Rotarians are volunteers from your home community building a network of friends who share skills and passions to make a difference at home and around the world.   Rotarians think globally and act locally.

Are you interested in joining this global network of 1.2 million business and professional leaders from over 200 countries and places, all volunteering their time and talents to serve their communities and the
world?


Reasons why you should join a Rotary Club


Rotary is a community of friends who are committed to creating positive change in the world.

You'll make valuable connections with community leaders who care about the issues facing your community and your world. And you'll have the chance to apply your personal experience and professional skills to solve these challenges and create positive change.

As a member, you'll find opportunities to network and develop your professional skills. You can take the lead in developing projects, organizing events, and running your club. Through these activities, you'll hone your project planning skills, improve your public speaking, and even learn new skills, like public relations, social media, and fundraising.
 
You'll spend time with friends and make new ones every week! Make it a family affair. Members are encouraged to invite their spouse or partner, children, and parents to help with service projects and attend club events.
 
Rotary offers opportunities for all ages - from young leaders in their 20's and 30's to senior members of the business and local community. 


How do you become a member of Rotary?
 

Individuals must be sponsored or proposed for membership into a club. So the first step to make that happen, is to contact us.


CLICK HERE to find a Rotary club in District 5050 or email District Membership Chair Linda Murray (linda@evergreensecurity.com) and/or District Webmaster Sean Hogan (shogan@buckleyhogan.com).

Rotary District 5050 has clubs from Everett, WA to Hope, BC. If you come from elsewhere you can

We invite you to be our guest and visit at least three of our club meetings. 

You complete a membership application form and a club member submits your name to the club's membership committee.


What are the qualifications for membership?

 

Be a business or community leader, or have the desire to be one.  Rotarians are community volunteers so we put value on your desire to serve others and to build a network among business and community leaders. 

When we speak of leaders, we include potential leaders - anyone who wants to make a difference.  We are looking for people who:

  • Have an interest in networking, making friends, serving your local community or helping others internationally.
     
  • Be able to attend the club meetings and/or to participate in community projects.  Rotary clubs have a meeting every week, and we ask that members attend at least two of those meetings or participate in two club activities each month.  
     
  • Live or work within the vicinity of the club or surrounding area.  We want you to become connected to your community.



What are the responsibilities of membership?

 

Attend club meetings or participate in some other way (such as taking part in a service project, visiting another Rotary club or attending a committee meeting).

Pay annual dues to your club, the Rotary District, and Rotary International.   Dues are often around $200 to $250 per year, depending on what the club sets for its own dues (but the average works out to about $20 per month).

Participate in local or international Rotary club activities or projects.  We are active volunteers who want to serve our community and world.

Take part in leadership courses and activities that are offered through Rotary.  We encourage members to be leaders in their clubs as well as in their community.  Many of these are offered at no cost to members, or at minimal cost.
