Responsibilities of Membership

Rotary club membership carries with it certain responsibilities.
  • Members are expected to attend weekly programs of the club. Opportunities to make up attendance include attending the regular meeting of another Rotary club, attending various other Rotary meetings, or attending a club service project authorized by the club board of directors.
  • Members are required to pay annual dues to their clubs, their districts, and to Rotary International.
  • Members are expected to participate in local or international activities or projects of the Rotary club.
  • Clubs encourage members to aspire to leadership or committee roles within their clubs.
  • Through Rotary's service programs, a Rotary club can have a significant effect on the quality of life in its community. Programs of The Rotary Foundation offer opportunities to form international partnerships that help people in need worldwide. More than 1.2 million Rotarians make significant contributions to the quality of life at home and around the globe.
