 Thinking about joining Rotary ?

 

Rotarians are business and professional leaders who take an active role in their communities while greatly enriching their personal and professional lives. A Rotary club contains a diverse group of professional leaders from the community that the club serves.

 http://www.rotary.org

BENEFITS OF ROTARY

Membership in a Rotary club brings with it many opportunities, such as:

  • Becoming connected to your community

  • Working with other like minded business leaders and professionals to address community needs

  • Participating in Rotary's international humanitarian service efforts

  • Establishing contact with an international network of professionals

  • Developing leadership skills and assuming leadership positions

 CLASSIFICATIONS

Membership invitations are also based on the classification principle, which helps ensure a cross-representation of the businesses and professions within the community. A classification describes either the principal business or professional service of the organization that the Rotarian works for, or the Rotarian's own activity within the organization. Examples of classifications include higher education administration, eye surgery, human resources, and pharmaceutical sales.

RESPONSIBILITIES OF ROTARY

Rotary club membership carries with it certain responsibilities:
  • Members are expected to attend weekly meetings of the club. (There are various opportunities for making up missed meetings) by attending functions and other Rotary activities.
  • Members are required to pay annual dues to their club, their district (an administrative unit of Rotary International), and to Rotary International. STRC has kept these dues low to encourage participation in other fund raising activities to fund all projects undertaken by the club.

Thank you for your interest in possible membership in a local Rotary club. Rotary is always pleased when individuals express interest in joining a Rotary club in their area and becoming involved in community and international service.

Please be reminded that membership is by invitation only and is at the discretion of each individual Rotary club.

Membership

Rotary International is one of the world's larger service organizations, with some 1.2 million members in 29,500 clubs in more than 200 countries.

Annually, Rotary clubs worldwide invite a limited number of men and women to become members. These prospective members represent various businesses and professional activities in their communities.

A person being considered for membership is invited by a current member to attend one or more club meetings. If the prospective member is a good fit for the club, and the club is a good match for the prospective member's interests, a sponsor may submit the candidate to the club's membership committee. With approval from the committee and the other club members, the candidate may be inducted into the club.

To be invited, you must be

  • Willing and Able to solicit funds and/or give personally to Club fund-raising initiatives.

  • Be a leading representative of a business or professional activity.

  • Willing to help and participate in projects that enhance your community.

  • Willing to work on projects that help people in developing countries and promote international understanding and goodwill.

Rotary clubs provide

  • Friendships with other managerial and professional leaders in your community.

  • Prestige of membership in a worldwide organization.

  • Ongoing practical education.

  • A network of people who can help you become more successful.

  • Promotion of higher ethical standards in your business or profession.

  • Projects to enhance your community.

  • Help for communities in countries around the world.

Why not consider joining a Rotary club in your community and make a difference in your community and the Global community.

The funds raised during the rotary year are used to finance local community projects and in conjunction with the Rotary international and District organizations, funding is provided to sponsor international projects.

The Scarborough Twilight club is targeting our native peoples as one of our key benefactors and it is our intention to provide support for the children in our native schools and their families, working with the first nations leaders and their support 

We also sponsor international programs to help people in Africa, The Caribbean and Latin America. These projects are done in conjunction with local Rotary clubs as joint international projects.
