Dues are $120 per quarter and are paid in January, April, July, and October Contribute something financially on an annual basis to The Rotary Foundation ($100 suggested) Attend Rotary Basics – Rotary University Southwest, 1 day course We think it’s only fair to set the expectations of our family from the beginning.
  15. 15.

  17. 17. Expectations of Our Leaders Attend District Events specific to Chair Position Attend District Assembly/Spring Training (and workshops/training specific to Chair Position) Attend Rotary University - Rotary Basics Attend majority of weekly meetings each month Attend majority of club socials, community service events, fundraising events, etc. Bring Guests to any club events Be current on quarterly dues and demonstrate the ability to pay quarterly dues in a timely manner. Dues are $120 per quarter and are paid in January, April, July, and October Contribute something financially on an annual basis to The Rotary Foundation ($100 suggested) Mentor a New Member In the same spirit as Membership, we think it’s only fair to set the expectations of our Leadership team, Club Officers and Board Member Committee Chairs from the beginning.
  18. 18. Expectations of Our Leaders Ahead of - or during President Nominee Year: Attend Rotary University's 1st two sessions - Rotary Basics and Club Ops. (Club pays and should be added to budget for PN to go) Have served as an Officer (Treasurer, Secretary, or Sergeant at Arms) OR a Committee Chair on the Club's Board (may do so during their year as a President Nominee Designate) Be an active member of 1 additional committee (Or specifically either Club Service or Fundraising) During President Elect Year: Attend Lone Star PETS (Club pays) Attend RILI (may also attend during PN year) (Club pays) Attend majority of District's Leadership and Training Opportunities provided specifically for PE's (from our dues paid to District, we pay for these programs to be developed and provided, our PE's should take advantage of them - or it's wasting a portion of what we pay to District, and it also wastes opportunities to form relationships with classmates, develop joint projects with other clubs, future joint social and service collaboration with other clubs, etc.). During President Year: Attend majority of District Functions: Roundtables and Club Development Opportunities (ie. Membership Showcase, Foundation and Grant Certification District Assembly/Spring Training District Conference/Celebration District Foundation Signature Fundraiser or District Signature Service Event (Gala or Adoption Awareness, by example). For those times when Club Pres. cannot attend, a designated Pres. Rep, such as PE, PN, PD should be accompanying the Committee Chair, Committee Members to the events. In the same spirit as Membership and the Leadership Team we think it’s only fair to set the expectations of our future Club Presidents from the beginning.
  19. 19. "May Rotarians continue to be ambassadors of good- will to high and low, rich and poor, to all races, to the devotees of all religious faiths and to members of all political parties, purveyors of tolerance, forbearance, justice, kindliness, neighborliness and friendliness to the inhabitants of this snug little world, the best little world of which we know." Paul P. Harris, "This Rotarian Age" page 257, 1935. The exclusively inclusive Rotary Club.
