RESOURCE SITE FOR ROTARY E-CLUBS

A service project of Rotary E-Club One - District 5450 Colorado USA

The purpose of this website is to provide practical information on the establishment and operation of a successful Rotary e-club.

There are critical strategic decisions (some quite complex) that a Rotary District must address before prescribing the type of Rotary e-club (pure or hybrid) and membership reach (district or global).

Unless these fundamental issues and their key drivers are addressed at the very beginning, there is the risk of failure.

Successful Rotary e-clubs (pure e-club model or hybrid e-club model) have a number of common attributes including:

  1. clarity of purpose
  2. commitment to excellence
  3. intelligent leadership
  4. sound organizational planning
  5. meaningful projects and activities
  6. continuous contact with members
  7. harmonious member interactions and fellowship
  8. careful membership development
  9. close engagement with the Rotary District
  10. effective use of appropriate technologies

Visitors to this site may be surprised to see "technologies" as item 10 at the bottom of the list, rather than at the top. The most successful Rotary e-clubs knew from the beginning that technology is purely an enabler, nothing more.

To see a list of the most frequently asked questions about Rotary e-clubs and the answers please view the FAQs.

Paul Harris - Rotary Founder

"I would like to think that the pioneering days of Rotary have only just begun. There are just as many new things to be done as ever there were. Kaleidoscopic changes are taking place, many of them without our will. Even to hang on to the fringe of this fast-changing world is about all most of us can do. Rotary simply must continue to pioneer or be left in the rear of progress."

The Rotarian Magazine - 1945

What is Rotary E-Club One?
