What is Rotary and why would I join?
Becoming and being a Rotarian
Rotary is an international service organization whose stated purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian service and to advance goodwill and peace around the world.
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.Rotary is a non-political, non-religious humanitarian organization. Each Rotary club uses its own judgment in conducting its meetings in a manner that reflects Rotary's principle of tolerance and emphasizes shared Rotarian service ideals and projects.
We are a local club of business and professional men and women that is a member of a world-wide organization of similar clubs (Rotary International) devoted to serving the community and promoting world peace.
Please note that membership in a Rotary club is by invitation only. Often, a person being considered for membership is invited by a club member, or sponsor, to attend one or more club meetings to learn more about Rotary. In this case, the sponsor submits the candidate's name to the club's membership committee.
