Invitation to Apply for Membership

The Rotary Club of Clinton invites individuals to join and become members.

A person being considered for membership is invited by a member/sponsor to attend 2-3 club meetings to get a feel for the Rotary Club of Clinton and its members. The sponsor may then submit the name of the candidate to the club’s membership committee for follow-up.

Also, an individual who doesn’t know any Rotarians but is interested in membership can learn more by contacting the Club’s Board of Directors or email the club at: rotaryclubofclintonia@gmail.com.

The Membership Process

Before completing the membership application, a sponsor will inform the applicant of the responsibilities of membership, which include regularly attending the weekly meetings, paying dues and eventually being prepared to accept positions of responsibility in the club as their own time permits. The sponsor will assist the candidate with completing the membership application, which will be submitted to the Membership Chair, who will forward it to the Club’s Board of Directors for consideration.

 

The Board will consider the applicant for membership based on the membership application and knowledge of the individual. If the Board approves the applicant for membership, the candidate’s application will be forwarded to the general club membership for its concurrence. This entire procedure takes normally about three weeks during which the applicant continues to attend the club meetings.

 

A candidate will be notified of the action of the club, and if approved for membership, will be invited to join the Rotary Club of Clinton. With acceptance, the candidate will receive an invoice for dues. This bill must be paid prior to being inducted into membership.

The new member is then invited to an Induction Ceremony at one of the regularly scheduled luncheons.. There will also be an orientation outside of the regularly scheduled meetings to review the Rotary organization and Foundation in greater detail.
