Rotary is an international membership organization made up of people who share a passion for and commitment to enhancing communities and improving lives across the globe. The Jacksonville Rotary Club is an active outpost of this larger organization.
Rotary members join clubs by invitation. With 35,000 clubs around the world, and others that meet online, Rotary makes it easy to get involved and start making a difference today.
Why should I join a Rotary club?
With clubs in almost every country, our more than 1.2 million members embrace their diverse background and unite to exchange new ideas, apply expertise, and implement improvements that transform communities.
Our members work locally and partner on international projects that address today’s most pressing humanitarian challenges.
The impact our members make takes shape at Rotary club meetings and activities. These gatherings give you the chance to:
– Change lives. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss and act upon your community’s greatest needs.
– Connect with other passionate people. Rotary club meetings are a place to strengthen connections to friends and neighbors and form meaningful relationships that last a lifetime.
– Invest in yourself. Many clubs offer workshops, conferences, guest speakers, and more – all aimed at helping you grow personally and professionally.
LOCAL MEMBERSHIP PROCESS
Membership is by invitation. Talk to a local club member, or inquire to the club membership chairman for information on joining. You may be invited to a club meeting, social event, or even to volunteer on a service project.
Invited to join
If you and your prospective club are a good fit, you will be invited to join. You will have a few private meetings to meet members, be given club history and expectations, and offered a membership packet. After you accept, your club will hold an induction ceremony during one of the Friday meetings to welcome you and commemorate this important event.
