Becoming a Member - How to Join


Thank you for your interest in becoming a Rotarian.  Rotary International  is an association of individual clubs, with
each club operating autonomously. Membership is extremely important to us, and we are always eager to hear from individuals
interested in our mission and in joining a Rotary club. The RI universal premise is that the membership of each club
constitutes an accurate representation of the business and professional population within the community served.

Membership in a Rotary club requires available business or professional classification opportunities as well as an
invitation and sponsorship by a member of the club. Sometimes an individual cannot be invited or sponsored for
membership.

Rotarians are business and professional leaders who take an active role in their communities while greatly enriching
their personal and professional lives. A Rotary club contains a diverse group of professional leaders from the
community that the club  serves.

Membership in a Rotary club offers a number of benefits, including:

effecting change within the community
advancing business and professional contacts
developing leadership skills
gaining an understanding of - and having an impact on - international humanitarian issues
 
Through Rotary International's service programs, a Rotary club can have a significant effect on the quality of life
in its community. Rotary Foundation programs offer opportunities to form international partnerships that help people
in need worldwide. Some 1.2  million Rotarians in 30,000 clubs in more than 160 countries make significant contributions
to the quality of life at home and around the globe.
