Join the World's Greatest Rotary Club Today!

Pleasanton North Rotary has a reputation of being a fun club with dedicated, passionate members who get things done! 

What We Do
We work with a variety of nonprofits in the Tri-Valley community to help those in need by organizing and volunteering for local aid projects, by offering grants through our 501(c)(3) Foundation, and by planning successful FUNdraising events (and they're really fun!). We also assist international aid projects and send members abroad to work side-by-side with nonprofit organizations and community leaders in those countries.

Who We Are
We have a diverse group of hard-working members, community leaders, problem-solvers and movers-and-shakers. Our member ages range from 24 to 95, and every one of us believes in the Rotary motto, Service Above Self. 

Join the Family
Being a Rotarian is like joining a large international family!  Even if you travel to another city, state, or country, you can always find local Rotarians who will go out of their way for you.  We also often join forces with other Area 4 or District 5170 Rotary Clubs to make a bigger impact.  Our district's current District Governor and Assistant Governor are members of PNR!

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, or manage their own time 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 us at admin@pnr-rotary.org, and we can connect you with our 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 admin@pnr-rotary.org. Your application is then submitted to the Membership Committee for review. If approved by the Membership Committee, your application is then submitted to the Board of Directors for approval.

 

You are notified once your membership is approved. Your sponsor will introduce you to club members during the a 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?

Our Meetings are normally held every Friday at noon for lunch at Hap's Original Steaks & Seafood Restaurant in Pleasanton. Please contact us at admin@pnr-rotary.org if you would like more information about attending our weekly meeting.

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 $50 each year to The Rotary Foundation. We also ask that members also support our annual fundraisers with their volunteer time, auction/raffle donations and/or by purchasing an event ticket. 

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.
