3. Meet One on One with a Club Member:

We call these Fireside Chats.  It is very likely that you will have some questions that need to be answered regarding time and financial commitments, and what you can expect to get from your membership in Rotary.  Taking time with a member will help you better understand what you can expect, and how you can contribute as a member.

5. Grow:

Joining a Rotary club has many benefits, as you have read on this site. But something happens to people after they join, and you will often hear senior Rotarians explain that the reasons they stayed in Rotary so long is very different than the reasons they first joined. Serve well in Rotary, and you may find that you become a kinder, better, more impactful person.  Engage in meaningful projects, do good, and have fun!


But What if it's not for you?

You may terminate your membership at any time.
