Welcome to the Rotary of Northeast Florida E-Club. We are Rotary District 6970's 61st club receiving our charter from Rotary International on April 16, 2015. Club membership is made up from individuals who reside in the 12 counties of the northeast corner of Florida - Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Marion, Nassau, Putnam, St. Johns, Union, and Volusia.
Many members of our club are individuals who could not meet the weekly meeting requirements of a terra club due to professional or personal commitments. Their membership in our club gives them access to their club anywhere, 24 hours a day, six days a week. Also, our club affords Rotarians the opportunity to do make up meetings with us when they are unable to attend their home club meetings.
If you are a visiting Rotarian wishing to make up a meeting with our club, please select the tab at the top entitled "Visiting Rotarian" Sign in as a "Visiting Rotarian" to get you started. Once in, click "Next" at the bottom of the Member Interest page. This information is for members only.
Rotary International requires that visiting Rotarians who plan to use our club for a make-up spend a minimum of 20 minutes in the site. The program portion of the meeting will provide you with the 20 minutes you need. However, you are invited to visit the entire meeting.
A minimum donation of 5.00 is required and must be separate from any additional contribution. To donate more, please go back to the main menu and click on the Donation link. Make your contribution in the Miscellaneous category.
To receive credit for your visit, please print your $5.00 receipt to give to your club secretary.
