Why Join Rotary?

Rotary brings together people from all walks of life. Getting involved with Rotary provides benefits to not only communities, but our members as well.

Social networking

Rotary is a great way to expand your social circles, meet new people and make lasting friendships, all while having fun and making a difference.

Develop your skills

You can share your personal and vocational skills, take up leadership roles, as well as learning from fellow members on activities such as project planning, communications and service delivery.

Enhance your understanding

Events such as the annual Rotary Showcase and the international Convention offer opportunities to be inspired by guest speakers and develop your global understanding.

Business opportunities

Rotary was founded as a business networking group, and this still plays a part in Rotary today. Making connections with other members can enhance your professional life.

Enjoy rewards

Rotary Global Rewards, our member benefits programme, offers discounts on products and services. It’s Rotary’s way of helping our members spend less so they can do more.

Work with leading organisations

Rotary’s reputation has allowed us to establish relationships with leading national and international charities, putting us at the forefront of change.

Be part of a global community

With 1.2 million members in 35,000 clubs in over 200 countries, Rotary is a global network of neighbours, friends and problem solvers making a difference in our communities.

Once we receive your email, our Membership Chair 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 we have spent some time together and determined that we’re a good fit for each other, you will be invited to join. Once you complete your membership application a 7-day letter is sent to the current membership. If there is no objection from anyone in the current membership you will be approved for membership. You will be sent an invoice for the Club dues etc. and a date for your induction ceremony where you are encouraged to invite your friends and family as well.  The President or another Senior member of the club will formally induct you into the club.

Enjoy getting involved in your new club as a Rotary member. Get involved. Join a committee. Lead a service project. Organize a social event. Lead and contribute to your new club. Remember just like anything else, you get out of your membership in proportion to what you put in.
