We believe in the advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace, united in the ideal of service.
 
As a member of an E-Club, you can participate fully online - and enjoy the camaraderie and fellowship with other members of the E-Club through our get-togethers online.
 
We are like a regular club except that we meet online so that you can be in any location in the world. Great for Rotarian globetrotters and those of you who live too far from an actual club.
 
Everyone is welcome! 

Our members of our E-Club come from all over our One World - so you will have an international network of friends and true fellow Rotarians! 
 
We use three applications online to communicate with each other:
  • The first one is Teams and is a very easy and intuitive software to use where we have the ability to communicate with each member in chat and in groups. To showcase what we are doing in our own countries so that we can see what our eClub is doing and where we would love your assistance and input.
  • Our second application is the ClubRunner, where you can edit your profile and where you can find documents pertaining to our E-Club and our member's list.
  • Our third application is Zoom, we meet on this platform for our meetings. It is very easy to use, we send you a link with a passcode to enter the meeting. You will need a device that has a camera to be able to get the best possible experience!
   Do not let the technology deter you from joining our E-Club,
we have many members that will help you navigate and feel comfortable!
The 5 Avenues of Service 
 
Rotary’s ideal of service is based on the Five Avenues of Service; Club, Vocational, Community, International, and Next Generations. Our E-Club tries to support each avenue of Rotary as follows:
 
 
* Club Service

Is responsible for public relations and promoting our Rotary E-Club to the community at large. And we try to facilitate all communication methods or applications within our club to make it flawless to use for our members.

 

* Vocational Service

Develops different methods for Rotarians to learn about the vocations of fellow club members. While promoting the importance of the Rotary ideals of service in our professional life.

 
*Community Service

Develops projects so that our club as a group can participate in what will benefit and assist local community organizations and agencies. In our case, this can be anywhere in the world where our members are located.

 
* International Service

We support international service projects. These projects must have a long-term plan for improving a specific challenge. We usually have a club member already interested who works in partnership with an overseas organization or Rotarians to champion their cause.

 
* Next Generations Service

Rotary recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities, involvement in community and international service projects, and exchange programs that enrich and foster world peace and cultural understanding.

Our Programs 
 
At our E-Club we have every first Saturday of the month a Fellowship meeting; where we try to meet with another Rotary club in another part of the world in hopes of creating lasting friendships and collaboration. 
 
We also have 2 programs per month that can be viewed at your leisure; the 1st one is every 2nd Saturday of the month and the 2nd one is the last Saturday of the month. These programs might be in an interview style with one of our members so that you may learn what projects they are passionate about or it could be an article with a topic that is timely or truly fits in with Rotary.
 
We hope you enjoy it! Come back often as the programs are refreshed all the time.

Greetings fellow Rotarians and guests!
Welcome to the Rotary E-Club of One World!

 

Dear Rotary E-Club of One World,
 
As we look forward to the month of February, remember that it is recognized by Rotary International as “Peace Building and Conflict Prevention Month.”
 
At https://www.rotary.org/en/our-causes/promoting-peace is a significant statement of Rotary’s emphasis on peacebuilding and conflict prevention:
"Today, over 70 million people are displaced as a result of conflict, violence, persecution, and human rights violations. Half of them are children.
 
We refuse to accept conflict as a way of life. Rotary projects provide training that fosters understanding and provides communities with the skills to resolve conflicts.
As a humanitarian organization, peace is a cornerstone of our mission. We believe when people work to create peace in their communities, that change can have a global effect.
By carrying out service projects and supporting peace fellowships and scholarships, our members take action to address the underlying causes of conflict, including poverty, discrimination, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.
 
Our commitment to peacebuilding today answers new challenges: how we can make the greatest possible impact and how we can achieve our vision of lasting change. We are approaching the concept of peace with greater cohesion and inclusivity, broadening the scope of what we mean by peacebuilding, and finding more ways for people to get involved.
Rotary creates environments where peace can happen.”
 
As the Rotary E-Club of One World, we have a wonderful history of working to promote peace.  At present, under the leadership of our Incoming President, Pat Fisher, the efforts of our club continue to advance for the placement of Peace Poles in the communities where we live.  
 
Please consider what you can do to help Pat with this project, particularly in the month of February.
 
Sincerely,
 
Ken Meyer, Club President 2020-2021
Rotary E-Club of One World

Welcome to the Rotary E-Club of One World!

