Engaging with Rotary to enhance your membership experience
We’re celebrating our members and their clubs — and all the good they do around the world — during Membership and New Club Development Month in August.

One way you can celebrate your membership is by getting involved in the many activities and programs available to you as a member of the Rotary family. Everyone’s reason for joining Rotary is different, but members stay because of the value it adds to their lives. Through the friends we make and the lives we change, Rotary offers us opportunities to engage with a global community and make a positive difference.

Here are some ways you can engage with Rotary to enhance your membership experience.
Make new friends
Take your projects to the next level
  • Collaborate with experts from a Rotarian Action Group to help ensure your service projects have a lasting impact.
  • Sponsor a Rotary Community Corps(RCC) to get members of your community involved in making a difference. RCC members plan and carry out projects in their communities and support local Rotary club projects, but they are not members of a Rotary club.
  • Work with your district community, international, and vocational service chairs to boost your service efforts.
Use technology to achieve greater impact
Rotary’s Discussion Groups, Rotary Ideas, and Rotary Showcase can contribute to the success of any service project, from start to finish. Join or start a conversation in a discussion group on My Rotary. Find support for a project on Rotary Ideas. And share your project successes on Rotary Showcase to inspire others and promote Rotary’s work to improve communities around the world.
Collaborating with partners on sustainable service projects
Working with partners can strengthen club and district service projects by ensuring sustainability, providing access to expertise, and fostering local networks. Rotary’s service partners join us on specific projects that support our causes. Consider partnering with one of the following organizations on your next project:
