The first Rotary Club in Nigeria was formed with the assistance of Rotarian Vuilleumier. It was the Rotary Club of Kano, which was chartered on 28th April 1961.
Rotarian membership is by invitation only. You can be invited to join the club by someone who is already a member, or you can start attending a few meetings before filling out your own Prospective Member Form.
To join the club, the information below is vital:
You express interest
Let the club know a little about yourself and what you’re looking for in a club. They will find the local clubs in your area and let them know you’re interested.
Rotary matches you with a club
Based on your preferences and interests, Rotary leaders in your community will match you with the local club that fits you best.
A local club contacts you
A Rotary club member will contact you by email or phone to discuss your interest in Rotary. You’ll be invited to get to know the club better by attending a club meeting, a social event, or even to join in on a service project as a volunteer.
The club invites you to join
Now that you and a local club have spent some time together and determined that you’re a good fit for each other, you will be invited to join. Each club has its own ways of welcoming new members; they may hold a ceremony for you.
