Interested in Rotary and wondering how you can become involved in some way?
Becoming a Member of a Rotary club is a way you could choose to make a real difference
There are many benefits to Rotary membership:
In an increasingly complex world, Rotary provides one of our basic needs: the need for friendship. It is one of the two reasons Rotary was founded in 1905.
The second reason for Rotary’s origination was business development. Everyone needs to network. Rotary consists of a cross section of the business community, from all walks of life. Rotarians seek to help each other and collectively help others.
The Opportunity to Serve
Rotary is a service with the motto Service Above Self. Rotarians provide community service locally and internationally. This is perhaps the best reason for becoming a Rotarian: the chance to do something for somebody else and to experience the self-fulfilment that comes from the process. It is a richly rewarding activity.
The Development of Ethics
Rotarians practise a Four Way Test, a test that governs our ethical standards. Rotarians are expected to be ethical in business and personal relationships.
Personal Growth and Development
Membership of Rotary continues to provide opportunities for growth and education in human relations and personal development.
Every Rotary club and District has fellowship activities that provide a diversion from business life. Conferences, conventions and assemblies also provide good entertainment in addition to information, education and service.
Each week at Rotary there is a program designed to keep members informed about community, national and world events. Guest speakers and timely topics are presented and discussed.
Rotary is fun; the people make it an enjoyable experience! Many lifelong friendships have emanated from belonging to a Rotary club.
Rotary Clubs are encouraged to contact the District's Membership and Development and Promotion Committee for more information.
Of course the best way to find out more about Rotary is to visit a Rotary meeting and find out for yourself. You will be warmly welcomed whether you are interested in joining or if you simply would like to learn more about how Rotary works...
