WELCOME TO THE ROTARY CLUB OF RIO RANCHO, NEW MEXICO

Benefits of Rotary Membership

 

Service 

Service Above Self is our motto. Rotarian's participate in local and international service projects. Club members can volunteer their time and talent where they are most effective and needed.                           

Five Avenues of Service
are Rotary’s philosophical cornerstone on which club activity is based:

  • Club Service works to strengthen fellowship of members through training and hospitality. Clubs have serious topics to work toward, so having various social events that bring members and their guests informally and for fun, contributes to genuine fellowship.
  • Vocational Service encourages members to serve other people through their vocations, education, skillsets, which encourages high ethical standards. October is Vocation Service Month when the many club service projects are celebrated.
  • Community Service is exactly what the name implies — projects and activities each club undertakes to improve community life. There are many projects in the Rio Rancho area in which Rotary Club volunteers have been involved: A Park Above, Senior Centers, scholarships, and more.
  • International Service volunteers work to expand the Rotarians’ humanitarian work around the world. This important service promotes understanding and peace, sponsors projects in other countries and works with international partners to support projects in their communities.  encompasses Rotary’s humanitarian effort around the world, promotes global goodwill through travel exchanges and international service projects.
  • New Generations Service works to engage youths and young adults in leadership roles. Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a training program for young people, ages 14 to 30. The award emphasizes leadership and citizenship. Rotaract is an International Youth Program is for ages 18 to 30 while Interact focuses on international service for youths 12 to 18.

Weekly club meetings allows members to enjoy fellowship, organize public services, enrich their personal knowledge, and meet other community leaders. If members miss a meeting they are encouraged to make it up at a nearby Rotary Club or any Rotary International Club across the globe Club Locator. Members may also attend a virtual Member Access Rotary meeting.

 

Membership - Rotary Shares
