Join a Club

Rotary is 1.4 million passionate individuals in 46,000+ clubs worldwide. We are both an international organization and a local community leader. Membership in a Rotary or Rotaract club is by invitation only.

Tell us why you’re interested in Rotary, and we’ll help you get started.

How our membership works

We can connect you with a club that's right for you and make it easy to get involved and on your way to membership immediately.

  1. You express interest

    Let us know a little about yourself and what you’re looking for in a club. We’ll find the local clubs in your area and let them know you’re interested.

  2. Rotary matches you with a club

    Based on your preferences and interests, Rotary leaders in your community will match you with the local club that fits you best.

  3. A local club contacts you

    A Rotary or Rotaract club member will contact you by email or phone to discuss your interest in Rotary. You’ll be invited to get to know the club better by attending a club meeting, a social event, or even to join in on a service project as a volunteer.

  4. The club invites you to join

    Now that you and a local club have spent some time together and determined that you’re a good fit for each other, you will be invited to join. Each club has its own ways of welcoming new members; they may hold a ceremony for you.

  5. You’re a member!

    Enjoy getting involved in your new club as a Rotary member. Join a committee. Lead a service project. Organize a social event. Lead and contribute to your new club.
