Ask the RRIMC: Is there an "Inactive" Membership?

Q: Have you heard anything new about "inactive" membership status in Rotary and how that might work? One of my AGs asked me about "something someone heard" about "inactive" status (not Honorary, or Rule of 85) - perhaps from the recent International Assembly. Any news on this?

A: No, there are only two types of membership in a Rotary club: Active & Honorary. The confusion here may be based on the power that each club Board of Directors has to allow "excused absences" in their discretion under the Standard Rotary Club Constitution. That's where you look for guidance here. 
There are debates on various points of this issue at every COL.
