Rotarians in 200 countries and 33,700 clubs may differ in customs, but every member shares one thing in common: they were proposed for membership.
The process to propose new members to Phoenix Rotary 100 is simple and brief. First, introduce your guest to Rotary by inviting them to attend a Friday lunch meeting or event. Be sure to introduce your guest to your Rotarian friends and Club leadership.
If they express an interest in becoming a member of Phoenix Rotary 100, refer them to Executive Director Beth Sheehan and Director of Membership Andrea Moseley to follow up and explain the Phoenix Rotary 100 membership requirements and new member process.
Next, the prospective member will be asked to complete an application for membership and will be required to have one Rotarian sponsor within Phoenix Rotary 100. All applicants need a sponsor with whom they have met and spent time.
Then, the candidate’s application is reviewed by a member of the Club’s Classification Committee who will telephone the candidate’s references. The Classification Committee votes and determines a classification. The applicant names are then posted to the membership for a five-day waiting period. Lastly, the applicant receives the news.
