How many members do you average?


Rotary eClub One averages between 85 and 95 members at any one time. Many of our members are experienced Rotarians who are unable to belong to a traditional Rotary Club because they reside at a remote location or they are engaged in a demanding travel schedule. Without Rotary eClub One these folk would be lost to Rotary. Our members have given over 200 years service to Rotary, and Rotary eClub One provides the opportunity for them to continue to serve.

There are many additional programs in the archives.

Who are your members?


All members are Rotarians who sought membership of Rotary eClub One because their professional commitments precluded them from participation in traditional terra Rotary Clubs. Several of our members travel constantly. Their membership of Rotary eClub One gives them access to their eClub anywhere there is an Internet connection. Some are highly experienced Rotarians who have already contributed elsewhere as Club President or District Governor.
