Club Board Roles

The following are more clearly defined
* Committee - Can be used to add other club members to a non defined committee
* Executive Secretary - This position is a semi permanent role for the person responsible for the clubs databases. This person should be tech savy and willing to keep the club records up to date. This person could be a member of another club or larger clubs this could also be an outside professional paid person. The Executive Sectreary would maintain  - District Contact database, Rotary Dound Under subscriptions, and Rotary International - My Rotary  In the absence of this role the club secretary would normally be responsible for these activities.

Member Status -

* Honorary / Life Member
* Rotary Friend - This status can be used to add a non club member to be used for say bulletin distribution, event management, non club member as a board member, email lists etc

My Email List - Can be created by adding & removing members listed in the members contact list or District Members listing.



All users must have their own unique email address. This is a system requirement to identify each person as an individual who belongs to a particular club

There may be some instances where a user (member) is a member of a number of clubs. The way round this could be:
* Set up an alias email. Some email providers allow you to use a number of alias emails that redirect these email to your actual account email.
* In some instances you can create an email address by simply adding '+something' to the end of your actual email name. e.g if your actual email is say then by say adding +1 to this email i.e. would give you your own alias email. Best to test this first. In fact you can add any words after the '+' and before the '@' to create as many unique email addresses to yourself as you like. Google 'adding + to your email' to see more details on how this works

The using the '+' does not work with all email providers. Test the created + email by sending a test email to your self first. If the '+' email does not work then you will need to get another email or an alias email from your provider.
