The membership of each club is drawn from the community in the area where it is situated. Clubs typically attempt to draw their membership from a wide range of trades and professions represented in the community, thus enabling the club to be more effective within its local area. Many Clubs also have retired members.
The obligations of membership start with attendance at the weekly meetings, and ideally members are expected to attend 50% of the meetings in a year. However it is recognised that circumstances may prevent a member fulfilling this requirement at all times.
Rotary Club members are part of a diverse group of professional leaders working to address various community and international service needs. Through community service and other means, Rotary Club members help promote peace and understanding throughout the world. Our members are our most important asset. They are the force that allows Rotary to carry out its many humanitarian efforts and achieve its mission.
