Why Join Rotary?

Professional Networking - A founding principle of Rotary is to meet periodically to enjoy camaraderie and enlarge one's circle of business and professional acquaintances. 


Service Opportunities - Club members have many opportunities for humanitarian service, both locally and internationally. Rotary's motto is "Service Above Self." 


International Awareness - with more than 33,000 Rotary clubs in over 200 countries, Rotarians gain an understanding of humanitarian issues through international service projects and exchange programs. 


Friendship - Rotary was founded on fellowship, an ideal that remains a major attraction of membership today. 


Leadership Development - Rotary is an organization of successful professionals. Team building, fundraising, public speaking, planning, organization, and communication are just a sampling of the leadership skills, that club members can exercise and enhance. Being a Rotary leader provides further experience in learning how to motivate, inspire, and guide others. 


Ethical Environment - Encouraging high ethical standards in one's profession and respect for all worthy vocations has been a hallmark of Rotary. 


Diversity in Membership - Rotary's classification system ensures that a club's membership represents a cross section of the community, including leaders in business, industry, the arts, government, sports, the military, and religion. Rotary clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races and creeds.
