18/Jun/12, 10:18pm

Excelent program, you guys do a great job.

13/Jun/12, 11:01am

Congratulations and Roberto Cesareo.

To be disciplined in our eClub, if unable to attend the meeting in two weeks, we should also pay a fine of $ 10.00 USCy, but I think I'd pay a good amount. But the good thing is that would be additional funds for the Club. Lately I have not been able to put the current, so I'm going to hurry before it is implemented this rule.

Muchas felicidades  Cesareo y Roberto.

Para  ser disciplinados en nuestro EClub, si no pueden asistir a la reunión en las dos semanas  , también deberíamos  pagar una multa de $10.00 uscy, aunque creo que yo pagaría una buena cantidad. Pero lo bueno es que serían fondos adicionales para el Club. Ultimamente no me he podido poner al corriente, por lo que me voy a apurar antes de que se implante esta regla.

19/May/12, 9:05am

good meeting

Second meeting I have done with this club and really enjoy it!

13/May/12, 12:43pm

Times are changing and Rotary has to adapt to continue its goals and ideals. Like what your club has started and have been doing. 

10/May/12, 2:01pm

Enjoyed reading about the strategic planning going on to help take our organization safely into the future. I am pleased to see the focus on innovative clubs. I am blessed to have found and joined an eClub. 

10/May/12, 9:28am

Good use of technology.

Great Meeting

30/Apr/12, 11:26pm

It is interesting to see everytime that we rediscover that looking doesn't always mean seeing.

Thanks for this great meeting

29/Apr/12, 1:53pm

pretty sure i did this program and it did not record.

29/Apr/12, 1:51pm

It is motivating read the narrative of Steven Callahan about how he used his Self-Help Stuff for survive .

Thanks for the Rotary International Strategic Plan.

28/Apr/12, 12:34am

The RI strategic plan appears to have good initiatives; once polio has been eradicated perhaps we can select another disease for focus.  Noting that an oral vaccine was the catalyst for PolioPlus, what level of breakthrough would be required for other diseases?

27/Apr/12, 2:38pm

Rotary is changing, finding a way to meet the needs of the future, we must all do our part.

27/Apr/12, 2:08am

24/Apr/12, 1:57am

Great content once again!  Love the Rotaian recipes.  Keep up the good work... 

22/Apr/12, 3:43pm

Chris LaBarge and I just returned from RYLA - what a success!  I was priviledged to be a mentor for the Romania Ryla team which included Rosemary (delgate sponsored by E-club).  Team Romania showed enormous leadership and sportsmanship, winning the volleyball tournament and the water project presentation.  They are ALL fired up about being involved with Interact and many will be attending the District Conference.  I met our home school students that are starting an E-club,  Excellent young women and they asked if they could meet us at the District Conference.  I am so excited for the future of Rotary.  When these delegate learn about what we do and who we are they are so impressed and want to help.  Clean water is their overall project in the year of the Visionaries.  Thank you for your support of youth programs, funds well directed! 

22/Apr/12, 3:05pm

Good program and important to focus on those 16 goals, many of which our Eclub does quite innovation/flexibility, membership diversity, dynamic club, variety of service activities.  I'm proud to be a member of this club and of Rotary.

Lloyd Fleming
22/Apr/12, 11:40am

I found the e-learning modules very helpful in gathering and presenting RI's strategic priorties. I'm going to suggest to our club that we review them at an upcoming meeting.

My apologies when signing in. My club pre-fill was incomplete. My club is Kingston Rotary Club, Kingston, Ontario, CANADA

22/Apr/12, 9:57am

Alligator - wow! As for the program, the examples in the first of the three slide presentations made me think that there have to be ways we, as those exploring online possibilities for fellowship and service, can contribute to the call to be innovative. Perhaps there are online mentoring programs, or the development of simple media pieces to spread the word about Rotary that we can do.

22/Apr/12, 1:51am

Thanks for the meeting

22/Apr/12, 1:20am


Rick Barrett’s presentation of the Rotary Strategic Plan gives a good overview of the entire focus of our worldwide organization in its three key areas–clubs, service, and awareness. Like it or not Rotary must function like any other successful and sustainable business venture. Even though its mission is service above self that humanitarian and philanthropic purpose must be efficiently and effectively pursued for the benefit of all and that’s what the Strategic Plan aims to do. The e-learning modules builds on our general understanding of the Plan with specific examples of what clubs around the world are doing are they implement the plan.This was a great program! Thank you!

22/Apr/12, 12:30am

Thanks for the program Rick.  I'm pleased to see the 'sustainable" notion being incorporated into Rotary's service vision.

21/Apr/12, 4:16pm

There are so many avenue to serve. Where does one start??

21/Apr/12, 1:12pm

Rotary continues to update and revise it approach to serving the members and those in need. I hope that the second 100 years will be able to make as many advances for humanity as the first 100 years.

21/Apr/12, 12:26pm

The thoughts and inspirations are a great way to stay in touch when my business keeps me away from home

21/Apr/12, 9:53am

Good imformation about Rotary Rick

21/Apr/12, 6:28am

Another enjoyable meeting. it is wonderful to see how fellow Rotarians from other areas give service to their communities. Service is so important and new ideas on where it is needed opens up new possibilities. Looking forward to seeing so many of us at District Conference soon. 

21/Apr/12, 5:12am

How can an e-club work more locally to improve our image (RI and club), strengthen membership and the other goals of our program today?  I am especially concerned about local, and this can be district or regional programs. 

