    51. 51. 2013 RI CONVENTION SOME OF OUR FELLOWSHIP PHOTOS
    52. 52. 2013 RI CONVENTION What are Rotary Fellowships? Groups of Rotarians, Rotarian spouses and Rotaractors who unite to: – Share a common interest in worthwhile recreational activities (sports, hobbies, etc.) – Further their vocational development through acquaintance with others of the same profession – Make new friends around the world – Explore new opportunities for service – Have fun and enhance their experience in Rotary
    53. 53. 2013 RI CONVENTION Other Benefits of Rotary Fellowships Rotary Fellowships... • Offer opportunities for Rotarians to make lasting friendships outside of one’s own club, district and country • Contribute to the advancement of world understanding and peace • Serve as an incentive for attracting new members to Rotary and for retaining existing members
    54. 54. 2013 RI CONVENTION Rotary Fellowships History • Rotary Fellowships informally began in 1928 when a group of Rotarians with an interest in Esperanto joined together. In 1947, Rotarians organized a group of boating enthusiasts, which became the Yachting Fellowship. • These activities gained more attention and operated over the years as World Fellowship Activities, International Vocational Contact Groups, Rotary Recreational and Vocational Fellowships, and finally, Rotary Fellowships. • As of 14 June 2013, there are 63 Rotary Fellowships.
    55. 55. 2013 RI CONVENTION How Rotary Fellowships Operate • Each Fellowship is officially recognized by the RI Board of Directors, but operates independently of Rotary International, with its own rules, dues requirements, and administrative structure. • Membership in fellowships is open to Rotarians, spouses of Rotarians and Rotaractors. • Each fellowship must maintain a membership base representing at least three different countries. • Each fellowship elects at least three officers to oversee the group’s operations. • Fellowships are expected to facilitate communication amongst their members and to maintain regular communication with Rotary International.
    56. 56. 2013 RI CONVENTION Fellowships at the International Convention • Fellowships often use the International Convention in June as an opportunity to plan meetings and activities for attending members from around the world. • Fellowship exhibits make up a vital part of the House of Friendship, and groups use this opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments, plan for the future, and recruit new members.
    57. 57. 2013 RI CONVENTION How to Join a Rotary Fellowship • Contact a group that interests you directly using contact information found on www.rotary.org/fellowships, or in the Rotary Fellowships Directory. • Contact your district Rotary Fellowships chairperson for guidance. • If a group for your interests does not currently exist, contact RI Staff for information on how to start a new group.
