Next-Gen Themes: The Feedback!

Just under two months ago, we released our brand new Next-Gen website themes (with many more on the way!), and the feedback we've received so far has been nothing short of overwhelming. For that, we must thank you!

Around 200 clubs have already switched to the new themes. A lot of clubs have garnered inspiration and made the design their own, which is our favorite thing to see. We always say that website templates are like a canvas which you can build on. Whether it be by adding the all-new custom carousel, videos or by updating the CSS stylesheet - the point is to be able to represent your club with a website you can be proud of.

Check out a few websites using the Next-Gen themes!

Rotary Club of Barrie
Rotary Club of Chilliwack Fraser
Rotary Club of Sedona
Rotary Club of Chicago Lakeview
Rotary Club of Toronto Beach 
Rotary Club of Palo Alto

Stay tuned for more website templates coming soon! If you haven't yet checked these themes out, head on over to the Theme Library to see what you're missing! Download our help guide to get started.

New "Other User" types for previous honorary members

Did you know about the two new "Other User" types for previous honorary members?

We've added two new "Other User" types for Honorary Members that have left the club, specifically:

  • Past Honorary (Ex-Member)
  • Past Honorary (Deceased)

Currently, when you change the status, the honorary member gets moved to the Other Users list, and from there, if need be, can be deleted. Kindly note, that we are working on implementing a new API from Rotary which will allow us to pass honorary termination information over to the RI database automatically. Currently, this must be done manually.

Upon its release, all honorary members that have left the club will move to the Inactive Members list, and, the system will continue to maintain their history while noting their previous honorary status with the club. Additionally, this information will automatically be sent to RI (if the RI Integration feature is enabled).

Our tentative release date for the new implemented API is early March 2016. Further details on the new API and any impacts will be available closer to the release date.
