How is Zonta structured?
Individuals, called Zontians, are members of Zonta clubs. Zonta clubs are members of Zonta International, which is divided into 30 geographical districts around the world for ease of administration. Clubs in specific areas belong to a district. At club, district and international level, democratically elected boards lead the organisation and provide direction for the future. Decisions are made at monthly club meetings, district conferences are held in the odd years and international conventions are held in the even years.
What do Zontians actually do?
Zontians volunteer their time, talents and energy to local and international service projects that advance the status of women and meet Zonta's Objectives.Clubs decide on their own service projects at a local level. At an international level, the programs are developed and overseen by subcommittees of the Status of Women Service Committee, which reports to the Zonta International Board. International service projects are voted upon and approved by clubs at the biennial Zonta International Convention.
