How Can I Join Rotary?
Impact starts with our members — people like you who want to be part of making the world a better place. At club meetings in communities across the globe, our members come together to strengthen their connections to friends and neighbors and their commitment to improving lives.
Who can join?
We’re looking for people who want to give back to their communities.
Rotary clubs also welcome Rotaractors, Rotary Peace Fellows, and other members of the family of Rotary who qualify for membership.
How can I become a member?
Clubs accept new members by invitation. To help us find the right club for you, we’ll ask you a few questions about yourself and your interests. Then we’ll share your answers with Rotary leaders in your community who will match you with a club.
What are the benefits?
Becoming a Rotary member connects you with a diverse group of professionals who share your drive to give back. Through regular meetings and events, you’ll:
  • Discuss your community’s needs and develop creative ways to meet them
  • Connect with other leaders who are changing the world
  • Expand your leadership and professional skills
  • Catch up with good friends and meet new ones
Other benefits of membership include:
Rotary Global Rewards, our member benefits program, which offers discounts on products and services. It’s Rotary’s way of helping our members spend less so they can do more.
The Rotary International Convention is our biggest event of the year. Rotary members from more than 130 countries meet at the convention each year to celebrate our successes and make plans for the future.
Rotary Fellowships give members the chance to join a group of people who share similar interests, hobbies, or vocations. Some groups use their fellowship to make a positive difference.
Rotarian Action Groups unite Rotary members, family members, program participants and alumni who share their expertise in particular fields by collaborating with clubs and districts on projects.
What’s expected of me?
As a club member, you will be asked to:
  • Pay club dues
  • Attend meetings and events
  • Use your professional skills and talents to make a difference

What is Human Trafficking?

Human Trafficking occurs when a human being is sold, traded, transferred, or otherwise exchanged in some way for money, sex, labor, or other commodities.

Sex Trafficking is when a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age.

Labor Trafficking is the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.

Michigan is a BIG human trafficking state due to its location next to Canada and waters of the Great Lakes.  Monroe county is a crossroads for major highways, waterways and agriculture products.  Monroe Rotary will be distributing soap in the county hotels and motels that have the NATIONAL HUMAN TRAFFICKING HOTLINE number printed on them.  Everyone needs to keep their eyes and ears open and report suspicious activities that go on all around us.  We can all make a difference by using the HOTLINE and saving a life.

March on the Rotary calendar is Water and Sanitation month.  Rotary’s target challenge to develop sustainable water, sanitation, hygiene, and education projects is being piloted in five countries: Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, India, and Kenya. The Rotary Foundation is changing the world by providing grants for projects and activities around the globe and in our own backyard (the Lake Erie western basin).
Some interesting statistics from the Rotary Foundation:
            $24 per year is all it takes to provide one person with safe water,
            23 million people now have safe water due to Rotary’s efforts,
            21 million people have access to sanitation and hygiene thanks to Rotary projects,
            2030 is the year that Rotary hopes to finish providing everyone with safe water, sanitation, and hygiene.
We don’t just build wells and walk away. Rotary members integrate water, sanitation, and hygiene into education projects. When children learn about disease transmission and practice good hygiene, they miss less school. And they can take those lessons home to their families, magnifying our impact.
Its been just over 40 years ago, the Rotary Club of Duarte, Calif., admitted three women members, in violation of the Rotary International constitution.  As a result, the club's charter was terminated by Rotary International.
Undeterred, the club's members continued to meet.  They put a X over their Rotary insignia, made themselves new pins, and dubbed themselves the Ex-Rotary Club of Duarte as they continued to fight for the right of women to serve as Rotarians.  Ten years later, a restored Rotary Club of Duarte sent Sylvia Whitlock, Rotary's first female club president, to a president's elect training seminar.  Not long after that, in 1989, Rotary's Council on Legislation permanently ended Rotary's status as a mens-only organization.
When I joined Rotary in Trenton, Michigan in 1992, there were no women in our club.  Within the next two years, a woman was nominated for membership.  Upon her nomination, over 1/3 of the club threatened to withdraw from the club.  The club's board of directors met and unanimously decided to admit the woman regardless of the threats from the membership. The woman was inducted and the club lost only  5-6 members over the next two months.  From that day forward, the club has never looked back.  It became stronger and became a better reflection of the community which it represented.  Today, there are more than 240,000 women in more than 35,000 clubs internationally.  
It is unimaginable now to not have women in Rotary clubs.  They are as passionate and dedicated as any member of the club.  They bring additional friendships and connections that wouldn't be possible in an all male organization.   So, let's take our hats off to all the lady Rotarians who serve Rotary and our communities.  It is my honor to be in Rotary with them.
