Why join Rotary?
An original goal of Rotary over 100 years ago was to allow club members to meet periodically and enlarge their circle of business and professional acquaintances. As members of the oldest service club in the world, Rotarians represent a cross-section of their community’s business owners, executives, managers, political leaders, and professionals – people who make decisions and influence policy. Over 20% of Rotarians world-wide are women, higher in the USA, with members aged 25 and up. More information about Rotary International’s 32,000 clubs and the world’s 1.2 million members can be found at www.rotary.org.
Rotary was founded on fellowship, a cornerstone that continues to attract members today. Rotarians enjoy camaraderie with like-minded professionals at our weekly meetings, and club projects and community service events provide opportunities to develop enduring friendships. Club cocktail parties, family picnics, manning a booth at a local festival and bringing the kids out to ride in local parades all bring the members together. Members who travel meet friendly contacts at make-ups in almost every city, in every country, of the world.
Rotary is an organization of successful professionals. Team-building, fundraising, public speaking, planning and organization are just some of the leadership skills that club members can exercise and enhance. Becoming a Rotary leader provides further experience in motivating, inspiring, and guiding others. Many members serve in leadership roles yearly as committee chairs or on the Board of Directors, and training sessions are available both locally and around the state on topics of interest. Many young professionals utilize Rotary leadership training as an effective career and promotion strategy.
Club members have many opportunities for humanitarian service, both locally and internationally. Rotarians regularly experience the fulfillment that comes from giving back to the community. Local service projects vary based on club interest, and may include literacy initiatives, assistance to local Youth Centers or food banks, manning booths at local Festivals and events, or sending local teens to Youth Leadership Conferences. International service projects may include the supply of an aqueduct for drinking water projects or the sponsoring of a year-long foreign exchange student to their city. In 1985, Rotary International set the goal of world-wide eradication of the polio virus by the year 2015.
