How can I find out more about the Rotary Club of Merritt?
You can contact any of our members, and they'll be happy to invite to a meeting. There you'll get a good impression of what we are about, enjoy one of our frequent speakers, and have a chance to ask any questions you have.
How do I join?
If you are interested in joining the club, we ask that you attend three meetings, to make sure we're a good fit for each other. If you decide the commitments we expect of our members are what you want to contribute, one of our members will become your sponsor and complete the paperwork to join on your behalf.
What are the commitments of membership?
It's important to us to have a committed and engaged membership. We realize that nobody can attend all meetings, but attending as many as possible is essential to keep the club going strong. It's also important that you are available to help out in planning and executing our fundraisers - we aim for at least one major fundraiser, and several small ones every year. Besides the fundraisers, we also have regular social events, because we are much more than just members - we are friends.
What are the financial commitments?
The membership fee is $210 per year. The Rotary year runs from July to June; if you join us after the beginning of a new Rotary year, your first invoice will be pro-rated.
Other financial commitments include your meal and drinks during our meetings, and any contribution your wish to make in organizing and/or attending our fundraisers.
What does the Rotary Club of Merritt have to offer?
We are a club of dedicated volunteers who want to make a difference for our community and beyond. You'll experience personal and professional development, fellowship, and the chance to make the world a better place and be a strong role model for your family.
