Who should join?

Any adult age 18 or up who is interested in leadership development – either learning or teaching – is welcome to join our Rotary Fellowship. While we do welcome Rotarians and Rotaractors, membership in a Rotary Club or a Rotaract Club is not required to join our fellowship. Our fellowship brings together people who want to improve their own leadership skills with people who want to share their leadership experiences and learnings. We take members from all countries.

If that sounds like you, then consider joining!

What is the cost?

We have created a system that we think balances out fairness with critical operating costs. All membership dues go towards the operational expenses of the fellowship. The fellowship has no paid staff, and does not plan on making a profit for itself. The cost of the first-year is a little higher for us to cover the cost of the pin and also some initial costs.

Membership Dues: US$25 for your first year of membership, and US$15 per renewal year afterward.

Beyond membership dues, there are also costs for ticketed events. Attendance for ticketed events is optional.

Learn together with leaders from around the world.

When we first started the interest group for the Rotary LEAD Fellowship in 2021, we never dreamed we would so quickly receive submissions of interest from over 500 leaders from around the world. We asked these global leaders what were some of the reasons they were excited about the Rotary LEAD Fellowship and what drove them to want to join our movement. Their answers are in the word cloud image but included words you would expect such as leadership, fellowship, and networking. But it also included words less expected, such as exploring, dynamic, collaboration, different, international, and experience.

We are excited to be working together with so many leaders to grow this new community and to learn from one another.
