Rotary Oceania Operations
Rotary Oceania is the "brand name" for joint operations by Rotary districts 9910, 9920, 9930, 9940, 9970 and 9980.
 
Background
These 6 Rotary districts are collectively known as "zone 7b", being section b of Rotary International zone 7. Note that on 1 July 2017 Rotary International restructured the zones that overarch the 512 Rotary districts, and the above 6 districts are to become part of zone 8 of the 34 zones worldwide. This change; is subject to ongoing discussions; is intended to be completed when the first Rotary Institutes occur under the new structure in August-December 2019; and is unlikely to affect Rotary Oceania cooperation.
 
New Zealand and the South Pacific
For many years the 6 districts have acted jointly in regard to;
  1. tax-effective donations for overseas aid
  2. national advertising campaigns
  3. software systems for district and club operations and communications.
During 2016-2018 the latter two joint activities were restructured under "ROZops".
 
Operating Structure
ROZOPS Limited (Rotary Oceania Zone Operations) is a wholly owned company, held in trust by the 6 District Governors, to provide marketing, sales and technical services to the 6 Districts. It has 3 standing committees as shown in the following diagram and will have Special Project committees from time to time.
