Web Conference Product Offer for Rotarians

Web conferences, or Webinars, are a cost-effective and efficient method of communicating with your audience. Now Rotarians are able to take advantage of discounted rates for two Web conferencing products from Citrix Online.

GoToMeeting, a product for smaller groups, allows you to host online meetings and collaborate with up to 15 attendees.

GoToWebinar, designed for larger groups, provides a simple way to create, present, and record meetings of up to 1000 people. Both products allow for unlimited usage for a monthly flat fee.

Districts, Clubs, and Rotarians are all eligible for a 15% discount and 60-day free trials of both GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar.

As RRIMC, consider hosting regional training seminars, planning meetings, and other team meetings using these or other Web-based conference tools. Though not a perfect replacement for every meeting, the benefits of online meetings are convenience, cost-savings, and the ability to reach people who might not be able to travel to your other meetings.

The Membership Development & Research division recently held a Webinar for RRIMCs on planning regional membership seminars, as well as several online focus groups with younger Rotarians. A Webinar on retention (geared toward District Governors and District Membership Chairs) is planned before the end of the year.

If you have already hosted online meetings, feel free to share your experiences in the comments section of the blog so that all RRIMCs can benefit from your knowledge.
