Policies & Practices

Not for Profit Organizations – These organizations are welcome to speak to the Club; however, the organization is not allowed to pursue the Club during a program for a monetary contribution unless the organization has requested and been approved by the Foundation as a recipient of Club funding.

Elected Officials – Elected officials are always welcome to be a guest speaker; however, if the elected official is a candidate running for reelection, the club asks that the candidate not speak during the election year. Even if the elected official is running unopposed, please observe this guideline.

Product and Service Promotion – Business owners and company executives who are invited to speak to discuss their business are asked not to use the Rotary podium to promote their products and services.
