Join RotaryHow to Become a MemberRotary is always seeking new members; but it is the quality--not the quantity--of membership that counts. For this reason, member recruitment is done by invitation and member recommendation only. If you have not been invited to join Rotary, and you are an interested business or professional leader in Osceola County, the Kissimmee Bay Rotary club would be happy to host you at one of our meetings.Our members are happy to share Rotary with you. If you are being considered for membership, you may attend meetings at our expense until your official induction into our club.CommitmentsTime Commitment:Rotarians serve and work together to better local communities and the world. Rotarians are expected to be faithful and consistent participants in Rotary projects, meetings and events. The requirement listed below are minimum requirements, but true Rotarians seldom are satisfied with minimal efforts!Attendance:Our one-hour meetings are held weekly except for legal holidays. Our club by-laws require a minimum of 60% attendance, but we encourage 100% attendance. A missed meeting can be made up at any of the Rotary Clubs worldwide. Make-ups must be within a four-week window (two weeks before the missed meeting or two weeks after the missed meeting.) Club Service and International Service: Members are encouraged to support all club functions, programs, and fund raisers.Financial Commitment: New members pay a one-time initiation fee. Annual dues ($125) and meals ($11 per week) are invoiced quarterly and payable in advance. We encourage our members to support The Rotary Foundation with an annual contirbution of $100. There are other expenses throughout the year, of course, depending on various club projects and functions.Other Commitments: Rotarians are expected to be generous with time, talent, and resources. Rotarians serve and work together to better local communities and the world. Rotarians are expected to be faithful and consistent participants in Rotary projects, meetings, and events.Leadership Commitment: Rotarians are expected to be leaders, and to lead in an exemplary manner.
