Who doesn't like making friends?
(real ones, not AI generated)
As a member of Rotary Sunderland or its Satellites, you are connected with a diverse group of professionals who share your drive to give back to the community. Through our regular meetings and events, you will be able to discuss your community’s needs and develop creative ways to meet them. You will be able to connect with other leaders who are changing the world. Your leadership and professional skills will be enhanced through engagements with like minded people. And, in terms of wellbeing, you'll be able to catch up with good friends and meet new ones too.
Yesterday a stranger. Today a friend.
Do you know that Rotary is one of the original social networks? Becoming a member is a great way to expand your social circles, meet new people, catch up with the old ones and make lasting friendships, all while having fun and making a difference.
Your skill set is valuable.
You can share your personal and vocational skills, take up leadership roles, as well as learning from fellow members on activities such as project planning, communications and service delivery.
Events such as the annual Rotary Showcase and the international Convention offer opportunities to be inspired by guest speakers and develop your global understanding.
Business is important.
Rotary was founded as a business networking group, and this still plays a part in Rotary today. Making connections with other members, not just in our club but across the nation and the world, can enhance your professional life.
You become the change.
Rotary’s reputation has allowed us to establish relationships with leading national and international charities, putting us at the forefront of change.
Make distances smaller.
With 1.4 million members in 46,000+ clubs in over 200 countries, we are a global network of neighbours, friends and problem solvers, making a difference in our communities.
There are other benefits of membership too!
It's our member benefits program, which offers discounts on products and services. It’s Rotary’s way of helping our members spend less so they can do more.
This is our biggest event of the year. Rotary members from more than 130 countries meet at the convention each year to celebrate our successes and make plans for the future.
These fellowships give members the chance to join a group of people who share similar interests, hobbies, or vocations. Some groups use their fellowship to make a positive difference.
They unite Rotary members, family members, program participants and alumni who share their expertise in particular fields by collaborating with clubs and districts on projects.
