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. Every Rotary club and district 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.
Clubs organise programmes and weekly meetings to keep members informed about what is going on in the community, the country, and the world. Each meeting provides an opportunity to listen to different speakers on a variety of current topics.
Every Rotarian is welcome - even encouraged - to attend any of the 29,000 clubs in 194 nations 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.
How to Join Rotary
If Rotary sounds like the organisation for you, we'd like to hear from you! Simply drop us an email, giving your name, address and postcode so that we can suggest some 'open events' at clubs local to you, where you can find out more and and ask all the questions you like.
When you join Rotary, you can be sure that the enormous sense of achievement that you'll experience helping your local community - and even communities around the world - will be matched only by the fun that you'll have doing it!
Clubs all over the World have ambitious plans, so they're looking for more men and women aged over 30 to bring their energy, business skills and sense of humour to make a real difference to the lives of others. (If you're under 30 we have two linked organisations - Rotoract and Interact.)
Every Rotary club has a different 'personality' and offers a different range of benefits so it's well worth trying out a few of your local clubs and meeting their members to find the one that suits you best. Just make contact via the club websites and you'll be guaranteed of a warm welcome wherever you visit.
