Why should I join a Rotary club?


 

“My favorite thing about Rotary is that it’s an efficient use of my time. All at once, I’m creating new friendships, making new business contacts, learning how my community works, and participating in the world.”

You’ll make valuable connections with community leaders who care about the issues facing your hometown and hometowns around the world. And you’ll have the chance to apply your personal experience and professional skills to solve these challenges and create positive change.

As a member, you’ll find opportunities to network and develop your professional skills. You can take the lead in developing projects, organizing events, and running your club. Through these activities, you’ll hone your project planning skills, improve your public speaking, and even learn new skills, like public relations, social media, and fundraising.

You’ll spend time with friends and make new ones every week! Make it a family affair. Members are encouraged to invite their spouse or partner, children, and parents to help with service projects and attend club events. Rotary offers opportunities for all ages, from service clubs for youth and young adults (Interact and Rotaract) to exchanges that give young and old alike the chance to explore new cultures.
