This is the best fraternity in the world!
Rotary is the largest service organization in the world with members in over 200 countries. Rotary International membership has the largest number of business and civic leaders in Houston as well as business owners and professionals that live as far away as Doha, Qatar, Washington DC, Los Angeles, New Orleans and Brasilia, Brazil. Rotary in Houston is larger than the Greater Houston Partnership, the largest networking organization of business and professional leaders anywhere.
We are a Rotary International Presidential Citation with Platinum Distinction Award Club. No other Rotary club our size in our District has received such an honor!
Rotary Opens Opportunities
“I encourage Rotarians to seize the many opportunities Rotary offers to enrich our lives and the communities we serve. Rotary isn’t just a club for people to join, but rather an invitation to endless opportunities. We believe that our acts of service, big and small, create opportunities for people who need our help and the enjoyment of our friendships working together.
Rotary creates leadership opportunities and gives members the chance to travel the world to put their service ideas into action and make lifelong connections. Everything we do opens another opportunity for someone, somewhere.
Every new member changes us a little. That person brings a new perspective and new experiences. We need to embrace this constant renewal. We will grow stronger as we learn from new members.
Time won’t slow down for Rotary. We will not let rapid change defeat us. We capture this moment to grow Rotary, making it stronger, more adaptable, and even more aligned with our core values.”
Holger Knaack, President, Rotary International 2020-2021
