Benefits of Membership


There are many reasons to join a local Rotary club:




An original goal of Rotary was to allow club members to meet periodically and

enlarge their circle of business and professional acquaintances. As members of

the oldest service club in the world, Rotarians represent a cross-section of their

community’s business owners, executives, managers, political leaders, and

professionals – people who make decisions and influence policy.




Club members have many opportunities for humanitarian service, both locally

and internationally. Service programs address concerns such as health care,

hunger, poverty, illiteracy, and the environment. Rotarians regularly experience

the fulfillment that comes from giving back to the community.




Rotary was founded on fellowship, a cornerstone that continues to attract

members today. Rotarians enjoy camaraderie with like-minded professionals,

and club projects provide opportunities to develop enduring friendships. Club

members who travel have friendly contacts in almost every city of the world.




Rotary sponsors some of the world’s largest exchange and educational

programs. Rotary clubs provide innovative training opportunities and mentoring

for young leaders, and they involve family members in a wide range of social and

service activities.




Encouraging high ethical standards and respect for all worthy vocations has been

a hallmark of Rotary from its earliest days. In their business and professional

lives, Rotarians abide by The Four-Way Test: Of the things we think, say or do


Is it the TRUTH?

Is it FAIR to all concerned?


Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?




Rotary is an organization of successful professionals. Team-building, fundraising,

public speaking, planning, organization, and communication are just some of the

leadership skills that club members can exercise and enhance. Being a Rotary

leader provides further experience in motivating, inspiring, and guiding others.
