ClubRunner's Week at the RI Convention 2010
With over 15,000 Rotarians in attendance, the Rotary International 2010 Convention in Montreal, Quebec was a great success for ClubRunner.
For 5 days, the ClubRunner booth had a wide variety of activities taking place.  ClubRunner Champions from various countries, had a chance to meet and greet each other, then happily rolled up their sleeves and shared their love for ClubRunner by sharing best practices, evangelizing and just simply showing off their site to up and coming ClubRunner users.  Our booth was always busy and the ClubRunner team was able to successfully connect, collaborate and communicate with hundreds of Rotarians from around the globe.

ClubRunner users had the opportunity to meet out development team and get to share their experiences about how ClubRunner has helped their clubs achieve success. Current and future customers also had the chance to see ClubRunner move into a new era with the launch of Website Designer 2.0, while viewing a live demonstration and enjoying cake and prizes.

ClubRunner and Rotary International had the opportunity to chat with Peter Markos, Chief Information Officer and General Manager for Rotary International, about the future of Rotary and how digital communications will help bring the next generation of Rotarians.  ClubRunner is excited to work with Rotary International on a highly anticipated data integration project which will help pave the way in streamlining communications.  Stay tuned for our interview with Peter Markos. We will be uploading it soon.
On June 22, hundreds of Rotarians participated in ClubRunner’s launch party to celebrate the entrance of a new era! With the Launch of Website Designer 2.0, many current and prospective users viewed the demonstration of how they could make their club and district sites truly distinct and unique and display all the wonderful activities going on in their community! 
Many entered the raffle draw to win an iPod® Touch, but it was awarded to one lucky ClubRunner user – Suzanne Johnson from the Rotary Club of Middle Island. Immediate Past District Governor John Gill of District 6040 helped us to pick the winners and fellowship with all Rotarians who were there! Other items won include free one year subscriptions to ClubRunner and will be announced within a few weeks to all who visited the ClubRunner booth. 
During this party we also celebrated our Champions, who were and continue to be instrumental in our success. As a special thank you, there was an exclusive raffle draw for them as well and the winner for her own personalized iPod® Touch was Ginny Sharples of the Rotary District 5510 (Home Club - Scottsdale North)
Topping off the festivities, everyone shared ideas and experiences while enjoying cake, truly making this event a memorable experience for all! 
To top off the week, ClubRunner supported PolioPlus Foundation with the “Stress Relief for World Relief” program. In exchange for a stress ball, Rotarians and their families generously gave a donation for the cause. ClubRunner was able to raise over $250 for PolioPlus and had the opportunity to present this to the Chairman of the foundation and also had the honour of sharing it with RI President Ray Klinginsmith.
