About Us  
 
Rogers Noon Rotary is comprised of business leaders, educators, religious leaders, lawmakers, non-profit executives, and other civic-minded citizens who are interested in making a difference in the community in which we live. Above all, we are men and women who have the time and resources to commit to Rotary and its objective of “Service Above Self.”

Rogers Noon Rotary offers its members a variety of opportunities for fellowship and networking. Rogers is well known for its community volunteerism, and members of our Club are usually at the forefront of the initiatives. In an oftentimes-complex world, Rotary strives to provide one of the most basic human needs: the need for friendship and fellowship. Rotarian’s involvement with various committees within our club affords our members the opportunity to receive personal gratification, while learning leadership skills that carry through to their personal and professional endeavors.

WHAT IS THE COMMITMENT?

The Rogers Noon Rotary Club meets every Tuesday at the Embassy Suites, from 12:00 – 1:00pm. Each meeting includes a featured speaker and program presented by leading business people, non-profit organizations, motivational speakers and elected officials. 

As a member of Rotary, a stated minimum 60% attendance is required. Make-ups are required, and can be obtained at any Rotary Club in the world, including an online Club, www.rotaryeclubone.org.  Rotary International’s website lists individual club addresses and scheduled meeting times in order to allow Rotarians the opportunity to make-up from any location they choose. Members welcome the opportunity to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world at our Club meetings. Rotarians are expected to serve on one or more of the various committees offered through the Club.

ROTARY'S FOUR AVENUES OF SERVICE

The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster service in the Four Avenues of Service. These are expressed as Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service, and International Service. The goals of each avenue are carried out at the committee level.  To read more about each of these Avenues of Service, please visit Rotary International's website www.rotary.org

MEMBERSHIP

Rotary International establishes the prerequisites for membership in Rotary.  Briefly summarized, they state that active members of Rotary are to be adult persons of good character and good business or professional reputation.  A candidate must hold a high-level position in his or her organization and exercise decision-making responsibility. To become a member of the Rogers Noon Rotary club, an individual first must be proposed for membership by a current club member. This is achieved by the sponsor filling out a New Member Proposal form for consideration by the Membership and Classification Committees and the Board of Directors. Upon Board approval, 7-day notice to the members is given and if no objections are received, the new member meets with the Rotary Information Committee and is then inducted.

Geographical eligibility requires that members have their place of business or residence within the territorial limits of the Club or the contiguous communities.

Rogers Noon Rotary is continually looking for new members who are leaders in their professions and committed to service in the community. If you are interested in membership, please contact our club at info@rogersrotary.org 

WHAT IS THE FINANCIAL COMMITMENT? 

The emblem of Rotary symbolizes a willingness to offer more than just a financial contribution, but hands-on help when and where it is needed. As Rotarians, "we believe in what we do, and do what we believe in". 

The cost of Rotary membership includes a one-time initiation fee, annual dues, and weekly meals. Members are also asked occasionally to pay voluntary contributions to local charities, as well as an annual tax-deductible contribution to the Rotary Foundation.  Additionally, our fund-raising activities include an annual Easter ham sale, as well as a food booth at the Rogers Frisco Festival, which are included as part of our annual dues.  Members are asked to sell tickets for each of these events.

  The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

FIRST
The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;

SECOND
High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

THIRD
The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;

FOURTH
The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship
