Rotarians: Engage with Rotary despite time conflicts!

Rotarians, Engage with Rotary despite time conflicts!

1.  Participate at your convenience in e-Club meetings & follow their processes to confirm your participation (some will e-confirm & you can e-forward the confirmation to your club secretary.  Some e-clubs will ask for a financial contribution to help them continue their Website services & you can share a copy of the payment with  your club secretary)

  • Also, Rotary.org/ClubLocator & scroll downward to select “E-CLUB” form the lower, left-hand side (& then fill-in-the-boxes with “E-CLUB,” which country, what language & then click “SEARCH” & e-Club links will appear).
  1. Attend other Rotary clubs in your own town or in other towns: one of the main purposes of Rotary is friendship & visiting other clubs is a century-old tradition for Rotarians.  To find other Rotary clubs’ days, times & locations wherever you happen to be travelling:  Rotary.org/ClubLocator  Ask each club to complete & give you an official Rotary form that confirms your attendance (or ask them to write a confirmation that you attended if they have no official form) & give your attendance form(s) to your club secretary.  I often attend all 3 Rotary clubs weekly:  a great way for me as a relative new-comer to get acquainted.  Bonus:  As a guest, you’ll be joyfully introduced to the entire group each time (an awareness-building strategy for your business & a potential way for you to meet out-of-town Rotarians in your business … who may be able & willing to refer customers to you in your town or who may be willing to to be your career-building mentor).
