How Do I Join Rotary ?

Rotarians are members of Rotary clubs.

New members can get involved in their clubs, communities and the world through Rotary. Rotary's motto "Service Above Self" exemplifies the humanitarian spirit of the organization's more than 1.2 million members. Strong fellowship among Rotarians and meaningful community and international service projects characterize Rotary worldwide.

The club is the cornerstone of Rotary, where the most meaningful work is carried out. All effective Rotary clubs are responsible for four key elements:

  • sustaining or increasing their membership base
  • participating in service projects that benefit their own community and those in other countries
  • supporting The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International financially and through program participation
  • developing leaders capable of serving in Rotary beyond the club level.

Membership of Rotary is open by invitation to adult persons of good character and good business, professional and/or community reputation. Each member shall be classified in accordance with the member's business, profession, or type of community service with the intention that there is a diversity of backgrounds and experiences. 

If you would like to know more about Rotary, please complete the form below or contact the Director of Membership, Clare Bennett, 0439652325. Clare will then be in contact with you to arrange a meeting where your questions can be answered. You can also ask to be invited to a meeting of the Club as our guest where you can gain a better understanding of the activities and fellowship of our members.

The Director or a member who already knows you may then submit your name to the Board for consideration. If passed by the Board, an Invitation to Membership will be offered to you. If you wished to proceed further your name would then be submitted to the members for their approval.

For membership enquiries, please contact our Director of Membership, Robert McDougall on 0408 058 532.
