We strive to be a premier knowledge club in Rotary by using our professional skills in our service work and creating learning opportunities for our members, other Rotarians, and people of goodwill around the world. 

Our program of online seminars contributes to that objective by enabling you to learn from global experts in their field. You are welcome to attend seminars online, typically on the first and third Tuesdays of the month at 12:30 PM EST, but if you are not a member of our club, we need you to register for each seminar you would like to attend.
