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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
