A founding principle of Rotary was to meet periodically to enjoy camaraderie
and enlarge one’s circle of business and professional acquaintances. As
the oldest service club in the world, Rotary club members represent a
cross-section of the community’s owners, executives, managers, political
leaders, and professionals – people who make decisions and influence
Club members have many opportunities for humanitarian service, both locally and
internationally. Service programs address such concerns as health care, hunger,
poverty, illiteracy, and the environment. Rotarians experience the fulfillment
that comes from giving back to the community.
With more than 31,000 Rotary clubs in over 160 countries, Rotarians gain an
understanding of humanitarian issues through international service projects and
exchange programs. One of Rotary’s highest objectives is to build goodwill and
peace throughout the world.
Rotary was founded on fellowship, an ideal that remains a major attraction of
membership today. Club members enjoy the camaraderie with like-minded
professionals, and club projects offer additional opportunities to develop
enduring friendships. Rotary club members who travel have friendly contacts in
almost every city in the world.
Weekly Rotary club programs keep members informed about what is taking place in
the community, nation, and world and motivated to make a difference.
Rotary sponsors some of the world’s largest youth exchange, educational
exchange, and scholarship programs. Rotary clubs provide innovative training
opportunities and mentoring for young leaders and involve family members in a
wide range of social and service activities.
