If you are interested in joining the Rotary club of Melton Mowbray why not come along to one of our meetings on a Monday lunch time?  We really would like to meet you. Please e-mail the club and we will get in touch with you to arrange a visit and discuss any questions you may have.

Some more general information about Rotary and membership is below.

What's it all about?
Rotary is short for Rotary International - a worldwide association of local clubs for men and women in business or the professions who
Rotary was founded in 1905 and now has 1.18 million members in more than 28,000 clubs in 155 countries and 35 geographical regions.  There are 1,834 clubs in Great Britain and Ireland with over 59,000 members.

Each club operates independently within a common constitution.  Membership is drawn from the business and professional community.  To ensure the club represents the community there are limitations on membership from each profession or type of business.  But Clubs are always pleased to hear from those interested in joining them.

Clubs meet weekly for breakfast, lunch or dinner - Melton Mowbray Rotary Club usually meets on a Monday lunch-time; see the club calendar for further details).  Business often includes a talk on a subject of general interest by an outside speaker.

Every Rotarian has the right to attend the meeting of any other club and Rotarians may invite non-Rotarian guests to their own club meetings.

Weekly meetings promote acquaintance and fellowship.  Through this fellowship Rotarians find the inspiration to serve the community.

Service to the community requires Rotarians to devote their time, energy and professional skills to particular projects.  Although funds are often raised for charity this is not a Rotary club's first aim.  The emphasis is on service by each individual Rotarian.

Attracting new members is vital to a Rotary club's long term success, and so clubs put a great deal of emphasis on expanding their membership with enthusiastic and service-minded individuals.

Prospective members must actively hold, or be retired from, a professional, proprietary, executive or managerial position.  And they must have the desire and ability to serve and to meet the club's attendance requirements for its weekly meetings.

An important distinction between Rotary and other organisations is that membership in Rotary is by invitation.  However this should not stop anyone who feels that they might like to become a Rotarian from indicating an interest, either by speaking to a Rotarian, or by getting in touch with our club, with no obligation on either side.
