Sponsoring a New e-Club
June 23, 2015 the Rotary eClub One President Elect Emmanuel Serrière attended
the Charter ceremony of the Rotary South e-Club of District 2100. This new e-club is sponsored by Rotary eClub
One and Emmanuel flew from his home in South of France to Naples.
President Giovanni checks the evening's list
forty people attended the event held on a lavish reception room of a tennis
club in Naples. The man behind the idea
is Giovanni Scognamiglio who had never heard of e-clubs until 5 months before. Giovanni was a Charter president of Rotaract
in 1994 and then joined Rotary in Naples in 1996. The idea came because a member of his club
who left because of inability to pay joined Milan e-club, so Giovanni did a
little research and loved the idea.
2100 Governor Giancarlo Spezie was not sure the project could be done before
the end of his Rotary year in 4 short months.
Nonetheless he was a good supporter and drove the project forward even if
he was also worried the new e-club would steal members from existing clubs. When Giovanni contacted Emmanuel, he was very
surprised at the rapidity and efficiency he received the responses to his
concerns and questions.
2100 Governor Giancarlo, President Giovanni and President Elect Emmanuel
is not the case of an existing club becoming an e-Club or a hybrid Club. This is brand new club started with 30 members
composed of 23 new Rotarians, only seven Rotarians, mostly abroad. Nineteen of the members were present at
Charter night conducted by President Giovanni aided of the District 2100
Most of the members of the new club are new Rotarians
ceremony was to present the new Charter to the club and induct new
Rotarians. One Paul Harris Fellow
recognition was handed out and a very involved senior Rotarian was made
The sponsor, Rotary eClub One donated a bell and gavel needed for their monthly meetings
eClub One President Elect Emmanuel presented the club with a new bell and gavel
and welcomed the new e-Club. They will
still meet in various’ member’s locations once a month. Most are from Naples plus one from South
Korea, Great Britain, Germany, Greece, Hong-Kong, New York (was present) and
plan to help youth to train for jobs – paid by employer or rotary, will have fundraisers
with local pianist, Rotary jewelry and expect matching grants with Italian
foundation, Italian District, eclub One, etc. Emmanuel
received a plaque of recognition, a District tie and 3 bottles of fine Vesuvius
white wine – which he donated right back as he didn’t want to have to check any
luggage on his return flight.
Governor Giancarlo, President Elect Emmanuel and President Giovanni exchange plaques and banners
Emmanuel adds: "Waiting
for my next plane between Rome and Nice, I
have some time so I sit at a counter of a restaurant. A man with a Rotary
pin sits next to me. I give him my card; he is the outgoing District Governor
of Rome/ Sardaigne on his way to a youth meeting, Carlo Noto La Diega.
Small world, we exchange a few ideas. He calls on his phone Governor Giancarlo – whom
I met a couple of days before at the Charter night - to tell him that he is
sitting next to me. Carlo insisted to pay for my salad and glass of wine. I LOVE Rotary".Request a Makeup Confirmation
