Interested in Rotary and wondering how you can become involved in some way?

Rotary values diversity and celebrates the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, colour, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status.
Becoming a Member of a Rotary club is a way you could choose to make a real difference. 

Are you considering retirement, or perhaps recently retired? Do you feel it's time to give back? There are opportunities for you to apply your skills and experience to make a difference.

There are many benefits to Rotary membership:

In an increasingly complex world, Rotary provides one of our basic needs: the need for friendship. It is one of the two reasons Rotary was founded in 1905.

The second reason for Rotary’s origination was connecting for business, professional or personal development. Everyone needs to network. Rotary consists of a cross section of the business community, professions, trades and pursuits from all walks of life. Rotarians seek to help each other and collectively help others.

The Opportunity to Serve
Rotary is a service with the motto Service Above Self. Rotarians provide community service locally and internationally. This is perhaps the best reason for becoming a Rotarian: the chance to do something for somebody else and to experience the sense of self-fulfillment that comes from the process. It is a richly rewarding activity.

The Development of Ethics
Rotarians practice a Four Way Test, a test that governs our ethical standards. Rotarians are expected to be ethical in business and personal relationships.

Personal Growth and Development
Membership of Rotary continues to provide opportunities for growth and education in human relations and personal development.

Every Rotary club and District has fellowship activities that provide a diversion from business, professional or usual social life. Conferences, conventions and assemblies also provide good entertainment in addition to information, education and service.

Continuing Education
The Guest Speaker program at meetings keeps members informed about community, national and world issues. 

The People
Rotary is fun; the people make it an enjoyable experience! Many lifelong friendships have emanated from belonging to a Rotary club.Add text here


Avenues of Service

We channel our commitment to service at home and abroad through five Avenues of Service, which are the foundation of club activity.

  • Club Service focuses on making clubs strong. A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships and an active membership development plan.
  • Vocational Service calls on every Rotarian to work with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society. 
  • Community Service encourages every Rotarian to find ways to improve the quality of life for people in their communities and to serve the public interest. 
  • International Service exemplifies our global reach in promoting peace and understanding. We support this service avenue by sponsoring or volunteering on international projects, seeking partners abroad, and more.
  • Youth Service recognises the importance of empowering youth and young professionals through leadership development programs such as Rotaract, Interact, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Rotary Youth Exchange.
