Becoming a member
If you are interested in joining our club, the first step is to send an email to the member responsible for recruitment. That is Tony Hearn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It helps if you tell us a little about yourself and if you are on LinkedIn, then please provide the reference. The club has several qualities to recommend it:
- International – we have more than 15 different nationalities among our members;
- We strive to maintain equal numbers of men and women in the club;
- We have a lower age limit of 18. We have several members under 30 and the average age is about 40;
- Our fortnightly meetings are informal and friendly.
- Our programmes are varied, interesting and enjoyable.
A good impression of our club can be gained from our Facebook page where you find both photos and short descriptions of our meetings.
Our recruitment policy is defined by maintaining these qualities in the club. Many Rotary clubs have a membership committee to interview a potential member. We think that the best way for you to get to know the club and for us to get to know you is to arrange for you to come to a meeting. By attending a meeting you are making no commitment to join. Prior to attending a meeting we shall send you a short questionnaire in order to provide us the basic information about yourself. If you wish to join the club, then we expect you to come to at least two meetings and not more than three meetings before you decide.
The Board of the club has the final decision on accepting a new member.
Members are expected to attend meetings regularly, which means at least half of the meetings. The members pay a half yearly contribution which pays for all the expenses of the club including the dinners, the meetings and payments to The Rotary organisation. A member does not pay extra when attending a meeting.
Members are expected to take an active part in all the club’s activities and to give a talk to the club in our series of “Sharing a cross cultural experience”.
We hope that we have captured your interest and are looking forward to meeting you!
