The Importance of Membership

To be effective, a Rotary club needs members. Your club’s ability to serve the community, support The Rotary Foundation, and develop leaders capable of serving Rotary beyond the club level is directly related to the size and strength of its membership base.

Developing your club’s membership requires identifying and attracting potential members as well as retaining current members. New members bring fresh ideas and new energy to a club. Current members are crucial to continuing your club’s good works.




Club executives, and particularly the Club Membership Chair, should visit the Membership section in the Learning & Reference area of Rotary International's website, where you will find a variety of helpful tools and resources, including a club brochure template, strategies for attracting and keeping members, tips for using social media to attract members, a guide for new member orientation, and much more.
