The first meeting of the e9650 Rotary Club was held using Go to Meeting on 23 July 2014.
It was agreed that OUR MISSION is to provide an alternative means for Rotarians to meet on line, changing lives both locally, nationally and internationally.
OUR VISION is to contribute to our District Rotary community through nurturing, educating and sharing.
Each member attending the Go to Meeting briefly introduced themselves giving reasons why they find this form of meeting to be an advantage to themselves.
The use of the website was discussed with a strong suggestion that we should consider rotarynew.info as a means of providing to members the full resources and information of Rotary International and use this information to attract new members.
The use of Go to Meeting as a vehicle to allow the Club to meet fortnightly on line o at least monthly was also discussed with suggestions coming from members as to possible guest speakers. This is also a great way for other Rotarians to makeup. The District provides the Go to Meeting forum for the Club to use at this juncture.
The finances of the Club were discussed with direct deposits to be made on line. It was agreed that that annual subscription should be $200 with $10 per meeting being contributed by Club members in lieu of dinner.
Possible service partners were discussed including ROMAC, LIFELINE, WESTPAC HELICOPTER SERVICE AND THE SOS ORPHANAGES IN INDIA.
Service work was considered including credit given for both Individual Service work and the opportunity to consider collective service work.
NEXT MEETING – Consider recruiting as the topic for discussion. Please forward your ideas to Ken
Possible recruiting from RYLA 2013 to be considered.
