To prepare for an international Council on Legislation, Rotary International had to produce books of proposed legislation in six languages. The English version alone weighed nine pounds and spanned 1,488 pages. The French, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Spanish volumes ranged from 1,446 to 1,558 pages. Quantities varied widely, from 32 copies in Korean to 470 English books.
The massive job required a grand total of 1,120,000 impressions, includ-ing printing, collating and three-hole drilling. Finished sets were inserted in ring binders with color-coded covers and spines to differentiate the various languages. Completed books were delivered to Rotary Internationals headquarters in Evanston and to the meeting site at the Chicago Marriott Downtown hotel.
Delegates pore over a huge book of proposed legislation.
Council is a legislative body that discusses and votes on proposals to change
Rotary Internationals constitution and bylaws.
The task we have before us is totally unique in Rotary history, said Clifford L. Dochterman, chairman of the 2001 policymaking body, as he convened the opening session. Never before has a Council been asked to consider the number of proposals you have before you.
A total of 523 delegates from 65 countries pored over a record-setting 631 items during the six-day meeting.
Electronic units speed the legislative voting process.
type of job is a textbook example for digital on-demand printing, says
president Steve Johnson. Short press runs of
large- volume documents are not practical for offset printing. Last minute
changes also create havoc. In the Spanish version, for example, we had to
remove and renumber all the pages from 1253 to 1516just days before the
delivery deadline, Steve explained. That would be a nightmare for a
conventional printer. We solved the problem with a unique approach by utilizing
our variable data printing capabilities to add the new page numbers.
Thats the same method we use to print your name and address on
Overnite Lite, Steve concluded.
