THE FIRST PASSPORT CLUB IN THE WORLD

Passport Clubs are designed to be flexible, affordable and accessible to people who want to be Rotarian's but find that traditional Rotary clubs don't fit their lifestyle. The unique element of a Passport club is that we have fewer in-person meetings. Our club meets four times a year. Instead of weekly meetings, our members have a "passport" to visit other Rotary clubs and take part in activities and projects that interest them.

The structure of Passport clubs may be different, but the underlying reason people become Rotarians is the same. Rotarians are dedicated people who want to make a difference in their communities and in the world.

We invite you to join us and become trailblazers in this exciting and evolving Rotary organization.

[2017-2018 Board of Directors]

Membership in this unique Rotary club was conceived for (1) Recent graduates (21 or older), (2) Former Rotaract and Interact members who wish to continue their Rotary journey, (3) Former Rotarians who left the organization due to financial reasons, job relocation or other life events, but want to come back to Rotary, (4) Current Rotarians who are considering terminating their membership due to life events, (5) Current Rotarians looking for a new Rotary club within the District to transfer to, and (6) People who are new to Rotary and want to get to know the clubs in the District before choosing one to transfer to.  The affordable dues structure and flexible nature of the Rotary Passport Club could be the right fit for anyone looking to make a difference.   

The leadership of the Rotary Passport Club has three functions: (1) Communicate with the membership the opportunities for impactful volunteerism, (2) Educate the membership on all things Rotary, including its programs, global humanitarian efforts, and leadership opportunities, and (3) Perform activities and fulfill reporting requirements of Rotary International to maintain the Club's good standing,
