Seaford Rotary is very pleased to announce a new way in which adults can experience being a Rotarian at a modest cost.A new ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP scheme was launched on 1st January 2023 where for 1 year a person can join Seaford Rotary as an associate for a one-off fee of just £25. During that year the member will find out how Seaford Rotary is organised and run, and will be able to be involved with our projects, committees, fund raising events and social occasions. Associates are able to attend any of our weekly lunchtime meetings where we enjoy an excellent meal for £14. The only limitation on being an associate member is the inability to become a formal officer, such as a committee chair, or to vote on key decisions, but of course any feedback will be most welcome. Every associate will be assigned full member as a mentor and will be asked to help with 2 committees during the year.
At the end of the year we would hope that the associate would become a full member of Seaford Rotary having experienced all the fun, friendship and the service we provide to our local community. The £25 associate joining fee will be deducted from the full member one-off joining fee (currently £50). Should the associate discover that Rotary is not for them, then they have the option of simply leaving Seaford Rotary, or signing up as one of our many friends and volunteers (zero cost) who we call upon from time to time to help us with our events, for example with the Christmas sleigh runs. As you would expect Seaford Rotary have the right to terminate any membership for valid reasons.
One lady has already joined as an associate and we hope for many more. As you can see this is an excellent way to find out if Rotary is for you, and that it will provide you with an invaluable insight as to what we do and how we do it. If you are interested then please contact us via our website and click on the Join Us link on the home page. Please indicate that you are interested in Associate or Full Membership and we will get in touch with you.
more On 1st January this year we were very pleased to launch our Associate Membership Scheme. The aim of the scheme is to enable adults to try Rotary for 1 year at a modest cost, before hopefully joining as a full member at the end of the first year.
