Guest Speaker
Anna shared some technology tips with us for accessing and utilizing club runner as well as My Rotary. Anna gave us a quick tutorial on how to send emails from club runner as well as where and how to access club documents such as community funding applications and expense claim forms.
If you have not set up a “My Rotary” account please do so at and clicking on “My Rotary” at the top of the page. Your email must match the one that Rotary International has on record for you. This is different than your login for Club Runner and will help you access your donation reports as well as access other Rotary related information and documents.
