9. Club extension
Do you want to start a Rotary club but don’t have enough members? Are you in a Rotary club that isn’t meeting your or your members’ expectations? Are there members who love your club but can’t keep attending when it meets? Would you like to start a new club with a small, energetic group committed to community service? Then you might want to start anew club.
Types of clubs
- Traditional Rotary club: Professionals and aspiring leaders who meet regularly for service, connections, and personal growth
- Next-Gen: Rotary's long heritage is blended into the new, information-rich world in which we live. The result is a new generation of Clubs that embrace the demands of a faster-paced environment and create the opportunity for more people to become involved in Rotary service to the community.
- Satellite club: A Rotary club sponsored by a traditional club but with its own meetings, projects, bylaws, and board
- E-club: A Rotary club that meets primarily online
- Passport club: A Rotary club that allows members to attend other Rotary club meetings as long as they attend a specified number of meetings in their own club each year
- Corporate club: A club whose members (or most of them) work for the same employer
- Cause-based club: A club whose members are passionate about a particular cause and focus their service efforts in that area
- Alumni-based club: A club whose members (or most of them) are former Rotary or Rotary Foundation program participants
- Rotaract club: A club of members ages 18-30 that is sponsored by a Rotary club and often works with that club on projects.
