Our first Members Only email meeting

Our first Members Only email meeting

How do we stay connected in times like these?

With our regular Wednesday night meetings suspended, we quickly came up with a way to keep members connected and engaged. The concept of the email bulletin was to mimic how we normally run our meetings, with the following agenda:

  • A Toast to Rotary International and the People of Australia!
  • President's Opening Remarks
  • Health and Welfare
  • Reports and Updates
  • Golden Moments

After 3 "email meetings", our member engagement rates have gone up from 76% to 90% (measured through open rates).

In the past three weeks, we have also been trialling the Zoom video conferencing platforms amongst our Board and Committees. Having "onboarded" about half the club, we're now ready for our first all-club video meeting this week!
