Who are we...

Our clubs are where Rotary’s humanitarian work begins. At weekly 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.

Ready to make friends while doing good?

The Rotary Vision: “Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.” Does that feel “right” to you? If so, you might be the type of person who would be a great Rotarian. We are looking for people of action. At club meetings, our members come together to strengthen their connections to friends and neighbors and their commitment to improving lives.

Who can join?

  • People who want to give back to their communities.
  • People who want to have fun and develop friendships through service.

How can I become a member?

We accept new members by invitation. The first step is to attend meetings. Check us out.

  • Contact the Club President, Andy Thilges, Andy.Thilges@NRHotels.com and set a date to attend a meeting or set up a coffee chat.
