How to become a Rotarian
If Rotary sounds like the organisation for you, we'd like to hear from you! Simply send an email using our "Contact Form" page, telling us how you found out about Rotary and giving your name, address and postcode so that we can suggest a club local to you, where you can find out more 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 West of Scotland have ambitious plans, so they're looking for more men and women to bring their energy, business skills and sense of humour to make a real difference to the lives of others
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.

We know that there are some misconceptions about Rotary, so to hear what 'ordinary' members of Rotary clubs have to say about this extraordinary organisation and what being part of it means to them, please click this video link http://vimeo.com/6098353
Club members, as stated in the Rotary Club Constitution, should be "adult persons of good character and good business, professional and/or community reputation" and agree to uphold high moral and ethical standards in their "personal, business and community life" as well as in their interaction with other people generally.
Please note that "membership of a club is by invitation only, at the discretion of the members." It is important, therefore, that you take time to visit your prospective club on a few occasions to ensure not only that you get to know its members and that you will feel happy being part of the club, but also that you give its members a chance to get to know you.
