What is an E-club?

An e-club looks very much like any other Rotary club – they have weekly meetings, community projects, they support the Rotary Foundation, and they socialize.

Why E-club?

As an example, we can think of the people in diaspora.

The impossibility to participate in club meetings can be due to a very busy schedule, often traveling, health limitations or handicap, or living too far from a Rotary club.

Online Meetings

Online meetings can be the best choice, especially if members have very busy schedule, reduced mobility or live in an area that does not have Rotary clubs.

Even though most meetings are online, the members of an e-club can decide to meet in person, for projects, social activities or to attend Rotary events, such as the Rotary Convention or District Conferences.
Therefore, e-clubs are not only for the diaspora, but for people in the country as well – people whose busy schedules do not allow them to attend a regular Rotary club.

How to Have an Online Meeting:

  • Webinars
  • Videoconferences
  • Message boards
  • Instant Messages
  • Tools like Skype and Google Hangouts

For instance, a club member posts content on the message board for the other members to respond to throughout the week.

In the beginning, your club will need:

  • A dedicated website
  • Members who are responsible for updating the website
  • An online platform for hosting meetings
  • Private sections of the website that only members can access to protect their personal data
  • Online financial transaction systems that allow members to pay dues, donate, or process payments
  • The capability to let visiting Rotarians attend your virtual meeting
