Why Join Rotary?
Upon joining Rotary you will have immediate access to the following benefits:
Rotary was founded on fellowship, an ideal that remains a major attraction of membership today.
Club members enjoy the fellowship with like-minded people and club projects offer additional opportunities to develop enduring friendships.
Rotary club members who travel have friendly contacts in almost every city in the world.
Rotary clubs have social programs that provide a diversion from your work life. Various functions and conventions provide good entertainment in addition to information, education and service.
Personal Growth and Development
Membership of Rotary continues to provide opportunities for growth and education in human relations and personal development.
Each week at Rotary there is a program designed to keep members informed about community, national and world events.
Guest speakers and timely topics are presented and discussed.
The Development of Ethics
Rotarians practice “The Four-Way Test”, a test that governs our ethical standards.
Rotarians are expected to be ethical in work and personal relationships.
The Opportunity to Serve
Rotary is a service club. Its motto is “Service above Self.”
Rotarians provide community service both 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 self-fulfilment that comes from the process. It is a richly rewarding activity.
Encouraging high ethical standards has been a hallmark of Rotary from its earliest days. Rotarians abide by:
The Four-Way Test - Of the things we think, say or do
► Is it the TRUTH?
► Is it FAIR to all concerned?
► Will it BUILD GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
► Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
No Official Creed
Rotary is a transparent organisation.
There are no secret policies.
It is an open group of diverse members who believe in helping others.
