Started in early 2007 by 2 rotarians, Robert Keast and Bruce Walker to service Rotary District 9680 websites and administration needs.
The project scope was expanded to Australia wide before it was launched, with clubs and districts in other areas of Australia expressing a wish use the RotaryNews.Info web application. Launched at the 2007 District 9680 conference it was an immediate success and in the following years the district provided training in its use to any Rotarian from within and surrounding districts.
The original site page design was provided by a student from Hornby TAFE. Application programming and design integration has been provided by Bruce Walker. Robert Keast provided the concept and initial support, he withdrew from the project in 2010 to focus on his successful business.
