Consider inviting potential members to join our club!

Take some time to reflect on your network of friends, colleagues, and associates from work, church, community, and social occasions. Then consider the following two questions:

  1. Who do you believe will potentially make a positive contribution to the Rotary Club of Erie and thus the community?

  2. Will the Rotary Club of Erie in return make a positive impact on their lives?

If so, then tell them about Rotary and educate them on the local and global benefits that the organization has on the lives of millions of people. Also enlighten them of the interaction they will have with wonderful people who share the philosophy of Service Above Self.

The following is from Rotary International:

Who can join?

We’re looking for people who want to give back to their communities.

Rotary clubs also welcome Rotaractors, Rotary Peace Fellows, and other members of the family of Rotary who qualify for membership.

How can I become a member?

Clubs accept new members by invitation. 

What are the benefits?

Becoming a Rotary member connects you with a diverse group of professionals who share your drive to give back. Through regular meetings and events, you’ll:

  • Discuss your community’s needs and develop creative ways to meet them

  • Connect with other leaders who are changing the world

  • Expand your leadership and professional skills

  • Catch up with good friends and meet new ones
