Steps to Joining Rotary

Individual Rotary clubs belong to Rotary International. Individual members, or Rotarians, belong to a club. The club is where most of Rotarians' meaningful service work is carried out. Clubs can be engaged not only in their communities, but also internationally. Rotary International is also present in most social networking sites. What Rotarians get out of Rotary depends largely on what they put into it.
 

If you would like more information about Rotary, feel free to visit a meeting.  We invite guests to join us for up to three meetings.

It should not be assumed that membership will be granted to all who wish to become Rotarians - there is a clear Proposal process that is followed by the club executive and it's members, for admitting newcomers who desire to become an active part of Rotary. 

At the Daybreak Club we believe that involvement is the best way of contributing.  Below are our guidelines to the priviledges and expecations of membership.

Fellowship
Developing bonds of friendship is an important part of Rotary membership.  To help you get to know your fellow club members we ask you to sit at the welcome desk for at least one meeting, and sit with the Club Secretary and Club President to see what these positions entail.

Privileges of Membership
Your privileges in Rotary are:
Friendship with leaders in your community, in neighboring cities, all over Canada, and around the world.
Giving service to your community.
Developing international goodwill and understanding.
Helping build higher ethical standards within your vocation.

Obligations of Membership
PARTICIPATION
Rotarians must be prepared to give time and talents to activities in the areas of community work, club social functions and Club and District activity.

ATTENDANCE
Rotary is a service club that gives its members the opportunity to serve their community on both the local and worldwide level.  One of the requirements of Rotary membership is 50 percent attendance at meetings.  Rotarians are also expected to miss no more than four meetings in a row.  Meetings can be made up at other clubs, online, and other designated Rotary functions.  When away on holidays or  if business affairs prevent your attendance for a period of time, we ask that you please notify the executive.

Duties of New Rotarians: New Rotarians are expected to attend, at least once, each of the following activities over a four-month period.
