District 9705 Membership
The top two reasons people join Rotary are to give back to the community and to connect with like-minded leaders and friends. Our members stay with Rotary for the same reasons.
Rotary brings together leaders from all cultures and occupations who want to use their distinct expertise for good. People whose sense of responsibility inspires them to give back to their communities. Who step forward to tackle the toughest challenges and persevere to create lasting change in communities around the world
Membership development and retention is at the heart of sustainability for D9705 and all Clubs. Every member is responsible for membership development and retention, as well as the active Club Membership Committee.
The District Membership Committee is there to help your Club with practical ideas and support to ensure your club achieves its membership goal and is sustainable into the future.
