PERSONAL BENEFITS AND MEMBERSHIP COSTS

 

Membership in a Rotary club offers a number of benefits, including:

·          Effecting change within the community

·          Advancing business and professional contacts

·          Developing leadership skills

·          Gaining an understanding of, and having an impact on, international humanitarian issues
(Your personal goal must be to attain all four of these ends: our impact is felt as we effect change, lead, and gain understanding WHILE we advance our business contacts.)

 

To be a Rotarian, you must give your time, talents, and financial support to the following:

·          Community work, here, and abroad if you choose

·          Social functions

·          Club and District activities
