Rotary leadership
 
Rotary is a leadership organization and provides lots of options for you to develop as a leader and professional.  There are conferences and developmental workshops held throughout the year, as well as speakers and networking.

Rotary provides you with a chance to give back to both local and international communities.  We create and work at volunteering and fundraising events, and rely on our members to bring forward those that they are passionate about.  Rotarians make a difference.
 
How to join Rotary
 
If being part of Rotary sounds like it fits with your values, desire to grow and give back, it is easy to get started.
 
The first step is to attend 2 or 3 club meetings or events.  This will give you an opportunity to meet us and learn more about our interaction in the community.  We are a dinner club so there will be a cost for the meal.  You can look at the meeting schedule on the home page under "speakers".  Please check as we are sometimes at a different location.
 
Feel free to contact us with any questions.
