Rotary E-Club’s enable Rotary to offer business, professional and community leaders in any geographic region who are unable to meet traditional attendance requirements, to take part in Rotary Projects and fellowship.
Meeting within an online environment helps people who are unable to attend normal Rotary meetings due to demanding business or professional commitments, extensive travel, confinement due to ill health or disability, or residence beyond reasonable distance from an existing Rotary club.
Rotary E-Club’s are not “virtual” Rotary clubs. We are real Rotary clubs comprised of real living, breathing, working Rotarians doing real Rotary projects. We simply use the Internet as a tool to manage the club and manage projects. Use of the word “virtual” in the Rotary context is deemed to be inappropriate, because Rotary works in the real world, not in the virtual world. A Rotary e-club is part of the real world of Rotary International.
