New ways to link to RI's database
Three database providers -- ClubRunner, DaCdb, and Svensk Rotary Service (a Swedish multidistrict group) -- are now official partners on the OneRotary project.
OneRotary allows Rotary clubs and districts that are using these vendors to link their databases directly to the main membership database maintained at RI World Headquarters. This simplifies how Rotary clubs and districts communicate with Rotary International. For example, when a club member's contact information is updated in a club's database, the information is automatically updated in RI's database as well. This integration eliminates duplicate data entry efforts and leads to more accurate information, such as on semiannual reports.
ClubRunner led the way by joining the project in November. DaCdb and Svensk soon followed, and other database providers are working to join OneRotary in the future.
How to participate if you use ClubRunner, DaCdb, or Svensk Rotary Service
Club or district officers must first log on to Member Access and authorize their website or database vendor through the club data form. Then they should contact their database provider for assistance and step-by-step documentation and instructions.
Participation is voluntary. Clubs and districts retain their autonomy and may opt in or out of OneRotary at any time. For security and privacy reasons, a club can only view and update its own member information.
