Member Resources

Club Membership

Rotarians are upstanding citizens of good character who abide by the principles of the organization. Members of our club are generally professionals, executives, and community leaders who work or reside in the Shippensburg area. To become a member, you must be sponsored by a current member and approved by the Board of Directors and general membership.

Membership Requirements

Active members are required to pay dues and to participate in club activities. Here is a breakdown of what is required of individuals to maintain good membership standing in our club.

Individuals who fail to meet membership requirements during any full calendar quarter (our reporting period) will enter probationary status. Those who who fail to meet requirements during two consecutive quarters will have their membership terminated.

Those who are no longer able to maintain their membership for any reason are required to promptly submit their written resignation to the board so that club administrators can resolve accounts and other issues properly. Individuals who leave in good standing can rejoin any of Rotary's 33,000 clubs around the world.

Note: under special circumstances the board may grant an attendance waiver for up to one year when requested in writing.

For more information on membership, consult our constitution and bylaws.

Attendance Credits

Attendance of weekly meetings, especially club assemblies, is important for all members to contribute to the diversity of experience and breadth of knowledge that fosters robust discussion, and ensures healthy operation of our club. For this reason, our members are expected to attend 100% of our weekly meetings. Achieving that goal is of course not always possible, but there are a number of ways that attendance credits can be earned, which makes it achievable even if schedules do not allow for weekly attendance.

Ways to Earn Attendance Credits:

Most approved club and district events will be listed on our club calendar. Proof of participation should be given to the President, Vice President or Secretary to ensure proper credit.

Service Credits

There are a number of opportunities for club and community service throughout the year, and credits are earned both through administrative (club) service and volunteer (in-the-field) service. Members are encouraged to find a service project that relates to their areas of interest or broadens their experience. Our members can also suggest new service projects based on needs in our community or beyond.

If you are looking for new service opportunities, talk to a Lane Chair, our service Committee Chairperson, or the chair or coordinator of a specific project. Club leaders are listed on our Contact page.
