STEPS TO JOIN THE FUN!
Steps for Becoming a Member of the Rotary Club of Duvall
Step 1: Potential members are invited by a club member or self-select to attend a minimum of three meetings to see what the club is about and if it is a good fit.
Step 2: The potential member will identify a club sponsor who will support them in completing the application process.
Step 3: The sponsor will work with the potential member to submit an Application for Membership and the potential member will submit the $50 admission fee.
Step 4: The Board of Directors will review the application and determine whether or not to present the potential member to the full club as a potential member. If the board votes to present the potential member to the full club, an email will be sent to the club seeking input about the potential member.
Step 5: Once the full club has had a minimum of three days to respond, the Board of Directors will review any input and vote on whether or not to extend an invitation to join the club.
Step 6: Once approved for membership, the approved candidate is announced to the membership (and must be present) at three Rotary Club meetings.
Step 7: The Membership Chair schedules the induction ceremony and secures the folder, certificate, and pin that will be given to the new member.
Step 8: The Membership Chair will distribute the approved application to the Secretary and to the Treasurer, so that the member-to-be may be added into our records and accounting system. Treasurer is responsible for communicating the new member join date, contact information, etc. to the book keepers for proper invoicing. Secretary is responsible for updating DacDB with the new member information from the application form, including contact information, join date, etc. and informing the Treasurer about the new official membership data.

Regular attendance at weekly meetings is strongly encouraged. Attendance is a primary means of staying in touch with club activities and building strong friendships. Minimum expectation is 50% attendance. Attendance at club events, projects, board meetings, other clubs’ meetings, and on-line meetings are accepted as “makeups”, however 30% is expected to be at the local club meetings.
In addition to the weekly meetings, approximately two club assemblies (“firesides”) are scheduled during the year to gather input from club members regarding club direction and activities. An annual banquet is held to install new officers and board. Members are strongly encouraged to attend these events.
As a service organization, we expect some participation in our service activities. However, we recognize the time constraints of personal and business life, and do not expect you to participate in all activities. Rather, we expect you, as a member, to choose to participate in those activities that are of particular interest to you or in the ways that fit best for you.
