Invitation to apply for membership
The Rotary Club of Las Vegas invites individuals to join and become members.
A person being considered for membership is invited by a member/sponsor to attend 2-3 club meetings to get a feel for the Rotary Club of Las Vegas and its members. The sponsor may then submit the name of the candidate to the club’s membership committee for follow-up.
Also an individual who doesn’t know any Rotarians but is interested in membership can learn more by contacting the Club Executive Director (see Contact Us).
The membership process
Before completing the membership application, a sponsor will inform the applicant of the responsibilities of membership, which include regularly attending the weekly meetings, paying dues and eventually being prepared to accept positions of responsibility in the club as their own time permits. The sponsor will assist the candidate with completing the membership application, which will be submitted to Membership Co-Chairs, who will forward it to the Club’sBoard of Directors for consideration.
The Board will consider the applicant for membership based on the membership application and knowledge of the individual. If the Board approves the applicant for membership, the candidate’s application will be forwarded to the general club membership for its concurrence. This entire procedure takes normally two to three weeks during which the applicant continues to attend the club meetings.
A candidate will be notified of the action of the club, and if approved for membership, will be invited to join the Rotary Club of Las Vegas. With acceptance, the candidate will receive an invoice for dues. This bill must be paid prior to being inducted into membership.
The new member is then invited to an Induction Ceremony at one of the regular scheduled luncheons at which time immediate family members are invited to attend. There will also be an orientation outside of the regular scheduled meetings to review the Rotary organization and Foundation in greater detail.
