Welcome to the world of Rotary International. While you may initially think of Rotary as a local group of interesting people who meet weekly and hear a speaker, Rotary International is much more. It began as and continues to be an exceptional service and social networking institution in your community.
As a member of your Rotary Club you are a part of Rotary International and as such you are welcomed at any meeting of a Rotary Club around the world. Even though its headquarters is in Evanston, Ill. only one-third of the world’s Rotarians live in the US.
Hopefully, you will quickly learn the scope, terminology and operating methods of Rotary International (RI) and its related non-profit funding organization called the Rotary Foundation (TRF).
Rotary International has a number of specific programs that connect Rotarians far beyond the city limits of your town.
RI operates under one President, one Board of Directors and one set of policies and procedures around the world. You truly are a member of a world-wide organization.
