New members



Membership in a Rotary club is by invitation. We welcome you to connect with our club if that's right for you. At Chester Rotary, we make it easy for you to get involved and on your way to becoming a proud Rotarian quickly.

1.  You express interest

Glad you are here on our website; If you like you can simply drop a line at or use our contact form to let us know you’re interested in joining the Rotary Club of Chester. 

2.  A Club representative contacts you

Once we receive your email, Our Membership Chair will contact you by email or phone to discuss your interest in Rotary. You’ll be invited to get to know the club better by attending a club meeting, a social event, or even to join in on a service project as a volunteer.

3.  The club invites you to join

Now that we have spent some time together and determined that we’re a good fit for each other, you will be invited to join. Once you complete your membership application a 7-day letter is sent to the current membership. If there is no objection from anyone in the current membership you will be approved for membership. You will be sent an invoice for the Club dues etc. and A date for your induction ceremony where you are encouraged to invite your friends and family as well.  The President or another Senior member of the club will formally induct you into the club.

4.  You’re a member!

Enjoy getting involved in your new club as a Rotary member. Get involved. Join a committee. Lead a service project. Organize a social event. Lead and contribute to your new club. Remember just like anything else, you get out of your membership in proportion to what you put in.
