Why Join the Rotary Club of Belize | Sunrise
New members interested in fellowship and service are always under consideration at the Rotary Club Of Belize Sunrise. Membership consideration is made easy and simple by the process we have put into place. Shown below, are just some of the important reasons members find club membership to be so beneficial.
* Professional Networking
Meeting periodically to enjoy camaraderie, enlarging one’s professional acquaintances, and extending one’s business circle are all among the founding Rotary principles. A cross-section of our Club members will include political leaders, managers, executives, community leaders, business owners, and so many others that influence policy and make vital decisions.
* Opportunities For Service
Both internationally and locally, there are many opportunities for humanitarian services available to Club members. Such concerns as water projects, illiteracy, poverty, hunger, and health care are addressed by our service programs. We experience, as Rotarians, the fulfillment which comes from giving to the community.
* International Awareness
Being in over 200 countries, and numbering more than 33,000 Rotary clubs, through exchange programs and international service projects, Rotarians gain a good understanding of humanitarian issues. Building peace and goodwill throughout the world is one of Rotary’s highest objectives.
Fellowship is what Rotary was founded on, and today this remains a primary attraction of membership. Club projects offer many opportunities to develop friendships which are enduring, and members of the club enjoy friendship with other like-minded professional individuals. In virtually every city across the world, traveling Rotary club members have friendly contacts.
* Good Citizenship
Programs at the weekly Rotary club meetings help to keep members informed what is taking place around the world, the nation, and the individual communities, and also motivated to make a difference in all these sections.
* Family Foundations
Some of the world’s largest scholarships, educational exchange, and youth exchange programs are sponsored by the Rotary. Innovative training opportunities are provided by Rotary International, as well as mentoring for young leaders and their families in a wide range of service and social activities.
A chance to have fun at different social activities. Our club is happy to host parties and other activities offering pleasant diversions from the demanding personal and professional schedules we all have these days. The social events, assemblies, conventions, and conferences provide entertainment as well as Rotary service, education, and information.
* Ethical Environment
From the earliest days of the Rotary, encouraging respect for all worthy vocations, and high ethical standards in one’s profession, has been a hallmark. Our members, in their professional and business lives, strive to live by the Four-Way Test:
Of the things we think, say or do:
- Is it the TRUTH?
- Is it FAIR to all concerned?
- Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
- Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
* Leadership Development
It is an organization of successful professionals. Just a sampling of the leadership skills club members can enhance and exercise are communication, organization, planning, public speaking, fundraising and team building.
* Membership Diversity
The vocational classification system of the Rotary makes certain that the membership of the Rotary Club of Belize Sunrise represents a variety of the professional women and men in the community, including leaders in industry, business, government, the arts, the military, sports, and religion. Like all Rotary clubs, our club is nonreligious, nonpolitical, and open to all creeds, races, and cultures.
