Are you interested building better communities and changing lives?
Does fellowship and networking sound attractive?
If so, Rotary may be right for you. You may be new to Rotary, a returning Rotarian, or a current member of another Rotary club who has relocated to the local area.
Whatever the reason, we’d like to hear from you. The first step is to contact our Club Membership Chair to discuss the opportunity Rotary offers. You will be invited to visit our regular Wednesday breakfast club meeting.
We promise members:
- The opportunity to give back to the communities we serve
- Fun and fellowship
Rotarians are expected to:
- Attend a minimum percentage of “meetings.” For this purpose, working on any of our service projects or our annual duck race qualifies as a “meeting” as do our Wednesday breakfast meetings.
- Participate in our annual fundraising even, the Rotary Charity Duck Race – getting ducks adopted and working on race day.
- Serve in one of our areas of service – local service projects, international service projects, or service to the Club in its administration.
- Pay dues timely, which include a $100 annual contribution to the Rotary Foundation.
The membership process for new members is as follows:
- Attend a minimum of two breakfast meetings so you can get a better feel if Rotary is right for you and club members can meet you.
- Be sponsored by a Rotarian who will, with you, fill out a membership application. In this process, you will agree to the actions in the next two steps.
- Be approved by the club board after a presentation by your sponsor. Following this, Rotary will run your name through the SC Sex Offender Database (a Rotary International policy as we work often with children).
- Have your name circulated to the membership for comment to the board (which may, in rare cases, amend its invitation for membership).
- Meet with a club officer (typically the Membership Chair or President) for a final opportunity for you to ask any questions and for you to reaffirm (or withdraw) your interest in membership. Following this, you will be inducted at the next weekly meeting you attend.
People who are active members in good standing of another Rotary Club may transfer their membership to the Rotary Club of Daniel Island without going through all of the steps described above. They should contact our Membership Chair.
