Information for Prospective Members

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.

Rotary membership is by invitation. If you would like to learn more about the Rotary club in your community and its various service projects, contact your local club. You can also find more information at the Rotary International web site.
