Interview for Membership

The membership interview is not a competitive process, it is an opportunity to connect with existing club leaders and talk through what you hope to achieve from membership. Being a Rotarian is about more than joining your fellow club members for breakfast every week — it’s about working to achieve positive outcomes for the community.
