GUIDE FOR PROSPECTIVE AND NEW MEMBERS


Produced by the membership committee of the Rotary Club of Golden, this guide contains information about the introduction of prospective members to the club.  It discusses certain membership opportunities, responsibilities, and the acclimation of new members.  This guide is an accompaniment to the club's MEMBER HANDBOOK which was produced and was updated by charter member Dana Moran.  The purpose of providing this information, here and in the Handbook, is:

 

To give you an overview of Rotary International and Golden Rotary;
To let you know what you may expect of your membership;
To let you know what our club will expect of you as a member (principal to these two items is Sections 1 and 2 of the Handbook), and;

To quickly become a comfortable, happy and integrated member, your study of both documents is required.

Rotary International is one of the world's largest service organizations.  A club's membership is meant to be an up-to-date and progressive representation of the community's business, vocational, and professional interests.


Through local and Rotary International service programs, our Rotary club can have a significant effect on quality of life in the world.  Rotary Foundation programs offer opportunities to form international partnerships that help people in need worldwide.  Over 1.2 million Rotarians in 35,000 autonomous clubs in more than 209 countries make a difference in the lives of humans in their local areas and around the globe.
