Online club meetings

Online club meetings

Meeting online may be right for your club if members have busy schedules, limited mobility, or live in an area without a Rotary club. Clubs that meet online often arrange to meet in person for service projects, social activities, or Rotary events, like the Rotary convention or district conferences.

How to hold an online meeting

Webinars, videoconferencing, message boards, instant messaging, and tools like Skype and Google Hangouts can help you hold an online meeting. For example, a club member might post content on a message board for other members to respond to throughout the week.

To get started, your club will need:

  • A dedicated website
  • Members who are responsible for updating the website
  • An online platform for hosting meetings
  • Private sections of the website that only members can access to protect their personal data
  • Online financial transaction systems that allow members to pay dues, donate, or process payments
  • The capability to let visiting Rotarians attend your virtual meeting

Clubs are responsible for costs associated with purchasing a URL and hosting their site on the internet.
