Join Rotary?

Rotarians are business and community leaders who take an active role in their communities while greatly enriching their personal and professional lives. A Rotary club contains a diverse group of professional leaders from the community that the club serves.

Rotarians are members of Rotary clubs. Rotary clubs belong to Rotary International. To become a Rotarian, you must be invited to join a Rotary club by a member of that club.

A qualified candidate for Rotary club membership is an adult of good character and good business, professional, or community reputation. The candidate fits the following criteria:

  • Works or lives within Concord or within a city/unincorporated area immediately adjacent to Concord.
  • Holds or is retired from an executive position with discretionary authority in any worthy and recognized business or profession and/or community volunteer work.

Membership in the Concord-Diablo Rotary Club is by invitation only. If you are interested in learning more, please ask a current member, or email Eric Maldonado, Membership Chair.

Unlimited memberships include meal fees and dues for all regular meetings, the investment is approximately $300 every three months.

Corporate membership for four members will cost $3,600 per year plus $100 initiation fee and will be billed quarterly along with all other members’ bills.  This fee includes full dues (including Rotarian magazine) and lunches for each member.  This is subject to change if dues and/or lunch costs rise.Corporate membership for two members is the same but will cost $500 per quarter.Extra fees (such as demotion party) will be paid by each member.

More details about our Corporate Membership Programs:

  • “Once an entity becomes an eligible corporate member through the established approval process, it may appoint up to four persons to be its designees, one of whom must be a member of that entity’s senior executive group; the others can be managerial individuals employed full time by the eligible corporation.”
  • “Each designee will be listed as an official member of the Rotary club and will be noted in the roster that they are designees of the named eligible corporation.”
  • “Each designee, as an individual, can hold any office in the Rotary club to which the designee is elected in the normal way. The number of designees to hold an office at any one time will be established by the club.”  The Board decided no more than two from a 4-person and one from a 2-person Corporation.
If a corporate member wishes to convert to an individual membership there will be no extra charge but the member will then be responsible for all costs as is any individual member.

Evening memberships are available for those who are unable to make daytime meetings, the investment is approximately $125 every three months.  Of course, evening members are welcome to attend any Rotary meeting by paying the luncheon fee.

Extra fees (such as demotion party) will be paid by each member.
