Why Join?
  1. FRIENDSHIP – In an increasingly complex world, Rotary provides one of the most basic human needs; the need for friends and fellowship. It is one of the two reasons why Rotary began in 1905.
  2. THE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE – Rotary is a service club; its business is mankind. Rotarians believe in service above self and provide numerous opportunities for members to serve their community and return what has been given to them. With more than 34,000 clubs worldwide, Rotarians can serve both local and international communities to achieve a sense of self-fulfillment.
  3. LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT – Rotary, the oldest and most prestigious service club in the world, attracts people who make decisions and influence policy. Rotary members are leaders of business, the professions, art, government, sports, military, religion and all disciplines. Serving in Rotary expands leadership skills in motivating, influencing and inspiring leaders – a leadership development opportunity unavailable in an academic classroom.
  4. BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS – Rotary is a cross section of Sacramento’s business and professional community. Its members come from all walks of life. Through association and involvement Rotarians help one another as well as collectively help others in their community.
  5. PERSONAL GROWTH – Membership and active involvement in Rotary continues one’s growth and education in human relations and personal development. Whether the goal is to expand social skills, develop public speaking or obtain experience in a host of other skills, participation prepares members for future personal, as well as professional success.
  6. CONNECTION TO COMMUNITY – Attending weekly meetings keeps busy leaders abreast of local, national and international trends that impact their lives or occupations. Participating in conferences, conventions, assemblies, institutes and weekly meetings keeps leaders connected to their community and fellow members.
  7. ETHICS DEVELOPMENT – Rotarians are expected to be ethical in business and personal relationships and practice a 4-Way Test to govern one’s ethical standards. (See last page.)
  8. FUN – Rotary is fun. Each meeting is fun. Club projects are fun. Social activities are fun. Providing service with friends is fun. The fun begins with involvement – being there with others.
  9. CITIZENSHIP IN THE WORLD – Every Rotarian is welcome at any one of the 34,000 clubs around the globe (there are few places that do not have a Rotary Club; they are even on cruise ships.) Instant friends can be found among the 1.2 million worldwide members.
