Membership Info


Guests & New Members

Generally members are quite welcome to invite guests at our meeting.  Please let our attendance admin know by 10am the day before for catering purposes.  It is the responsibility of the inviting member to make sure that the member or the guest pays for the guest’s meal.

Inviting potential members as a guest is essential for the person to see what our Rotary Club is about, and also for members to meet the potential member.  There is a protocol to follow for proposing new members. You can ask the current President/Secretary or a Past President/Secretary.  Growing our Club in Rotary is one of our aims.

Club guests, such as our guest speakers at a club meeting do not have to pay and are catered for by the Club.

At a club meeting where a New Member is to be inducted, the club will pay for the meal of the New Member.
