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.

Welcome to Meeting No. 134 of the Rotary eClub of Latitude 38

April is Maternal and Child Health Month


President's Message

The Board met last week and carried on the work of the Club. I am grateful for the board we have and thank them for their work. All members had been invited to join the meeting but no new voices were on line. This was a little disappointing as it is important for a club like ours that we engage with each other from time to time as best we can. Even an apology for inability to attend a meeting would encourage the Board as it seek to give leadership. We are hoping to start up "fellowship" meetings soon where there will be less business and more of the "getting to know you" stuff. We might even have a guest speaker online! 

 

Don't forget that the Avenues of Service and District Assembly is coming up on Sunday 29 April 2018 at Federation Uni Berwick,100 Clyde Road, Berwick commencing at 8.30am. I know it is difficult for some of us to attend but those of us who can I hope you will make the effort. This is a great information and discussion day on matters Rotary. More details are on the District website.

 

I hope you all have a good week.

 

Regards,

  

Deanne S.

President 2017-18

 

 

This week's meeting material 
 
Maternal health: Where are we today? Maternal and newborn child health is central to social, human and economic development. Despite significant progress in improving maternal health globally, the current rate of progress is not enough. Far too many women still die every day from preventable causes related to pregnancy and childbirth. Just how many? Watch the video to find out.
 
How a team of chefs fed Puerto Rico after Hurricane  Maria - After Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico in 2017, chef José Andrés traveled to the devastated island with a simple idea: to feed the hungry. Millions of meals served later, Andrés shares the remarkable story of creating the world's biggest restaurant -- and the awesome power of letting people in need know that somebody cares about them.

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!
