A Rotary ‘Satellite Club’ provides for people who like what Rotary does through hearing about Rotary from their local Rotary Club and wish to become more involved. But, they don’t wish to join that Club for a variety of reasons; it might just be that Club’s meeting time or style. Rotary Satellite Club members are Rotarians but they choose how and when they meet. That can be wholly or partially through social media, in a café, pub or community room – whatever suits the members.Rotary Club of Buxton want to start a ‘Satellite Club’ because they know there are people in the local community who want to give something back. They see Rotary as one way of doing that, but don’t want to become Rotary Club of Buxton members (much as the Club would like them to).
If that sparks interest in being allied through ‘Satellite Club’ membership, then please get in touch with Rotarian Ian Priestley
