What is Rotary Direct?    A new way of doing Rotary.

Direct membership gives individuals the chance to join Rotary as an organization, meaning you are'nt limited to just one club but instead join a much busier environment and are able to work across muliple projects.

The Rotary Direct Membership Network complements and works alongside existing clubs and embraces technology by operating in a virtual space, connecting like-minded people who share a passion for specific causes, locally, nationally and internationally.

Rotary connects people to make a positive impact in the world.

How does it work?

The Rotary Direct Membership Network is all located in a Microsoft Teams environment. This brings people together online 24/7 and allows for full flexibility when you take part in Rotary activities compared to the fixed traditional weekly meetings that face-to-face clubs have.

As a direct member, you can not only have access to the fully online environment with seminars and workshops on the Direct Membership Network, but you can also work with any Rotary club local to you on their projects.

Whether you are at home or on holiday you can contact the local club and join in on their events or attend meetings to further expand your Rotary knowledge and form more connections.

Rotary brings together people from all walks of life. Joining a local Rotary club provides friendship, fellowship of like-minded people and, as a result of working together, provides help and support for the local community as well as helping support international projects and disasters.

Develop your skills - You can share your personal and vocational skills, take up leadership roles, as well as learning from fellow members on activities such as project planning, communications and service delivery.

Enhance your understanding - Events such as the annual Rotary Showcase and the international Convention offer opportunities to be inspired by guest speakers and develop your global understanding.

Business opprtunities - Rotary was founded as a business networking group, and this still plays a part in Rotary today. Making connections with other members can enhance your professional life.
