When you need to miss a meeting, there are several ways to make up for the absence.  Below are just a few suggestions:

Attend a club function

Club socials

Committee meetings

Salvation Army Bell Ringing

Colerain Gift Wrapping & Party


Kids ‘n Kamp Holiday Party

Dictionary project

Board meetings

Fishing excursions

Youth Exchange parties


Attend another Rotary Club Meeting

Check with the club bulletin or Rotary online to find a club near you. Be sure to bring back some kind of proof of attendance. Most clubs have a make-up card. You can also bring one of their bulletins back to the Columbus club secretary.


Attend a District Rotary Function

Any Rotary District function counts as a make-up

District Conference

District Planning Sessions

PETs Training Sessions

Rotaract meetings or functions (University of Oklahoma)

Rotary Youth Exchange Student planning sessions or functions

GSE team functions

Rotary Zone meetings


Online Makeup

You can go online at http://www.rotaryeclubone.org/ to do a makeup.

When you finish the exercise you choose, be sure to enter your e-mail address two times in the blanks provided. In the third blank, enter your club secretary’s e-mail address (scott@columbusrotary.org)  Also print out a copy of the e-make up in case something happens and it does not get sent to the club secretary.


Report Make-ups to Your Club Secretary!!!!!!!!

Anytime you have participated in a Rotary function and need it recorded as a make-up, please contact your club secretary. Here is what the secretary will need to know:

• Function Name

• Function location

• Function date

• What missed meeting you would like to apply the make-up.


Be sure to follow up with you club secretary to make sure they have received and recorded them.
