WHO CAN BECOME ROTARIAN?
Any leader in ones line of work can become member of a Rotary Club, if one has the following: Time, Soul and Will:
- Time to dedicate to the society in which one leaves
- Liveliness and power of example necessary for club’s activities
- Will to change society for the better
As Rotary would like to represent the whole society, its members are classified according to their fields, hence name CLASSIFICATION. Ideal for every club is to have as many classifications as possible.
At the same time it is essential to connect in a real way with following ideals:
"Rotary simply must continue to pioneer or be left in the rear of progress."
(Founder of Rotary International, Paul Harris, 1945)
"Service Above Self"
"We did not come to be served, but to serve" (Not to be served, but to serve)
As every member of Rotary should know the Four Way Test of Rotary states:
- Of the things we think, say or do...
- Is it the Truth?
- Is it Fair to all concerned?
- Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
- Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?
"If you can offer a bit of your kindness, soul, time, without asking anything in return "a priori"; if you have something to say in your workplace or your society, join the great rotary family, comprised of over 1.2 million members organized in over 33,000 clubs in more than 200 countries."
If you think these requirements fit you, contact a Rotary club in your area for future guidance.
