Richard D. King, Past President Rotary International - 2001/2002

• Friendship: In an increasingly complex world, Rotary provides one of the most basic human needs – the need for friends and fellowship.

• Business development: Rotary consists of a cross-section of every business community.

• Personal growth and development: Membership in Rotary continues one’s growth in human relations and personal development.

• Leadership development: Rotary is an organization of leaders and successful people. Serving in Rotary positions is like a college education in leadership.

• Citizenship in the community: The average Rotary club consists of the most active citizens of any community.

• Continuing education: Each week at Rotary there is a program designed to keep people informed as to what is going on in the world.

• Fun: Rotary provides fellowship, social activities and fun in service.

• Public speaking skills: Rotary develops confidence and skill in public communication.

• World citizenship: There are few places without a Rotary club, which means friends around the world. Assistance when traveling: Rotarians who travel can quickly find a doctor, lawyer, hotel, dentist, etc., through Rotary’s network.

• Entertainment: Rotary offers conferences, conventions, assemblies and institutes that provide entertainment in addition to Rotary information, education and service. Development of social skills: Every week, members have an opportunity to develop their people skills through Rotary activities.

• Family programs: Rotary provides one of the world’s largest Youth Exchange programs, opportunities for spouses and activities to assist family members in the development of values.

• Vocational skills: Every Rotarian is expected to contribute to the development of his or her vocation.

• Development of ethics: Rotarians practice The 4-Way Test, which governs one’s ethical standards. Rotarians are expected to be ethical in business and personal relationships.

• Cultural awareness: Virtually every country, culture, religion, race, creed, political persuasion, language, color and ethnic identity is found in Rotary. 

 

• Prestige: Rotary is the oldest and most prestigious service club in the world. Its ranks include people who influence policy.

• Nice People: Rotarians, above all, are nice people. They are important people who believe in the adage that while it is nice to be important, it is more important to be nice.

• Absence of Official Creed: Rotary has no secret rituals. It is an open society of people who believe in helping others.

• Opportunity to Serve: Rotary’s business is mankind and its product is service. This is perhaps the best reason for becoming a Rotarian – the chance to do something for somebody else while experiencing self-fulfillment in the process.