 

Dear Rotary E-Club of One World,
 
Dear Rotary E-Club of One World:
 
Thank you to each and every club member for the Service Above Self that you give in your communities.  It is common in Rotary for us to talk about two different dates.  The first date is when we make our way on to the rolls of Rotary International as a new Rotarian.  The circumstances involved in this first date are numerous. Different paths brought us to join Rotary.  A good friend invited us to join.  We saw Rotary as a way to learn and advance in our employment.  We wanted to be involved more in our community.  Then there is the second date we talk about.  And while the first date is important because without it we would not have arrived at the second date, it is the second date that is more significant and life-changing—it is the date or period of time when we “became” a Rotarian.
 
For me, I became a Rotarian when some years ago I was involved in Rotary Youth Exchange and saw over and over again youth leave their homes and familiar culture to places abroad and then saw them return months later with greater confidence and a better understanding of their world.
 
I would invite you to each reflect this week on the experiences you have had in Rotary and when it was that you “became” a Rotarian.  Then take it a step further and make a plan to help someone else become a Rotarian. As you carry out this exercise, I would also invite you to share on our Microsoft Teams site some of your experiences that made you a Rotarian.  
 
Sincerely,
 
 
Ken Meyer, Club President 2020-2021
Rotary E-Club of One World

Welcome to the Rotary E-Club of One World!

 

Dear Rotary E-Club of One World,
 
This month it really feels like spring is around the corner with new beginnings and renewed resolve to perform daily acts of Service Above Self.  This month’s Rotary International theme highlights one of the areas in which we as Rotarians can relieve human suffering and improve quality of life with well-placed effort and projects.  This month’s theme is water and sanitation.  Please watch the following short video as a reminder of another way Rotary Foundation is making a difference with its projects around the world.

Welcome to the Rotary E-Club of One World!

 

Dear Rotary E-Club of One World,
 
There has never been a better time to be a Rotarian. There is much to do but many Rotarian helping hands to accomplish what needs to be done. Our club continues to support many worthy projects, including projects developed and championed by our own members.  Thanks to each of our club members who give of their time, talents, and treasure in support of these humanitarian endeavors.
 
I continue to be amazed at the part of my Rotary journey that has included membership in the Rotary E-Club of One World. In the city where I live the slogan is “Discover the Unexpected.” In our club, I am always discovering in both long-time members of the club and new members unexpected talents and energy for doing good as well as unexpected friendships.
 
I look forward to seeing each of you at our monthly Fellowship assemblies.
 
Sincerely,
 
Ken Meyer, Club President (2020-2021)

Greetings fellow Rotarians and guests!
Welcome to the Rotary E-Club of One World!

 

Dear Rotary E-Club of One World,
 
As I write the polar vortex has caught up with my area of the United States.  Today in Madison, South Dakota it is a -20° Fahrenheit or -29° Celsius.
 
In club news, you will have noted that we are no longer using Workplace to communicate.  The service was no longer available for free, and the board voted to move our club to Microsoft Teams.  Please take some time to make sure you accept your personal invitation to join Teams.  Then take some time to move around in Teams to become familiar with how it works.  This is of course an adjustment for all of us.  A friend of mine is fond of saying that no one likes a change except a baby with a dirty diaper.  Once again though one of the best parts of our club comes forward—we are adaptable and able to change and be current.  One of the best things about being in an E-Club is learning different technologies and formats for communicating with one another across regional and international borders.
 
Another change in the works is an updated look to our website.  Thanks to everyone who has responded to my earlier request that you help out our Club Services Director, Gabriella, by sending her a short video clip.  As one last call for this assistance, I repeat here what I sent to each of you in an email:
 
“Gabriella is updating our website.  To make it more attractive and vibrant she is putting together a montage of club members (or connected Rotarians) saying in one sentence "I am a Rotarian because ... [fill in the blank]." When I first tried to do this for Gabriella I ended up sending her what she described as a "talking head."  I learned that the landscape video you take with your phone should include at least from your shoulders up.  Also, she needs for you to let the video run a couple of seconds after you finish speaking so that she can edit out your finger stopping the video.  Finally, use your native language when making the recording, and if your native language is not English, send Gabriella a translation of your sentence along with your video.  Gabriella will be glad to answer your questions about doing your video if you need further guidance. Please honor all the hard work that Gabriella is doing to update the look, content, and functionality of our club website by sending her your video ASAP.” If you feel uncomfortable for any reason on video, not to worry, she has suggested to send her directly via email or whatsapp a sentence of what you think of being a Rotarian. Start the same way as the video: "I am a Rotarian because....".
 
And hope to see you at our next fellowship assembly.
 
Sincerely,
 
Ken Meyer, Club President 2020-2021
Rotary E-Club of One World
