Becoming a "Friend of Rotary (FOR)" may be an alternative to, or a potential "stepping stone" towards future Rotary membership. Friends of Rotary may suit people who are not presently in a position to become a Rotarian, and would give you a good insight about Rotary and our club. We have a growing list of people registered as Friends of Rotary.
As a "Friend of Rotary (FOR)" you  would engage with Rotary in a flexible manner, without the obligations of Rotary membership, as outlined below:
  • No joining or annual fees.
  • You would be welcome to receive Club Bulletins via email;
  • You would be welcome to attend weekly Club meetings, at the same cost as for members, but there is no obligation to do so.
  • You would be welcome to participate, as a volunteer, in club programs and fellowship functions. For example: Charity Golf Days, Sausage Sizzles, special club events such as club anniversaries, annual Christmas functions, at the relevant function price. If you see an event or project that we are planning and you would like to contribute in some way, you can simply contact us.
  • FOR may be renewed by the club, annually or biannually.
  • If a FOR wishes to become a member of Altona City Rotary Club, the normal membership procedures would apply.
