Subject:             Process for inviting guests to our virtual meetings

Dear members,

Thanks for the positive feedback and comments on our meetings! If you are attending, please continue and if not we encourage you to log on and enjoy!

I also want to ask that you continue to invite guests to benefit from the great speakers the Program Committee is lining up for us. Here is the simple process to follow when inviting guests:

  • Forward the log on information to your guest and ask them to register.
  • Send an email to with a cc to letting us know who your guest is.
  • The email is essential because we want to a) warmly greet guests and b) we must record guests for Rotary and for our virtual system.

We appreciate your participation and look forward to welcoming your guests and, when appropriate, inviting them to become members!

Bob Welty

Other Ways to Make-up a Meeting:
1. The board unanimously approved another avenue to get additional credit for attendance. In addition to attending a committee meeting, doing an online make-up, or visiting another Rotary Club you can now get one meeting credit for every new member prospect/guest you bring to a regular Monday meeting. The credit will apply during the same quarter in which you bring the potential member/guest. This is a great way to both make up attendance and recruit new members into our club. Contact Paul White with questions.

2. To do a make-up meeting on-line, click the link below: Rotary Club Online make-up location: on-line system is set up to provide a written confirmation of the make-up to the person who actually did the make-up. The Member is then responsible for providing the confirmation to their Rotary Club Administrator. Please forward a copy of your confirmation letter to me to receive proper credit, also check the weekly newsletter to see if I have listed your make up and name, if not this indicates that I did not receive your make-up notice.
