Rotary members share ideas, make plans, hear from the community, and catch up with friends during club programs that fuel the impact we make.
Your club connection gives you the chance to develop skills like public speaking, project management, and event planning. You’ll meet interesting people from your community and around the world. And you’ll tackle local and international issues that are important to you and your fellow club members.
Some clubs conduct all or part of their meetings online, for members who have a busy schedule, limited mobility, or live in an area without an established Rotary club. Online clubs, sometimes known as e-clubs, meet regularly, carry out service projects, support The Rotary Foundation, and socialize, like any other Rotary club, without the cost that often comes with meeting in person.
We provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.
Twin clubs, or sister clubs, are two clubs from different countries that form a long-term relationship to promote international understanding and goodwill and carry out service projects in their communities. When looking for a partner, consider clubs that:
• Share similar interests, challenges, or history
• You’ve worked with in the past
• Are located in a place that matches your club’s service interests
• Speak a common language
Explore new cultures and discover diverse perspectives by participating in a Friendship Exchange, a self-funded international exchange opportunity for Rotary members and their families. Taking part in an exchange is a wonderful way to make new friends and establish international service partnerships.
Connect with Rotary members, family members, and Rotaract members who are experts in a particular field by joining a Rotary Action Group. Group members share their expertise by collaborating with clubs and districts on service projects.
An intercountry committee offers you the chance to work with Rotary clubs or districts in two or more countries. You might work with a committee to carry out international service projects, to sponsor a new Rotary club, or to develop a twin club relationship.
