Acronyms & Abbreviations

One of the most mystifying questions asked by new members (and many Rotarians of long standing) “What is the meaning of this or that abbreviation used in Rotary talk?”

Here I have endeavoured to answer the question. There are so many acronyms & abbreviations heard in the world of Rotary that many are not used in all Rotary clubs. I have included links to the more popular ones you will come across in the Rotary Club of Noosa Heads.
