|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 our club.
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. The programs of The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International offer opportunities to form international partnerships that help people in need worldwide. Some 1.2 million Rotarians in over 30,000 clubs in over 160 countries make significant contributions to the quality of life at home and around the globe.
