August 25 Meeting
Our speaker was Terry Cowan, speaking about 'Rotary E-Clubs'.
'E-Clubs' do not have a brick and mortar meeting location - they only meet on-line. There are 142 E-Clubs, around the world. Members can be from different cities/time-zones, and even different countries. Terry's E-Club has 63 members, with 23 of the members located outside of the USA. The current President is a member from Uganda, but currently resides in Aberdeen, Scotland. Previous Club Presidents have come from New Mexico, Colorado and Mexico. Terry's E-Club is 'Rotary E-Club of the SouthWest USA' [ ]. E-Clubs meet weekly - same as 'regular' Clubs. They carry out service projects, support The Rotary Foundation, and also socialize. But the members connect through the Internet.
