Welcome to the Rotary eClub of Latitude 38

What is an eClub? An eClub is like any other Rotary clubs: it carries out service projects, supports The Rotary Foundation and members connect with each other as well as with members of other Rotary clubs. The difference is that we connect regularly online, not necessarily at the same time but at a time that’s convenient to each member.

How does an eClub operate?
 
The eClub's website is the meeting place where the weekly meeting is posted (see below), club project details are displayed and regularly updated and suitable videos and other material is available to enhance your Rotary knowledge in the area of community service. Some eClub members also meet in person at service projects, social activities, district conferences or the Rotary International Convention.
 
What do I commit to as a member of the Rotary club of Latitude 38?
 
You will be encouraged to:
  • Work through the weekly meeting below and if appropriate make comments on the club's facebook page (this should take about 30 minutes each week);
  • Participate in club projects (see projects page), engage with a project of a local Rotary Club or local community organisation and tell the other members about it on the Facebook page;
  • Spend at least 12 hours a quarter on Rotary related activities;
  • Support the Rotary Foundation; and
  • Plan to attend an annual Rotary Conference or Rotary International convention.
Who can join an eClub?
 
Each eClub is based in a specific district but its members can be from anywhere in the world. Some eClubs focus their membership in a particular region or community.
 
An eClub could be right for you if you:
  • Have a busy schedule and need a flexible meeting time
  • Live in different places throughout the year
  • Travel frequently
  • Have limited mobility
We welcome your enquiry.

Sara's Caravan
 
President's Message
 
Here we are starting a new Rotary year with a new board and a fresh vision. The goals we are looking at achieving this year include the following:
 
  • Increase membership by a net of 2
  • Increase membership interaction - Establish a monthly fellowship meeting.
  • Promote Cambodian projects
  • Establish two other projects – at least one in Australia
  • Establish a twinning arrangement with another eClub
  • Have a good attendance at the District Conference
  • Contribute $A2000 to the Foundation through member personal gifts.
  • Contribute $A500 to PolioPlus
The Board will start working on these goals at next Monday night's board meeting (16 July) and you are welcome to join that online meeting.
 
 

Regards,

  

Brian N.

President 2018-19

 

 
This week's meeting material 
 
Something from the Rotary Convention in Toronto last month:
 
Dear Fellow E-Club Member,
At the RI Convention in Toronto last month fellow e-clubbers from 10 clubs presented a 90 minute breakout session titled “Best Practices for E-Clubs”.
This well attended meeting (between 250 and 300 people were in the audience) used Zoom as the communication platform and several presenters were in virtual attendance. Other than some minor technical hurdles the session went off without any major problems and so far we  have received many positive responses.
 
The meeting was recorded and can be viewed at the YouTube channel of our club:
 
The powerpoint slides have been uploaded to slideshare.net and can be found here:
 
 
All the speakers and the e-clubs that participated can be reached by clicking on their name, as the slides have a hyperlink to both the club’s website and their  e-mail address.
 
Please share with your members and everybody else interested in learning more about e-clubs.
 
We are looking forward to your comments, suggestions and criticism as we move forward spreading the word about e-clubs in the world of Rotary.
 
Regards, 
Peter Denooy
Rotary E-Club of Canada One

Have a personal Rotary Membership Plan
 
Membership of Rotary, like any other activity in life, works better if you have a personal plan about how to get the most out of it. At the beginning of every Rotary year (1 July), or at any other time, why not sit down and plan how you will maximise your membership. In an eClub this is especially important as we don’t have the impetus of a weekly face-to-face meeting to give us a “push along”.
 
Here are some suggestions. You may think of other things you might do.
·         Run your eye over Rotary Basics to refresh yourself about what Rotary is about.
·         Work through the weekly meeting on the website and make comments on the club’s Facebook page.
·         Make regular posts on the Facebook page and respond to posts already there.
·         Look at the club’s projects page to see what projects you might become involved in.
·         Commit to contributing $A100 to the Rotary Foundation during the year through the Centurion
          Program. The club can organise this for you.
·         Commit to attending the District 9820 Conference or the district conference where you live.
·         Make suggestions on how the club can work better.
·         Participate!
