Why join rotary?
Each Rotary club strives for a membership that is an up-to-date and progressive representation of its community’s business, vocational, and professional interests. Membership in Rotary offers a number of benefits, including:
* Effecting change within the community
* Developing leadership skills
* Gaining an understanding of — and having an impact on — international humanitarian issues.
* Developing relationships with community and business leaders
Rotary membership is by invitation of local clubs. If you would like to be considered for membership by our Rotary club, or are simply interested in finding out more about Rotary or our own Club, please contact us. We would be very happy to have you along as a guest at one of our meetings.

The Object of Rotary
All Rotary members are to familiarise themselves with The Object of Rotary.
The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
- FIRST. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
- SECOND. High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
- THIRD. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life;
- FOURTH. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
The Four Way Test
In addition, as a member of Rotary, you are expected to apply the The Four-Way Test of things we say and do
- Is it the Truth?
- Is it fair to all concerned?
- Will it bring goodwill and better friendship?
- Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
