ROTARYfirst: Magazine & E-Bulletin
ROTARYfirst is the title of the District1010 Magazine and E-Bulletin
We would like to resurrect the E-Bulletin.
We would also like to improve the model and the process to provide clubs with a good advertising and marketing service as well as an opportunity to share their good practice and activities of interest.
The process will be:
- Clubs will take photos and videos at their events and email/share these with the E-Bulletin editor. A short article (100 to 250 words) should be sent along with the photos. If clubs have created a Poster for their event, and have it in digital format, this could be sent instead or as well as the former.
- They should send well before an event if they want to advertise. Or immediately following an event they want to report.
- District will:
b. Immediately post them on the Districts’ facebook page and the District website to the right or below this.
c. Provide a link to a collection of the previous month’s articles in the District Digest. This for Rotarians who prefer not to use facebook
d. When the time comes to create the Magazine, select appropriate articles from those submitted and ask the providers to expand on them for publication.
e. Ask clubs and Rotarians to “Like” the Scotland North facebook Posts page so that they will receive immediate notification of the articles being posted there. Those who prefer may just wait for the monthly summary. If the post is of interest to your club "Share" it with your members.
4. Rotarians may then access the E-Bulletin by a variety of methods to suit their needs:
a. View the articles as soon as they are posted on facebook Scotland North Rotary
b. View the articles as soon as they are posted on the website (This page.)
c. Follow the link in the Digest to see a summary of the previous months articles
d. Visit the website to access the E-Bulletin and Magazine archive. (This page.)

• Proof reading
• Chasing up articles
• Finding advertising and sponsorship for the magazine (and e-bulletin)
• Distributing magazines.
