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.

First you must contact a club member who will become your sponsor. You must attend two Club meetings as a guest. Between those meetings you will be asked to meet with a Club member who will give you an overview of Rotary, our expectation of members and the cost of membership. Your sponsor will nominate you for Club membership. Following approval by the Board of Directors your nomination for membership is announced to the Club. You will take the final step to become a member by participating in a formal induction ceremony.

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 and 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.