One quick idea I came up with is a window sticker with the RI shield and the e-club name and contact.  Since we live in a very wide and diverse area, we can easily 'show the flag' as we travel.

I would be willing to lead a small project like this, since I do a lot of printing in my photography, I can easily find someone to print the car window sticker. 

Just a thought.

For some reason I can't get any of the pdf files to download.  Using Safari as teh browser.   Don't really need a make up but THANKS for letting me browse around looking for ideas for an eClub up in the Pacific Northwest.  Your weekly meeting very impressive.  How many people contribute to each meeting?

20/Apr/12, 2:33am

I love the idea of a service project for a club in lieu of or as a it a meeting in action

18/Apr/12, 10:59am

Another very interesting meeting.

18/Apr/12, 10:02am

I loved the inspirational story about the man adrift at sea for 76 days - and the courage it took to stay alive.  It is truly remarkable - and humbling as I think how much complaining I do about little things.

18/Apr/12, 8:35am

Interesting recap of all that Rotary does in this world. I think sometimes we forget about all the Rotary projects that are going on in all parts of the world. My husband's club, Phoenix West, has a "Done In A Day" project. One that I recall is their collection of clothing, including underwear and socks, all the outer clothing, a backpack. pencils and paper, and various other items that a childl needs when beginning school. I sometimes think what a much sadder lamentable the world would be without Rotary. Norma Taylor-Roderique

Interesting information on Rotary International Strategic Plan.

18/Apr/12, 12:44am

I enjoyed this meeting and the variety of topics covered. 

18/Apr/12, 12:14am

As a 3 time translantic sailor I was moved about the gentleman in the life raft.  Having had a number of close calls with the sea made me appreciate life so much more.  What great meetings you have!

17/Apr/12, 11:21pm

I liked having all of this information present in one location and easy to access.

17/Apr/12, 11:11pm

Solid program as always.  I doubt most visitors fully appreciate the effort required to sustain your club's exceptional level of performance.  Good work!

Thanks for the makeup opportunity

17/Apr/12, 7:36am

Thanks Rick for making this available to our club. Sometimes it's not always the easiest challenge to find such information on the RI site. I hope members and visitors will take the opportunity to download this program (save it as a .pdf to your desktop) and keep as a reference.


17/Apr/12, 6:36am

Using grant money from the district and RI Foundation is a great way to leverage freash and clean water projects around the world.   The 5510 District Grant Chair is me, Jim Bissonett, you new club member.   Please contact to me if you have any questions about grants!

17/Apr/12, 5:31am

Downloading the program was long but, finally, very interesting. I think that inhancing public image is very important (in France) because people think that Rotarians are old and rich people who gather once a week to share a meal...they don't have a clue what we do! The Rotary emblem is not enough, we have to explain what our organization is doing  everywhere.

17/Apr/12, 4:08am

Interesting to see the plan!

Dave GoWell

17/Apr/12, 3:05am

16/Apr/12, 11:47pm

These are all great goals, and our club is helping. Some of the DC students the Osgood Center helped are now going to  China with us a part of a Model APEC. They are the leaders for tomorrow.

16/Apr/12, 11:22pm

Our SAA is the BEST! And another wonderful and varied meeting.         Clark Lovrien

16/Apr/12, 9:03pm

Very worthwhile program - I'm going to try to put together such a program, using the RI links, for our Club!!

16/Apr/12, 6:26pm

Thank you Rick for good program.

RI strategic plan is good plan.

Thank you Maureen for nice food of Alligator legs.

16/Apr/12, 1:54pm

Congratulations Francoise for your “SAA Minute” it was very good collaboration and the section of “How We Serve” is a very good way of knowing what we do besides the service through Rotary and the “Rotary International Strategic Plan” is not for one meeting it´s more a document to keep and consult.

Thanks to all and we will stay enjoying our anniversary month

Felicidades Francine por tu SAA Minute (en México nosotros decimos Maestro de Ceremonias Rotario o Macero y la traducción completa seria “El Minuto del Macero”) fue una muy buena colaboración, y la sección de “Como Servimos” es una muy buena manera de saber qué hacemos además del servicio a través de Rotary y el “Plan Estratégico de Rotary Internacional” no es para una junta, es más un documento para guardar y consultar.

Gracias a todos y seguiremos disfrutando nuestro mes de aniversario

16/Apr/12, 6:06am

I think the Rotary E-Club of Southwest is such an example of a dynamic club! I love the ways that Rotary is growing and reaching out to all members - especially through the Internet!

16/Apr/12, 4:34am

Hopefully I will be able to connect while I am traveling through Asia pre Bangkok with my old laptop.  Should be interesting.!

16/Apr/12, 4:17am

Very interesting program. I learned a lot and plan to share information about the RI strategic plan with our club in an upcoming meeting.

16/Apr/12, 3:54am

I'm so interested for reading "Rotarian in Wonderland"!

Every Japanese knows the story of "Alice in Wonderland".

Then I'm so glad for reading the story about Lewis Carrol and Alice Liddell.

Alice was the distant relative of Queen Elizabeth II.

I didn't know that!

In the future,I want to know about the anything by participating the Rotary "make up" and read anything interested story, too.

Thanks a lot.

16/Apr/12, 3:36am

Great overview of the RI Strategic Plan and a tremendous amount of detail in the included links! Super program as always!

16/Apr/12, 3:23am

The story about Steve's Callahan" survival on the ocean raft is very inspirational.  Happy 8th anniversary.  As far as the pure water project, my club has been involved as several members travelled to India on a water project.

15/Apr/12, 5:55pm
