Rotary 101

What is Rotary 101?

Rotary 101 is a program designed to help new club members to become acclimated to the Rotary Club of Long Beach.  As one of the largest 50 clubs out of 35,000 Rotary clubs in the world, we recognize the need for newly introduced members to have a practical next step that will help them become more connected and more oriented with our vast club.

We also find that the more a new Rotarian becomes connected to the club, becomes involved in some way in some fashion, and develops new friendships along the way, the more the value of being in Rotary.  At some point in a new Rotarian's journey, they will have their own "Rotary Moment", a time when they realize how much they are part of a worldwide movement that truly is making a positive difference in their respective communities and throughout the world.

What are the objectives of Rotary 101?

  1. To become more acquainted and connected with other new Rotarians and with other Rotarians.
  2. To become more acquainted and connected with our vast club and Rotary-at-large.
  3. To become involved and actively engaged in Rotary relative to one's time, talent and/or treasure.
  4. To have a program that is easy to maintain and is easy to pass off to future leadership.
