District 24 is one of 32 Zonta International Districts worldwide, each of which is managed by a District Board elected by delegates to a biennial District Conference. The District Board assists clubs and promotes the programs of Zonta International within the District.
The District Board is supported by a number of committees as required by the Zonta International Bylaws. All positions are voluntary, with elected officers (Board members) and appointed committee chairs holding office for a period of two years.
Local clubs are the basic unit of Zonta International. This is where the main work of Zonta is carried out. Clubs within District 24 are grouped into three Areas, each with an elected Area Director (who is a member of the District Board) who provides guidance and support to the clubs in the Area and organises an annual Area Meeting for those clubs.
Clubs are organised with 20-100 members, or Zontians, who pursue Zonta’s mission through service and advocacy. Club structures mirror the District Board structure, with a club president and board elected by the club membership and supported by a club committee system. All club members are expected to be active on at least one club committee. Every club in D24 is a separate incorporated association.
Club and club board meetings are held monthly with committees expected to meet monthly, or as required, in addition to the regular club meeting.
