liaison Member: Alan Rae OAM
