We are 1.2 million neighbours, friends, and community leaders who are creating positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world. Our diverse experiences, occupations and cultures give us a unique perspective. Our shared passion for service helps us accomplish remarkable feats. 
 
Our clubs are where Rotary’s humanitarian work begins. At club meetings, members not only catch up with friends and hear what’s happening in our communities, they also exchange ideas for creating positive change. But it doesn’t stop there.
 
Our global network makes it possible for members to connect with business, professional, and community leaders anywhere in the world. You can experience a new culture, use your professional skills for a good cause, or simply share a hobby. If you can’t do it at home, you can surely do it at Rotary’s annual convention, where our diverse membership comes together for inspiration, education, and fun.
