PLEASE NOTE: Rotary International in Great Britain & Ireland (RIBI) is an Association of private clubs, members of which abide by the Constitution and By-laws of the Association, and by the Constitution of their own club.
Club members, as stated in the RIBI Club Constitution, should be "adult persons of good character and good business, professional and/or community reputation" and agree to uphold high moral and ethical standards in their "personal, business and community life" as well as in their interaction with other people generally.
Please note that "membership of a club is by invitation only, at the discretion of the members." It is important, therefore, that you take time to visit your prospective club on a few occasions to ensure not only that you get to know its members and that you will feel happy being part of the club, but also that you give its members a chance to get to know you.
Our Club has introduced a category of membership called Associate Membership, to more easily allow a potential Rotarian to get acquainted with Rotary, our Club, our members, programmes and projects for a period of up to 12 months, without committing to full membership.
Associate Members are encouraged to attend our weekly lunch meetings, and to participate in all activities of the Club including committees (but do not have voting rights)
Associate members do not pay the annual membership fee but are requested to make a modest donation to Rotary’s charity (Rotary Foundation) as all our members do each year.
It's a great way to get to know us more fully, especially if you are very new to the concept of Rotary!
At the end of the 12-month period (or earlier) we hope Associate Members will then decide to apply for full membership of the Club.
For more details of Associate Membership, please contact our Membership Chairman Kevin Grogan.
