Both Rotary International and District 5950 dues will increase on the 2017-18 semi-annual bills. The district approved its $5 ($2.50 semi-annual) increase at the Corporation’s Annual Meeting on April 28, 2017. Beginning July 1, 2017, a member’s dues are $29.00.
Semi-annual training assessment fees also increased, with a sliding scale for clubs of
44 or fewer members, 45-74 members, and 75+ members. This increase supports a
balanced budget for FY2017-18, without using district reserves.
Rotary International’s 2016-17 Council on Legislation authorized a $4 dues increase implemented over three years: 2017-18 = $30.00, 2018-19 = $32.00, 2019-20 = $34.00. 
The additional funding will enable Rotary to address many issues, including:
  • Improve the functionality and search capabilities of RI’s website.
  • Improve and simplify reporting for clubs and districts.
  • Invest in membership initiatives.
  • Bring Rotaractors into the fold by allowing them access to online tools.
  • Improve the performance and usability for Rotary Club Central.
  • Improve access to contribution data for timelier reporting to clubs and individuals.
