E-Clubs Making a Difference

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.

Rotary Founder Makes Surprise Appearance at Korea Convention

Convention attendees were treated to a surprise visit from Paul Harris during the opening session of the Korea convention on Sunday, 29 May.

An animated hologram of Rotary’s founder joined RI President K.R. Ravindran on stage, and proceeded to talk about Rotary’s growth from a small club in Chicago to an international organization that is changing the world.

“Rotary has been a gift to the world,” said Harris. “This Rotary program of friendship and service certainly has succeeded way beyond the dreams of us back in Chicago.” Harris also noted that the basis of Rotary and the convention remains as it was in his day: a marriage of friendship, values, and service.

Rotary’s first convention, in 1910, drew 60 attendees in Chicago. This year, more than 40,000 have come to Seoul. Ravindran quoted Harris as saying, “Rotary is the door to friendship, and let us throw it open.”
