Frequently Asked Questions

What qualifies someone to join Rotary? 

A prospective member must be in good standing in the community and be a business owner, an executive, manage their own time, or be in a managerial position to be eligible for membership.

What do I need to do to become a member?

To join, you must have a sponsor. Your sponsor will invite you to a lunch meeting where you can meet other Rotarians and experience a Rotary meeting. If you do not currently know any Rotarians, please contact the Membership Chairperson for help securing a sponsor.

 

What is the new member process?
You will be asked to complete a member application and return it, to Pleasanton North Rotary. Your application is then submitted to the Membership Committee for review. If the Membership Committee does not receive any objections, your application is then submitted to the board of directors for approval at the next scheduled meeting.

 

You are notified once your membership is approved. Your sponsor will introduce you to club members during the next regular Friday club lunch meeting that works for you both. At this meeting, you will receive a new member packet with information about the club, as well as your red name badge. You will receive a membership packet and the criteria for moving from a red to a blue badge.

Is there an orientation for new members?

Absolutely! We are committed to helping new members become fully acquainted with the Rotary organization and your fellow members. Our club’s new member orientation takes place in four parts:

  1. Participation in our regular Friday meetings where you will meet the other members.

  2. Personal meeting with an ambassador, or your sponsor, to help you understand club operations and expectations and to get engaged in our club’s programs/committees.

  3. Meeting with a past president or other club leadership.

  4. Participation in a one hour Club Red Badgers meeting.

Where are the meetings held?

Meetings are held every Friday at lunch at Hap's restaurant in Pleasanton. Come at 11:45 am for fellowship and social time. Our meetings run from 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm. Meetings end promptly at 1:30 pm.

What are the financial obligations of Rotary?

Active Members of Pleasanton North Rotary must pay an initiation fee and quarterly dues, which include dues to our Rotary district. Because members are expected to attend weekly club meetings, the cost of lunches is included in membership dues. In addition, each member is encouraged to contribute a minimum of $100 each year to the Rotary Foundation. We ask that members also support our annual fundraiser with their time, silent auction donations and/or by purchasing an event ticket. We will also periodically have other fundraisers that require a donation of your time or nominal fees.

Does Rotary have minimum attendance requirements?

To remain in good standing, Rotary expects that you attend at least 50% of scheduled meetings. Attendance at regularly scheduled committee meetings, board meetings, new member orientations, club social functions all count as meetings.
