Jen began with information on the Rotary District and Club Database site: www.dacdb.com/.

Club members can sign on and update their own data.

Using it’s simple username and password entry, Rod explained all that the site contains including membership listing, volunteer sign-up sheets and how to use it. Each member can get into the site and update their profile and information. Fortunately, you cannot update someone else’s information.
Lou presented a site that he has put together in which he has stored our club’s historical data, photos and information. Each club member can contact Lou and request to become a member in order to add information to the site.
