Attendance Information:


Your attendance at the weekly meeting of the Club is one of the extremely important aspects of Rotary membership. The emphasis on attendance is dated back to 1922 when Rotary International announced a worldwide attendance contest that motivated thousands of Rotarians to achieve 100 percent attendance year after year.

Although the bylaws of Rotary require members to attend only 60 percent of all meetings, the custom has emerged that 100 percent is the desirable level.

Attendance is important not just for the sake of maintaining records, but it directly affects your Rotary experience. It is, for the most part, at the weekly meeting where you have the opportunity to enjoy the fellowship of the other members of the Club - it is where you learn much of Rotary's involvement in the Community in carrying out the SERVICE aspect of Rotary - and, SERVICE is what ROTARY is all about.
