Prospective Members

Membership Responsibilities

What Rotarians get out of Rotary depends largely on what they put into it. Many membership requirements are designed to help club members more fully participate in and enjoy their Rotary experience.


Attendance

Attending weekly club meetings allows members to enjoy fellowship, enrich their professional and personal knowledge, and meet other business leaders in our community.

If members miss a meeting at our club, they’re encouraged to expand their Rotary horizons by attending a meeting of any other Rotary club within our community or around the world.


Service

By participating in local and international service projects, club members can volunteer their time and talents where they’re most needed.

The Avenues of Service are Rotary’s philosophical cornerstone and the foundation on which club activity is based:

* Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the club’s effective functioning.
* Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards.
* Community Service covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community.
* International Service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace.
* New Generations Service recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities, service projects, and exchange programs.


Finding and keeping members

To keep clubs strong, every Rotarian must share the responsibility of bringing new people into Rotary. Even new members can bring guests to our club meetings or invite them to participate in a service project.


Dues

Club members are required to pay annual dues to our club, district, and Rotary International, as well as the subscription fee for the Rotarian magazine.


Leadership

Club members are encouraged to volunteer for leadership roles at the club level and beyond. To learn more about leadership opportunities in your district, contact our Club President at president@corvallisrotary.org
