Why Join Rotary?

About Rotary

Rotary is a worldwide organization of successful business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world.

Leadership Development

Team building, fundraising, public speaking, planning, organization, and communication are just a sampling of the leadership skills that club members can exercise and enhance. Being a Rotary leader provides further experience in learning how to motivate, inspire, and guide others.

Good Citizenship

Weekly Rotary Club programs keep members informed about what is taking place in the community, nation, and world and motivated to make a difference.

Friendship

Rotary was founded on fellowship, an ideal that remains a major attraction of membership today. Club members enjoy the camaraderie with like-minded professionals, and club projects offer additional opportunities to develop enduring friendships. Rotary Club members who travel have friendly contacts in almost every city in the world.

Professional Networking

A founding principle of Rotary was to meet periodically to enjoy camaraderie and enlarge one's circle of business and professional acquaintances. As the oldest service club in the world, Rotary Club members represent a cross-section of the community's owners, executives, managers, political leaders, and professionals - people who make decisions and influence policy. Service Opportunities

Club members have many opportunities for humanitarian service, both locally and internationally. Service programs address such concerns as health care, hunger, poverty, illiteracy, and the environment. Rotarians experience the fulfillment that comes from giving back to the community.

International Awareness

Approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to over 32,000 Rotary Clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. As a result, Rotarians gain an understanding of humanitarian issues through international service projects and exchange programs. One of Rotary's highest objectives is to build goodwill and peace throughout the world.

Family Foundations

Rotary sponsors some of the world's largest youth exchange, educational exchange, and scholarship programs. Rotary Clubs provide innovative training opportunities and mentoring for young leaders and involve family members in a wide range of social and service activities.

Diversity in Membership

Rotary's classification system ensures that a club's membership represents a variety of the community's professional men and women, including leaders in business, industry, the arts, government, sports, the military, and religion. Rotary Clubs are non-political, non-religious, and open to men and women in all cultures, races, and creeds.
