Is the Rotary Club for you? 

Rotary Mission:

The mission of Rotary is to provide service to others, to promote high ethical standards, and to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.

Rewards and Commitment: Is Rotary for you?

To become a Rotarian, you must be invited to join a Rotary club by a member of that club.

A qualified candidate for Rotary club membership is an adult of good character and good business, professional or community reputation. The candidate fits one of the following criteria:

  • Holds or has held a position with discretionary authority in any worthy and recognized business or profession
  • Served or has served as a community leader
  • Is a Rotary foundation Alumnus or Alumna.

Responsibilities of club membership:

The club is the cornerstone of Rotary, where the most meaningful work is carried out.

What Rotarians get out of Rotary depends on what they put into it. Many membership requirements are designed to help members more fully participate in and enjoy their Rotary experience.


Attending weekly club meetings allows members to enjoy their club's fellowship, enrich their professional and personal knowledge, and meet other business leaders in their community.

If members miss their own club meeting, they are encouraged to expand their Rotary horizons by attending make-up meetings at any rotary club in the world - a practice that guarantees Rotarians a warm welcome in communities around the globe.


All Rotary clubs share a key mission: to serve their community and those in need throughout the world. By participating in club service projects, members learn about their club's involvement in local and international projects and can volunteer their time and talents where they are most needed.

Finding and keeping members:

To keep clubs strong, every Rotarian must share the responsibility of bringing new people into Rotary.

The ideal composition of a Rotary club reflects the community's demographics, including professions, gender, age, and ethnicity. Such diversity enriches every aspect of the club's fellowship and service.
