The Southern Rensselaer County Rotary Club is involved in a multitude of activities and projects. Club members have asked to be more engaged and participatory in these activities. One way to do this is to have the initiatives spelled out in detail and available to all members so they can choose which they would like to support.

Therefore, we have instituted a process for gathering information about new and established initiatives. Below is a procedural breakdown for how we will introduce this. Plus, links to initiatives already in progress.

Initiative establishment and archiving

An Excel initiative template is available for download (see above), or you may obtain hard copies at our meetings. The template is used to gather data on both new and established club programs.

Matt Smith will be collecting the initiative template from the initiative “owner/s.” Upon receiving the completed templates,  Matthew will update the information to the Initiatives Summary file. The individual templates can be sent electronically to Matt or, if they are hand-written, they can be scanned and emailed to him at

After the initiatives are entered into the database, they also will be accessible via a link webmaster Bill Dowd will create on this page. The database will provide information describing the initiative, date and time it occurs, point person, resources needed, desired club goal, and much more. Members can freely access this database to see what we’re doing and how they can contribute to an initiative of interest to them, or they can begin a new one.
