Six Reasons for joining Rotary

The Rotary movement isn’t what it used to be! It’s a vibrant exciting opportunity to make lifelong friends and make a difference to your local community and further afield. There’s no other movement like it! Our top six reasons are:

Make friends: this was the reason Rotary started over a hundred years ago and it is still the number one reason to become involved. Through our network in 160 countries, Rotary people have likeminded friends wherever they wander.

Improve your social life: Rotary clubs are focussed on having a good time! They organise many social events to suit all tastes ranging from wine tasting and theatre trips to attendance at conferences and cultural events.

Help your community: everyone gets the chance to work in projects aimed at helping their local community. Projects cover all parts of the community from the young and disadvantaged to the elderly. We make a real difference to many people’s lives!

Get some international experience: there are also many opportunities to become involved in international projects and exchange visits. These are mainly, but not exclusively, in the emerging nations, with great experiences for everyone.

Improve your skills: you can improve a whole range of skills by joining us - leadership, management, communication, organisation and planning to name a few.

Networking: those in business and professional life find this a valuable aspect of Rotary. If you have a problem you can usually find someone who can help.
