ROSNF Chair Chat August 7

Fellow ROSNF members:

This week the ROSNF Facebook application under development was renamed to ROSNF Global Club Directory. The documentation for this application which includes link to the actual application and database schema is located here:

The original application required that each club have a group on Facebook. The new ROSNF GCD application has been updated to support Rotary Clubs, Rotaract Clubs, Interact Clubs, and Rotary E-Clubs where each club can have link to a Facebook page, Facebook group, or a website. Since ROSNF GCD is a Facebook application for Facebook users, it is preferred that each club have a Facebook page which club members and the global user community on Facebook can see and “like”. If you are looking for tips on how to create a Facebook page for your club, there are useful resources here:

In other news this week, ROSNF received notice and sample form to submit its annual report to RI which is due by October 1. Currently we have 944 registered members on and we hope to be over 1,000 when we are ready to file our report.
If you prefer the LinkedIn social network instead of Facebook, ROSNF invites you to join and participate in the ROSNF Group on LinkedIn. In addition, all members regardless of the social networks they use, are welcome to participate in the Member Lounge group here:

If you are looking for an opportunity to meet ROSNF members face to face, be sure you sign up for the RI Convention in Bangkok. ROSNF Board member Gus Goh has volunteered to chair the ROSNF Convention Committee this year and there will be a ROSNF booth in the House of Friendship in Bangkok where you can meet fellow ROSNF members and also buy a ROSNF “Like” button. If you are going to the convention, consider volunteering to help Gus by requesting to join the Convention Committee Group here:
