District Launches First eClub
The digital door is now open to the district's first eClub. The recently chartered club is named eClub of Northeast Florida and becomes the 61st club in the district. Members are being recruited and visitors needing to make up a missed meeting are being encouraged to attend the online meetings of the new club.
This is not a bricks-and-mortar club. It is not a virtual one either. But, the eClub of Northeast Florida does have an address on the Internet where you can attend meetings and engage in conversations with its members.
The eClub's first president is Sandra Hartley of Green Cove Springs.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
eClubs have members and visitors.
Visiting the eClub Online for a Make-Up Meeting
You can visit the eClub at any time to maintain your own club's attendance requirements. You must spend a minimum of 20 minutes of online time with the club and pay a meeting fee of $5.00 for each visit. You may donate more if you wish.
Joining an eClub as a Member
Members can not be a member of another Rotary club. The Rotary eClub program — which was introduced by RI as an experimental project 14 years ago — was designed to meet a different membership need. However, the eClub membership does not diminish the commitment of a Rotarian to be involved in community and international service projects. Examples of qualified members:
Current Rotarians unable sustain a membership because of extensive business commitments, health issues, geographic isolation, or mobile life style.
Qualified new members who would better served by an online club.
A former Rotarian not currently an active member of a club.
- Eligible prospective members under age 35 who cannot fit the standard Rotary meeting format or justify the financial commitment
You'll find more information and a set of instructions about how to visit the club or join the club on the homepage of the eClub's website.
