REASONS TO JOIN ROTARY
10 Reasons to Join Rotary
1.Friendship / Fellowship / Community:
In an increasingly complex world, Rotary provides one of the most basic human needs: the need for friendship and fellowship. It is one of two reasons why Rotary began in 1905.
2.Business and Professional Development:
The second original reason for Rotary's beginning was professional and business development. Rotary consists of a cross section of every business and professional community. Its members come from all walks of life. Rotarians help each other and collectively help others.
3.Personal Growth and Development:
Membership in Rotary continues one's growth and education in human relations and personal development.
4.Citizenship in the Community:
Membership in a Rotary club helps develop better community citizens. The average Rotary club consists of the most active citizens of any community.
At each Rotary meeting, there is a programme designed to keep members informed about what is going on in the community, nation and world. Each meeting provides an opportunity to listen to different speakers on a variety of timely topics.
6.Citizenship in the World:
Every Rotarian wears a pin that says "Rotary International." There are few places on the globe that do not have a Rotary club. Every Rotarian is welcome - even encouraged - to attend any of the 30,000 clubs in 194 nations and geographical regions. This encourages new friendships in both local and world communities.
7.Assistance When Traveling:
Traveling Rotarians can secure medical and professional assistance as well as services and advice from fellow Rotarians throughout the world.
Every Rotary club and district has parties and activities that contribute to a diverse, yet professional business life. Rotary holds conferences, conventions, assemblies, and institutes that provide entertainment in addition to Rotary information, education, and service.
Around the world, practically every religion, country, culture, race, creed, political persuasion, language, colour and ethnic identity is represented among members of Rotary. Rotary is a cross-section of the world's most prominent citizens who are aware of their cultures and have developed a love of working with people everywhere. They become better citizens of their countries in the process.
Rotary members hail from diverse backgrounds: the professionals, art, government, sports, military, religion, and all disciplines. Rotary is the oldest and most prestigious service club in the world. Its ranks include executives, managers, and professionals - people who make decisions and influence policy.
