Prospective Member Contact Information

 

We meet each Thursday evening at 6pm for 6.30pm at the Aspley Hornets Club, Graham Road, Carseldine.
Parking is easy and visitors, Rotarians from other clubs and guests are most welcome.

 

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Rotarian. Rotary is a humanitarian service organisation and we are focused on fulfilling community needs at both the local and international community levels. Our programs are far-reaching and encompass a wide variety of local concerns as well as international issues such as hunger, health, and education. 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 who are interested in our mission and in joining our Rotary club. Our universal premise is that the membership of each club constitutes an accurate reflection or representation of the business and professional population within the community served. Membership in a Rotary club requires available business or professional classification opportunities, as well as an invitation and sponsorship by a member of the club. Please email our secretary secretary.aspley@rotary9600.org with your contact details. Thank you for your interest.


 

A little more information about some more benefits of membership to the individual:
Rotary members are able to enjoy many benefits of their membership.

Rotary Fellowships are international groups of individuals who enjoy sharing vocational and recreational interests in scores of Fellowships that meet the interests of members. Examples are Antique, classic and historic Automobile World Fellowship of Rotarians, International Home Exchange Fellowship of Rotarians, fishing, gourmets, doll lovers, fine arts, bridge, musicians, lawyers, doctors, skiers fellowships and dozens more.

There is also Rotary Friendship Exchange where Districts send teams of travellers to visit another national or international District where they are hosted, guided and entertained for a few weeks. These exchanges are usually reciprocal. 

Our District 9600 is engaging in a 2 week exchange visit with a Rotary District from Wisconsin USA where they will send a team of 12 Rotarians and partners in March 2015, with a reciprocal visit in September 2015.

These visits are often combined with further private travel at the discretion of the Rotarians.

Activities such as these do much to enhance and further the ideals of Rotary to further international understanding and of course are a most enjoyable aspect of Rotary.

What 30-Somethings need to know about Rotary

By Michael Bucca, a member of the Rotary Club of Central Ocean Toms River, New Jersey, USA

You might think that I, a 32-year-old member of a 110-year-old organization, would be preoccupied with trying to modernize my club’s way of doing things. But remarkably, my experience in Rotary is teaching me to spend more energy convincing my generation – which keeps trying to reinvent everything – that there is much to be gained in the lost art of personal connection.
