Rotarians exemplify “Service about Self”. Rotarians are expected to provide leadership in our community, as well as our profession or business, on an individual basis as well as a part of a Rotary sponsored project.
100% meeting attendance is certainly encouraged but not a requirement as we are all busy individuals. Rotarians try to attend each weekly Club meeting or make it up at another Rotary Club when possible. A list of Rotary Clubs in the metropolitan area, together with their meeting places, data, and time is provided on the district website (www.rotary5960.org). When you make up a meeting, turn in your attendance card from that Club to our Club secretary for attendance credit.
