In an increasingly complex world, Rotary provides one of the most basic human needs: the need for friendship and fellowship. It is one of two reasons why Rotary began in 1905.

Business Development

The second original reason for Rotary's

beginning is business development.

Everyone needs to network. Rotary consists

of a cross-section of every business

community. Its members come from all walks

of life. Rotarians help each other and

collectively help others. 

Citizenship in the Community

Membership in a Rotary club helps develop better community citizens. The average Rotary club consists of the most active citizens of any community. 

Fun – with a purpose

Rotary is doing worthy things and having fun doing them. 










Assistance when Travelling

Traveling Rotarians can secure medical and professional assistance as well as services and advice from fellow Rotarians in Clubs throughout the world. 

Public Speaking Skills

Many individuals who joined Rotary were uncomfortable about speaking in public. Rotary develops confidence and skill in public communication and the opportunity to practice and perfect these skills. 

Development of Social Skills

Every meeting and at various events and functions, Rotary develops one's personality, social skills and people skills. Rotary is for people who like people. 

Family Programmes

Rotary provides one of the world's largest youth exchange programs; high school and college clubs for future Rotarians; opportunities for spouse involvement; and a host of activities designed to help family members in growth and the development of family values.

Development of Ethics

Rotarians practice a 4-Way Test that

governs their ethical standards. Rotarians

are expected to be ethical in business and

personal relationships. 

Nice People

Rotarians are nice people! 

Opportunity to Serve

As a service club, Rotary's business is

mankind and its product is service.

This is perhaps the best reason for becoming a Rotarian: the chance to do good. 

The number 1 question a prospective member asks is “why should I join Rotary?”
