Requirements of Membership
Prospective members must:
MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION & APPLICATION
- Be adults who have demonstrated good character, integrity, and leadership; have a good reputation in their business, profession, and community; and are willing to serve in their community and around the world.
- meet the club’s attendance and community project participation requirements; and
- be an individual of good character and good professional reputation.
The Membership Process
Often a person being considered for membership is invited by a sponsoring member to attend one or more club meetings to learn more about Rotary. The sponsor may then submit the name of the candidate to the club’s membership committee or Board of Directors.
Anyone interested in membership who does not know any local Rotarians should start by reviewing the Rotary International website at l https://www.rotary.org/en to learn about Rotary and search for a local club at https://www.rotary.org/en/search/club-finder. Contact the local club and a member of the Club will contact you.
Two levels of membership are offered, Individual and Corporate Membership. The requirements, privileges and responsibilities are the same for both levels. However, Corporate Membership permits the business or organization to designate up to four members so that attendance can be rotated when the Primary Contact Member is unable to attend.
Responsibilities & Expectations of Members
Active Participation: Every member is obliged to support the Club’s community service activities including fund raising and volunteer service on projects designated by the club. In addition, every member is expected to serve on at least one Club committee.
Meeting Times and Place: You will be notified of the local club meeting schedule (currently biweekly on the first and third Wednesdays at 5:00 pm) and location (currently Rose’s Family Restaurant, Oxford).
Quarterly Dues: Quarterly dues are $45.00 for Individual members, and $50.00 for Corporate members. Dues cover membership in Rotary International, a monthly subscription to The Rotarian magazine and Club administrative costs. Dues can be paid quarterly or annually and are payable by check to “the AnSeOx Rotary Club”. Corporate dues will cover the dues for up to four full members so they can participate fully as a Rotarian in all club duties and activities. Meal costs are billed separately or can be paid at the meeting.
Attendance: Members are expected to participate in meetings as designated by the local club by-laws either through attendance at our Club meetings or by attending meetings at other area Rotary Clubs or Clubs located throughout the United States and around the world.
Leaves of Absence: Leaves of absence can be granted by approval by the Club’s Board of Directors by contacting the Board directly in person or in writing.
Application: Prospective members, Individual and Corporate must complete the membership application and submit it with a check in the amount of the quarterly or annual amount (noted above) payable to “The AnSeOx Rotary Club” to cover Rotary International semi-annual dues and the Club’s application fee. The Board will review and respond to the application within 30 days.
