Site changes, fixes and upgrades
Agreed - a great suggestion!
Sandy, you should see when going to "My Attendance" any terra meetings you've reported. I tried it a few weeks ago and it showed up just fine ...
forum post by Rushton H.
Our eClub was part of the early June celebrations in Tempe, Arizona, of districts 5490 and 5510 in our Bi-District Conference. This is one of the best opportunities our club has each year to meet with each other in person, and it included lots of ideas and fun. A great time, indeed!
Below is a picture of the five members of the club's 2013-2014 board who were inducted during the conference. Interestingly, none of us joined during the first three years of the club's existence (our club began in April of 2004), and except for me (Rushton), the members of this group have joined the eClub since 2011.
Our founders continue to guide us and help us make the eClub the best it can be. I see it as a strength that we have grown steadily, and that we continue to bring in folks willing to help the eClub explore how technology can serve Rotary's service.

Projects Around the World
Since we're a global eClub, almost every project we do is local to one or more of our members. We have a sister club in Turks and Caicos, where we support their work with the Dictionary Project. We do a Matching Grant every year (see Our Projects in the left column), with past projects in South Africa and India.
Most of our members are heavily enagaged in their own communties serving on nonprofit boards, working on youth projects, bringing unique educational opportunities into local schools, educating local ranchers on sustainable practices for ranching, etc. In fact, we log over 700 hours of service every month, and have done so for several years.
Some people wonder how an eClub has Fellowship. Actually, we do it just like other clubs: we fly or drive to do projects together (Turks and Caicos Island dictionary project, HomeFront America Grubfest in California), we work together in committees on this website, we share with each other in the forums at every meeting, and we party together! If you've never been to a global party, you've really missed something!! (thank goodness for Skype!)
And we call each other, usually on Skype, where we can get voice and video. We also look for occasions to get-together, like when our President-Elect comes to PETS in District 5510 it's party time, and a great time to meet the incoming president. And it's always fun to meet our fellow eClub members at the RI Convention.
