Rotary is 1.2 million passionate individuals in 35,000+ clubs worldwide. We are both an international organization and a local community leader. Together we lead change in our own backyards and across the world.
How Our Membership Works
Rotary club members are men and women of all ages and professional backgrounds who use their talents, skills, and energy to improve the lives of people in communities at home and around the world.
Membership in a Rotary club is by invitation only. We want to make sure you join a club that best fits your passion and perspective.
We can connect you with a club that’s right for you and make it easy to get involved and on your way to membership immediately.
Path to Joining Us
1. You Express Interest
Let us know a little about yourself and what you’re looking for in a club. We’ll find the local clubs in your area and let them know you’re interested.
2. Rotary Matches You With A Club
Based on your preferences and interests, Rotary leaders in your community will match you with the local club that fits you best.
3. A Local Club Contacts You
A Rotary club member will contact you by email or phone to discuss your interest in Rotary. You’ll be invited to get to know the club better by attending a club meeting, a social event, or even to join in on a service project as a volunteer.
4. The Club Invites You To Join
Now that you and a local club have spent some time together and determined that you’re a good fit for each other, you will be invited to join. Each club has its own ways of welcoming new members; they may hold a ceremony for you.
5. You’re A Member!
Enjoy getting involved in your new club as a Rotary member. Join a committee. Lead a service project. Organize a social event. Lead and contribute to your new club.
