Why join Rotary?

Because you:
  • see a need in your community and wonder how you can help
  • want to use your professional skills to help others
  • seek connections with other service-minded professionals
RC Canberra Sunrise is looking for men and women of all ages and backgrounds to join our Club.  We provide you with the ideal opportunity to use your time, talents, professional skills and energy towards improving the lives of people in your local community and around the world.

By belonging to Rotary, you can enjoy the benefits of:
  • business networking
  • personal development
  • meeting new friends
  • hearing inspiring speakers
  • having a great deal of fun, and
  • experiencing that special sense of fulfillment that comes from achieving something really worthwhile.
The best way to find out more about Rotary is to attend one of our meetings – you will be warmly welcomed. We meet every week (except for a break over Christmas and New Year and occasional special events - see the website for details) at The Deck Restaurant at Regatta Point, Barrine Drive, Parkes ACT 2600 at 0715 for 0730. Note that from 7 November 2019 our meeting venue will change to The Commonwealth Club in Yarralumla.  Meetings finish punctually by at 0830.  Just contact us and tell us you would like to attend.

Responsibilities of membership

What Rotarians get out of Rotary depends largely on what they put into it. 
  • Service: Members are required to volunteer their time and talents where they are needed most by participating in local and international service projects.
  • Finding and keeping members: To keep clubs strong, every Rotarian shares the responsibility to bring new people into Rotary by inviting guests to club meetings and inviting them to participate in a service project.
  • Dues: Club members are required to pay semi-annual dues, which includes a subscription fee to Rotary Down Under magazine.
  • Leadership: Club members are encouraged to volunteer for leadership or committee roles at the club level and beyond.

Qualifications for membership

There is no minimum age to join Rotary, but you are required to have an established career that enables you to bring a specialisation to the club. Undergraduate and graduate students should consider becoming a member of a Rotaract club or Interact for high school students.
