E-Club Basics


Rotary E-Club Basics

What kind of an E-Club are we?    

District 7090 E-Club                            

Rotary District 7090 includes Southern Ontario and Western New York.  For further definition by county in both the US and Canada, please refer to our District 7090 map posted to the website www.rotaryeclub7090.org .   But we also welcome members from across the globe who have a connection to the region or are known to members of our club!

When are our Meetings?        

We meet online 2 weeks out of the month, and consider all in-person visits to other Rotary Clubs, service with in the club or outside the club and online meetings with other E-Clubs as make-ups.  Our online meetings are scheduled for Thursday evenings from 19:00 - 20:15 (Eastern Time Zone of US/Canada) .   

Week 1                     Club Assembly

Week 3                     We meet online, with a scheduled guest speaker 


Rotary E-Club of SOWNY periodically sponsors face-to-face meetings and special events, for example, our After-Holiday Dinner in January.   

Committees have the option to meet online or in-person as they deem necessary or practical.   The online meeting tool called Zoom is utilized.  

What is the structure of our E-Club?

We have a Board of Directors and standard Committees.   Board Meetings occur online once per month.

What about Fund Raising and Special Events?  

Fund raising events may be scheduled throughout the year. Our biggest annual fundraiser is the "Big Game Raffle" ticket sale (winner receives 2 tickets, lodging. etc. to attend professional football's biggest event).  We also host special events for fun and fellowship and to bring our E-Club members together to meet face-to-face.  Rotary E-Club encourages special family events and participation in Rotary events to make the club more vibrant and balanced.

Why would I want to join an E-Club?  

You may have time limitations that make a traditional Rotary Club meeting difficult for your schedule; e-Club meetings are shorter and you can plug-in from the comfort of your home, office, vacation location, business travel location or winter residence down south! You may have budgetary limitations; E-Clubs are generally less expensive as there is no layout of money for meals, drinks, raffle tickets, happy dollars, etc.    You may be the type of person that prefers technology and enjoys the idea of on-line meetings and website programsRotary E-Club is perfect for seniors or retirees who can’t physically travel easily to a traditional weekly Rotary Club meeting.  It is also a perfect model for snow-birds who live away for a good portion of the year.   We visit many clubs in our District  and meet other Rotarians , a perfect way to exchange ideas and share our enthusiasm for service above self. 


When was the Rotary E-Club of SOWNY chartered?  

We were chartered on July 11, 2013.
