ROTARY AT A GLANCE
Rotary brings together a global network of volunteer leaders who dedicate their time and talent to tackle the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges. Rotary connects 1.2 million members from more than 200 countries and geographical areas. Their work impacts lives at both the local and international levels.
WHY JOIN ROTARY?
Friendship & Fun
In a complex world social isolation is increasingly a problem in our community. Rotary provides one of the most basic human needs: the need for friendship and fellowship.
Rotary is engaging, enjoyable, stimulating, hard work and fun.
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.
Personal and Professional Development
Membership in Rotary continues one’s growth and education in human relations enhancing both personal and professional development.
Rotary is an organisation of leaders and successful people learning how to motivate, influence, and lead leaders. Rotary offers the opportunity to develop and enhance leadership skills.
Each week at Rotary there is a program designed to keep one informed about what is going on in the community, nation, and world. Each meeting provides an opportunity to listen to different speakers and a variety of timely topics.
Public Speaking Skills
Many individuals when joining Rotary are uncomfortable or reluctant to speak in public. Rotary develops confidence and skill in public communication and the opportunity to practice and perfect these skills.
Participating as a Rotarian assists the growth and development of one’s profession or vocation. Rotarians also use their vocational skills to mentor others.
The Development of Ethics
Rotarians practice a 4-Way Test that governs one’s ethical standards. Rotarians are expected to be ethical in business and personal relationships.
The Opportunity to Serve
Rotarians provide community service to both local and international communities. This is perhaps the best reason for becoming a Rotarian: the chance to do something for somebody else and to sense the self-fulfilment that comes in the process and return of that satisfaction to one’s own life. It is richly rewarding.
