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. 147 of the Rotary eClub of Latitude 38 

 

This week's meeting material

Click here to go to our Go Fund Me page to learn more about how to support developing youth leadership skills.

 

Rotary Club Project Spotlight - Rotary Club of North Baldwin

The Rotary Club of North Baldwin has a RAWCS project in Vietnam to help a community break out of its poverty cycle. This is an inspirational video that Rowan McClean and his club have put together. Click here to watch and please post some feedback on our Facebook page.

 

Coming Up - September is Literacy Month! 

September is recognised across the world in Rotary as Literacy Month. In particular, 8 September is International Literacy Day and celebrated widely, not just by Rotary. 

The Literacy - Rotarian Action Group ( www.litrag.org ) has produced a 'flyer' to help the districts. It includes information and challenges - written for your easy use across the district. 

 

This officially ends meeting No.147. Let me know on our Facebook group what you thought of the meeting material.

If you have an interesting topic, or project to share please contact Pete at pete@showell.com.au

Thank you for joining us, we appreciate your feedback, hope you will return soon and invite a guest.

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!
