How to Join

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Rotarian. Rotary International is an association of individual clubs, with each club operating autonomously. Membership is extremely important to us, and we are always eager to hear from individuals interested in our mission and in joining a Rotary club. The Rotary International universal premise is that the membership of each club constitutes an accurate representation of the business and professional population within the community served.

Rotarians are business, home, retired and professional leaders who take an active role in their communities while greatly enriching their personal and professional lives. We welcome diversity and encourage inclusivity!

Membership in a Rotary club offers a number of benefits, including:

  • effecting change within the community
  • advancing business and professional contacts
  • developing leadership skills
  • gaining an understanding of – and having an impact on – international humanitarian issues

Through Rotary International’s service programs, a Rotary club can have a significant effect on the quality of life in its community. Rotary Foundation programs offer opportunities to form international partnerships that help people in need worldwide. Some 1.2  million Rotarians in 30,000 clubs in more than 160 countries make significant contributions to the quality of life at home and around the globe.
