Benefits of membership
As a large and diverse organisation, Rotary provides individuals with the power to help those in need. There are countless opportunities to make a difference to those less fortunate than ourselves.
In an increasingly complex world, Rotary maintains a simple philosophy - make friends in your own community and throughout the world.
Giving back to the community
Through Rotary, service to local and overseas communities is well organised and rewarding. If you like helping others, here is your chance to do something worthwhile and make a real difference.
Fun and entertainment
Rotary is fun... a lot of fun. Rotary arranges parties and activities that provide a welcome distraction to a hectic business life.
Networking opportunities are endless. Rotary consists of a cross-section from every business community and its members come from all walks of life. Rotarians help each other and collectively help others.
Personal growth and development
Membership of Rotary develops leadership, public speaking, social, business, personal and vocational skills as well as improving cultural awareness.
Programmes and weekly meetings keep members informed about what is going on in the community, the country, and the world. Each meeting provides an opportunity to listen to a different view on a variety of current topics.
Every Rotarian is welcome - even encouraged - to attend any of the 33,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical regions. This bond creates an instant friendship wherever you are in the world. Many a Rotarian in need of a local doctor, lawyer, hotel, dentist, or other expertise while travelling has found assistance through Rotary.
