Becoming a Rotarian

Kona Sunrise Rotary Club
What would it take to change the world? Rotary's 1.2 million members believe it starts with a commitment to Service Above Self.

When you join the Rotary Club of Kona Sunrise, you'll find members and friends volunteering in our community and abroad to change the world with projects that support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio.

And you will be part of a fun club, providing opportunities for fellowship and networking among local professionals.

Thank you for your interest in our Rotary Club. Rotary International is an association of individual clubs, with each club operating autonomously. Membership is extremely important to us, and we are always eager to hear from individuals interested in our mission and in becoming a Rotarian.

Who Are Rotarians?

Rotarians are business and professional leaders, in positions of responsibility, who take an active role in their communities while greatly enriching their personal and professional lives. A Rotary club contains a diverse group of professional leaders from the community that the club serves.

Membership Requirements

The Rotary International's universal premise is that the membership of each club constitutes an accurate representation of the business and professional population within the community served.

We should tell you that no one "joins" Rotary. Membership in a Rotary club requires an available business or professional classification, as well as an invitation and sponsorship by a current member of the club. Sometimes an individual cannot be invited or sponsored for membership.

Membership Benefits

Membership in a Rotary club offers a number of benefits, including:

  • Effecting change within the community
  • Advancing business and professional contacts
  • Developing leadership skills
  • Gaining an understanding of – and an impact on – international humanitarian issues

Through Rotary International's service programs, a Rotary club can have a significant effect on the quality of life in its community. Rotary Foundation programs offer opportunities to form international partnerships that help people in need worldwide. Some 1.2 million Rotarians in over 34,000 clubs in more than 2000 countries make significant contributions to the quality of life at home and around the globe.
