Rotary Club Membership

The Hagerstown Rotary Club Membership

Rotarians are business and professional leaders who take an active role in their communities while greatly enriching their personal and professional lives. A Rotary club contains a diverse group of professional leaders from the community that the club serves.

Membership in a Rotary club offers a number of benefits including:
  • effecting change within the community;
  • advancing business and professional contacts;
  • developing leadership skills;
  • gaining an understanding of and having an impact on international humanitarian issues.
Through Rotary's service programs, a Rotary club can have a significant effect on the quality of life in its community. Rotary Foundation programs offer opportunities to form international partnerships that help people in need worldwide. Some 1.2 million Rotarians in 30,000 clubs in more than 160 countries make significant contributions to the quality of life at home and around the globe.
