While every month can serve as Membership & New Club Development Month, August is a good month to celebrate our Rotary club, our members, and the good we do in your community and around the world. If you haven't recommended a new Rotary member yet during this Rotary year, now would be a great time to get started. Everything Rotarians, Rotaractors and Interactors need to know about membership to assist you can be found on My Rotary - under Membership.

You need Rotary because
  • You care about your community and want to be involved with people who share your commitment.
  • You like to be associated with people and ideas that really make a difference in your world.
  • You believe in service. You know that our world is enriched by women and men like yourself, and you want to do your part.
  • You have talents that you are willing to share.
  • You like to have fun. You like to be around people who enjoy what they are doing, whether working, or volunteering, or just socializing.
Rotary needs you because
  • Rotary needs need talented people like you to be an effective organization serving their community.
  • You are a leader in your community. Whether you are outgoing or reserved, Rotary needs leaders like you.
  • Rotary needs people with new energy and new ideas.
  • Rotary is a highly regarded international organization that makes things happen – locally, nationally, and internationally. But nothing happens without the efforts of people like you.

There is a Rotary club near you. CLICK HERE to locate a club in your area. In some communities there will be several clubs, each with its own character, projects, and focus.  

There are several ways to engage your local Rotary club. You are welcome at Rotary clubs’ regular meetings. Participating in a club project or event is a good way to experience your local Rotary club, first-hand. You may personally know a member of Rotary. Talk to her/him and don't be reluctant to ask straightforward questions about their club and what being in Rotary means to them.
