Who can be a member of the Club?
A prominent representative of a certain profession, a business owner, a manager or a high-level specialist in various fields of professional activity, who is entitled to take own and independent decisions and shares the basic principles of the Rotary movement can become a member of the club.
When selecting a potential member of the Club the following five points are essential:
- Is the candidate respectable and socially active?
- Is the candidate and his enterprise highly ranked?
- Does the candidate share the idea of charity and patronage?
- Is the candidate financially reliable?
- Can the candidate regularly attend the Club meetings and participate in the Club’s daily life?
Having become a Rotarian, the candidate should realize:
– that he is invited by this club, and the great credence has been given to him by the Rotary fraternity,
– he has been taken aboard by the Club upon confirmation of the fact that he occupies a worthy place in his work, he is known as a highly moral specialist, and he is the only one who represents the certain field of activity in the Club,
– the board of directors supported his candidacy,
– the whole Club voted for him,
– an invitation to the Rotary Club is a recognition of professional merit and the best human qualities,
– he is expected to present a worthy candidate for joining the Club in the future.
By entering the Club and presenting the certain field of activity, the Rotarian takes on great responsibility and embodies the “Rotarian spirit” in his daily activities.
