About Rotary Membership

Be Part of Something BIG

Since 1911, The Rotary Club of Dallas has dedicated itself to making Dallas a better place for all in which to live. Stimulating weekly programs, fellowship activities and service opportunities define The Rotary Club of Dallas. Some of the programs include: mentoring at risk students, providing personalized books to encourage reading for low income kindergartners, saluting American veterans, encouraging bike safety to elementary children, teaching high school students about the free enterprise system, and providing clean water to villages in Africa.

You will make a great Rotarian if you:

  • Care about your community and want to make it better
  • Are willing to give “hands on” service to others, using
    the talents you posses
  • Enjoy fun and fellowship with other business leaders
  • Want to learn more about your community and the world via stimulating programs

Service to others can transform your life. Rotary is where you learn how!

What is Rotary?

You’ve no doubt seen the ubiquitous Rotary logo. As the world’s oldest service organization it’s literally everywhere. A symbol of service, fellowship and goodwill, the Rotary wheel is one of the most recognized logos in the world. As a Rotary member, you are a part of something big. You are connected to a worldwide network of 1.2 million business and community leaders from all walks of life  who  share the same beliefs - that service to others, high ethical standards and friendship  are the basis of a fulfilling life.

Members of The Rotary Club of Dallas, founded in 1911, represent a cross-section of Dallas’  business owners,  executives, managers, political leaders and professionals - people who care about others as they make decisions and influence policy. Whether you are new to Dallas, new to a job, looking for new ways to get involved or are just looking for a way to enjoy old friends or meet new ones, Rotary is your connection!

A link to what's happening today

Every Wednesday The Rotary Club of Dallas meets at noon to hear from distinguished speakers. Our stimulating meetings feature informative speakers such as national elected officials, key business figures, political analysts and other experts whose experiences and observations broaden our perspectives and our development as individuals. Our subject matter ranges from the local scene to matters of international importance. Rotary is nonpolitical and nonreligious, a place where we value all points of view. But it’s not just hearing speakers. Each weekly meeting is an opportunity to network and share knowledge. Beyond our weekly meetings and service projects, we host a range of social activities such as monthly happy hours , concerts, parties and international trips - just a few of the diversions offered from today’s demanding professional and personal schedules.

Benefits of Membership


An original goal of Rotary was to allow club members to meet periodically and enlarge their circle of business and professional acquaintances. As members of the oldest service club in the world, Rotarians represent a cross-section of their community’s business owners, executives, managers, political leaders, and professionals. People who make decisions and influence policy. 


Club members have many opportunities for humanitarian service, both locally and internationally. Service programs address concerns such as education, youth, veterans, illiteracy, and the environment. Rotarians regularly experience the fulfillment that comes from giving back to the community. 


Rotary was founded on fellowship, a cornerstone that continues to attract members today. Rotarians enjoy camaraderie with like-minded professionals, and club projects provide opportunities to develop enduring friendships. Club members who travel have friendly contacts in almost every city of the world. 


Encouraging high ethical standards and respect for all worthy vocations has been a hallmark of Rotary from its earliest days. In their business and professional lives, Rotarians abide by The Four-Way Test: Of the things we think, say or do Is it the TRUTH?  Is it FAIR to all concerned?  Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?  Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned? 


Rotary is an organization of successful professionals. Team-building, fundraising, public speaking, planning, organization, and communication are just some of the leadership skills that club members can exercise and enhance. Being a Rotary leader provides further experience in motivating, inspiring, and guiding others.
