Making the most of Rotary’s online tools

District 9810 has conducted a series of digital workshops recently to give incoming leaders in Rotary District 9810, access to a singularity portal and training on how to use various Rotary online tools to manage their clubs and publicise Rotary’s good works. D9810 Innovation Committee participants walked through how to register on Rotary.org, edit their profiles, share a project on Rotary Showcase, and much more.
Our district leaders were so excited about the results that they called for additional workshops to be held throughout the district to teach incoming club officers. I strongly encourage you to consider conducting a workshop to give your club and district officers hands-on experience with these tools.
Technology is transforming our world, and making it possible to share instantly through social media. We must keep up. As a regular visitor to Rotary.org, I explore the website almost every day for at least an hour. But not every Rotary leader is tech savvy. These workshops assist those less familiar with online tools on how to make the most of Rotary Club CentralRotary ShowcaseRotary IdeasDiscussion Groups, the Brand Center, this Rotary Voices blog, the Learning Center, and others.
