Last month, Youth Protection Committee Chair John Schesta encouraged all Club Members to read and sign a one page form entitled “Rotary Club Volunteer Behavior Expectations in District 6270 while working with Youth in Activities”. At our meeting on September 5, John let everyone know that the cost for conducting backgrounds reports by the District increases on October 1 and the following notice was issued by PDG, Bob Hosch of the District:

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  Youth Protection Update
Currently we obtain criminal background reports from Intellicorp at a cost of $3.15 each. Intellicorp has announced changes in the price structure and content of these reports.  
As of October 1, 2014 the cost per report will be $10.00 each.  On July 1 2015 the cost will increase to $14.95 each.


These reports will include a national criminal search, national sex offender search, county of residence search, address history and verification of social security number.  Clubs should be aware of these increases as they could have a budgetary impact. Get your club’s criminal background checks done before October 1, 2014 and save.
Youth protection training is now done on line and as in the past is valid for 3 years.  You must be registered in the system in order to take the training.  It takes about 30-45 minutes to complete.  To register you need to provide the name, email address, and phone number of each person to be registered.  Forward all registrations to PDG Bob Hosch.

Thank you,

Bob Hosch, PDG
