Qualifications for membership
We’re looking for more men and women of all ages and backgrounds to join our network of Rotary clubs throughout Great Britain and Ireland, to use their time, talents, professional skills and energy to improving the lives of people in their local communities and others around the world. And, in the process, you can enjoy the benefits of business networking, personal development, meeting new friends, hearing inspiring speakers, having a great deal of fun and experiencing that special sense of fulfilment that comes from achieving something really worthwhile.
What are the responsibilities of membership?
We meet weekly at The Fox, Stourton on a Monday evening 7.30 for 8pm. We generally have a meal and a speaker. Members must pay a small annual fee and a weekly fee to cover food costs. We encourage members to aspire to club leadership or committee roles.
What are the attendance requirements?
We would love all members to attend every week but we understand that Rotarians often have busy jobs or run their own businesses; as a result we do not impose any attendance requirements. We just want you to come along and get involved as much as you can.
What is the minimum age to be in Rotary?
There is no minimum age to join Rotary. You may be invited to join at any age after you become established in a career and have the time and financial resources to meet all Rotary club membership requirements. If you’re interested in joining a Rotary club, ask members about the time and financial commitments necessary to fulfil membership requirements, and consider whether you can make those commitments.
Are college students eligible for membership?
No. Rotarians have achieved a level of career experience that enables them to bring a specialization to their club, and students haven’t yet reached a level in their professional and personal lives that allows them to fulfil all aspects of Rotary club membership. But undergraduate and graduate students, as well as young adults, may become members of Rotaract clubs.
