Every new Rotarian brings a range of personal and professional resources that can greatly strengthen your club's ability to serve throughout the community and the world.

Information for Prospective Rotarians:

Rotary International is one of the world's largest service organizations, with some 33,000 clubs in more than 200 countries. Annually, Rotary clubs worldwide invite a limited number of men and women to become members. These prospective members represent various businesses and professional activities in their communities. As a progressive-minded business or professional person, you will see that belonging to a Rotary club, where outstanding representatives of the different vocations in your community come together, has its benefits. 

To be invited, you must be: 

  • A leading representative of your business or professional activity
  • Willing to help and participate in projects that enhance your community
  • Willing to work on projects that help people in developing countries and promote international understanding and goodwill 

    Rotary clubs provide: 

  • Friendships with other managerial and professional leaders in your community
  • Prestige of membership in a worldwide organization
  • Ongoing practical education
  • A networking of people who can help you become more successful
  • Promotion of higher ethical standards in your business or profession
  • Projects to enhance your community
  • Help for communities in countries around the world 

    Often a person being considered for membership is invited by a member/sponsor to attend one or more club meetings to learn more about Rotary. The sponsor may then submit the name of the candidate to the club's membership committee.      

  • Responsibilities of Memberships:

    Rotary club membership carries with it certain responsibilities. 

  • Members are expected to attend weekly programs of the club. Opportunities to make up attendance include attending the regular meeting of another Rotary club, attending various other Rotary meetings, or attending a club service project authorized by the club board of directors.
