Membership in any professional or civic organization requires its members to pay dues on an annual basis. Each Rotary Club has a different fee schedule, usually established in its Bylaws and based on a number of factors (i.e. meals included, special assessments, location rental, etc.). You can always contact a Rotary Club and inquire about their fees.
In addition to fees, many Rotary Clubs participate in traditions like “Happy Dollars” where you share dollar for each personal announcement (celebrating a birthday, anniversary, graduation) or business plug. This is always done in a joyous rotation around the meeting room, giving each person a chance to share their happy thoughts.
Additional expenses include attending the Rotary Leadership Institute, a professional development and training event held 2-3 times a year, as well as fundraisers, dinner events or other Rotary celebrations that require the purchase of an individual ticket to attend.
