A New Member Induction fee of $285 is due within your first 30 days of membership.  From this fee, $100 is deposited into a Rotary International Annual Sustaining Account in your name.  (When $1000 contributed ($25 each quarterly billing) to this account, a Paul Harris Fellow is awarded.)  $25 is contributed to our Rotary Club of Des Moines Foundation benefiting scholarship and literacy programs.



Committee meetings provide an opportunity to meet other like minded Rotarians as well as a make-up for attendance.  You are welcome to attend any committee meeting as all meetings are open to the membership at large.  RSVP is not necessary, there is a sign-up sheet in the meeting room.  Regular participation in one committee is recommended for you to maximize your involvement with the Rotary Club of Des Moines.  The schedule of committee meetings can be found in the E-bulletin (sent out every Friday).



The quarterly billing for your regular dues is broken into three categories.  Dues to the Rotary Club of Des Moines are $325.  Additionally, $25 is for the Rotary Club of Des Moines Foundation.  As mentioned above, in order to attain a Paul Harris Fellow ($1,000 total contributions), $25 is also noted on your monthly billing to RI (Rotary International).  Your total dues payable as a member are $375 per quarter.



There is ample parking at the Wakonda Club.  Valet parking is available for a recommended tip of $3.  Occasionally the Wakonda Club cannot accommodate our Thursday lunches.  For those meetings, our club meets "off site."  You will see these exceptions noted on the schedule in advance.  If we are at a location that is not familiar to you, please contact the office and ask about the parking options.
