Rotary Connect

Rotary Connect Mission

To provide a solid first step for new Rotarians as they enter the world of Rotary and to provide an avenue for current Rotarians to get engaged in club activities.

What is Rotary Connect?

Rotary Connect is a program designed to help new club members become acclimated with 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.

Rotary Connect is also for current members of the club interested in re-acquainting or updating their knowledge about the club and connecting with fellow Rotarians.

The more you become connected to the club, become involved in some way and in some fashion, and develop new friendships along the way, the more you will value being in Rotary. At some point, you will have your own "Rotary Moment" – a time when you will realize how much you are part of a worldwide movement that truly is making a positive difference in your community and throughout the world.

Is Rotary Connect for You?

If you recently joined the Rotary Club of Long Beach, the answer is a resounding "YES"!

If you have been in the Rotary Club of Long Beach for awhile and want to learn about new opportunities to get more involved in the club, or want to get more re-connected with the club, the answer is a resounding "YES"!
