Financial Obligations and Attendance Requirements
 
Financial Obligations
  • There is a one-time new member cost of $75.  
  • The cost of dues (club, district, and Rotary International) is $212.50 per year (billed as $62.50 per quarter). The cost of meals is $201.50 per quarter. The cost for your first quarter is prorated. 
  • Statements of dues are emailed quarterly to the address you have on file.  Payment can be made by check or credit card.   
Other Financial Considerations
  • In our annual fundraiser, we have historically raised $45,000-$50,000. We ask that you fundraise at least $600.
  • We hold an auction every year to raise money for Armful of Love to provide families with Christmas presents. We hope that you will participate by either donating (or finding a donor) for the auction, or bidding in the auction. What you spend is your choice.
  • We ask our members to give annually to The Rotary Foundation. The extent of this gift is your choice.
  • We occasionally have social events, and sometimes these events have a cost. This cost is typically not covered by the club. Your attendance is optional.
  • Our meetings include a variety of fines, and a raffle. You can be fined for showing up late, skipping a meeting and not documenting your make-up, getting trivia questions wrong, or paying a “happy fine” to share news you’re excited about. Members are typically fined $1-$5 per week.
  • We also hold a weekly raffle, which is entirely voluntary.
Attendance Requirements
As a member of our club you are asked to attend at least 50 percent of weekly club meetings in a six-month period.
 
Attendance Options
If you’re unable to attend a meeting, you can make-up that meeting by attending a meeting of another Rotary club (local, online, or elsewhere). Use the club finder at https://www.rotary.org/en/search/club-finder to find meeting locations and times. Club activities such as board meetings, service projects, and social events are also allowable make-ups, as are district wide events.
