Impact starts with our members — people like you who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

At club meetings in communities across the globe, our people of action come together to strengthen their connections to friends and neighbors and their commitment to improving lives.

Who can join?

We’re looking for people who want to give back to their communities.

Rotary clubs also welcome Rotaractors, Rotary Peace Fellows, and other members of the family of Rotary who qualify for membership.

How can I become a member?

Clubs accept new members by invitation. Find the right club here!

What are the benefits?

Becoming a Rotary member connects you with a diverse group of professionals who share your drive to give back. Through regular meetings and events, you’ll:

  • Discuss your community’s needs and develop creative ways to meet them
  • Connect with other leaders who are changing the world
  • Expand your leadership and professional skills
  • Catch up with good friends and meet new ones

Other benefits of membership include:

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

The Rotary International Convention is our biggest event of the year. Rotary members from more than 130 countries meet at the convention each year to celebrate our successes and make plans for the future.

Rotary Fellowships give members the chance to join a group of people who share similar interests, hobbies, or vocations. Some groups use their fellowship to make a positive difference.

Rotarian Action Groups unite Rotary members, family members, program participants and alumni who share their expertise in particular fields by collaborating with clubs and districts on projects.

What’s expected of me?

As a club member, you will be asked to:

  • Pay club dues
  • Attend meetings and events
  • Use your professional skills and talents to make a difference

The Membership Committee seeks to increase membership in clubs while also retaining existing members.

Opportunities for Growth:
New membership is critical to establishing and maintaining vibrant clubs. To do this, the committee holds membership seminars to educate Rotarians about different types of clubs and memberships. Among these are traditional clubs satellite clubs, passport clubs, e-clubs, and Rotaract. The committee also advises on changes from the Council on Legislation as they pertain to membership, such as attendance requirements and meeting flexibility.

The committee is responsible for carrying out district networking events, such as MingleFest. These events take place in different parts of 7450. each time they’re held potential new members are invited to mix and mingle with Rotarians to learn more about the organization and who we are.

Membership is also tasked with monitoring leads and reaching out to inquiries from prospective Rotarians. From there, the Membership Committee chair helps them to determine which clubs could be a good fit by suggesting visits to nearby clubs and reaching out to their leadership.

Membership Retention:
Perhaps even more important than gaining members, it’s crucial that Rotary clubs retain their members, as well. To help clubs with retention, the Membership Committee educates clubs on using the Rotary Club Health Check. This survey helps club leadership to identify their areas of strength and weakness, and to diagnose any maladies in their club that may negatively affect membership.
