Rotary members are professional men and women who work as volunteers to improve the quality of life in their home and world community. Club membership represents a cross-section of local business and professional leaders. The world’s Rotary clubs meet weekly and are non-political,non-religious and open to all cultures, races and creeds.

There are approximately 1.2 million Rotary club working in some 30,000 Rotary clubs in 162 countries.

First admitted in 1987, women are the fastest-growing segment of Rotary’s membership. There are about 2,000 women club presidents, and women are rapidly assuming regional leadership roles.
How to Become a Member
The by-laws of Rotary clearly outlined the procedure for a prospective member to be proposed for Rotary club membership. The “Proposer” is the key person in the growth and advancement of Rotary. Without a sponsor, an individual will never have the opportunity to become a Rotarian.

The task of the proposer should not end merely by submitting a name to the club secretary or membership committee. Rotary has not established formal responsabilities for proposers or sponsors; however, by custom and tradition these procedures are recommended in many clubs.
The Sponsor Should:
1.Invite a prospective member to several meetings prior to proposing the individual for membership.
2.Accompany the prospective new member to one or more orientation / informational meetings.
3.Introduce the new member to other club members each week for the first month.
4.Invite the new member to to accompany the sponser to neighbouring clubs for the first make-up meeting to learn the process and observe the spirit of fellowship.
5.Ask the new member and spouse to accompany the sponsor to the club’s social activities, dinners or other special occasions.
6.Urge the new member and spouse to attend the district conference with the sponsor.
7.Serve as a special friend to assure that the new member becomes an active Rotarian.
