Rotary is Leadership
Rotary is a leadership organization and provides lots of options for you to develop as a leader and professional. There are conferences and developmental workshops held throughout the year, as well as speakers and networking.
Rotary is Service
Rotary provides you with a chance to give back to both local and international communities. We create and work at volunteering and fundraising events, and rely on our members to bring forward those that they are passionate about. Rotarians make a difference.
How to join Rotary
If being part of Rotary sounds like it fits with your values, desire to grow and give back, it is easy to get started. Just contact any of the clubs above and they will be more than happy to invite you to a meeting. The meal for the first meeting is on us.
Rotaract clubs bring together people ages 18-30 to exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service. Visit the Nanaimo Rotaract Facebook page.
Interact clubs bring together young people ages 12-18 to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of Service Above Self. Find out how serious leadership can be seriously fun.
