The 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.

In a complex world, Rotary maintains a simple philosophy - make friends in your own community and throughout the world.

Giving back to the community
Service to local and overseas communities is well organised and rewarding.   If you like helping others, here is your chance to do something worthwhile.

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.

Business development
Rotarians come from every business community and 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.

Continued learning
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 hear speakers on a variety of current topics.

Travel opportunities
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.
