Why should you join Rotary? 17 Benefits

  • Friendship: In an increasingly complex world, Rotary provides one of the most basic human needs – the need for friends and fellowship.
  • Business development: Rotary consists of a cross-section of every business community.
  • Personal growth and development: Membership in Rotary continues one’s growth in human relations and personal development.
  • Leadership development: Rotary is an organization of leaders and successful people. Serving in Rotary positions is like a college education in leadership.
  • Citizenship in the community: The average Rotary club consists of the most active citizens of any community.
  • Continuing education: Each week at Rotary there is a program designed to keep people informed as to what is going on in the world.
  • Fun: Rotary provides fellowship, social activities and fun in service.
  • Public speaking skills: Rotary develops confidence and skill in public communication.
  • World citizenship: There are few places without a Rotary club, which means friends around the world. Assistance when travelling: Rotarians who travel can quickly find a doctor, lawyer, hotel, dentist, etc., through Rotary’s network.
  • Entertainment: Rotary offers conferences, conventions, assemblies and institutes that provide entertainment in addition to Rotary information, education and service. Development of social skills: Every week, members have an opportunity to develop their people skills through Rotary activities.
  • Family programs: Rotary provides one of the world’s largest Youth Exchange programs, opportunities for spouses and activities to assist family members in the development of values.
  • Vocational skills: Every Rotarian is expected to contribute to the development of his or her vocation.
  • Development of ethics: Rotarians practise The 4-Way Test, which governs one’s ethical standards. Rotarians are expected to be ethical in business and personal relationships.
  • Cultural awareness: Virtually every country, culture, religion, race, creed, political persuasion, language, colour and ethnic identity is found in Rotary. Prestige: Rotary is the oldest and most prestigious service club in the world. Its ranks include people who influence policy.
  • Nice People: Rotarians, above all, are nice people. They are important people who believe in the adage that while it is nice to be important, it is more important to be nice.
  • Absence of Official Creed: Rotary has no secret rituals. It is an open society of people who believe in helping others.
  • Opportunity to Serve: Rotary’s business is mankind and its product is service. This is perhaps the best reason for becoming a Rotarian – the chance to do something for somebody else while experiencing self-fulfillment in the process.
