Visit Our Club
The Rotary Club of Westchester contains a diverse group of professional leaders from the community, and these leaders take an active role in the community while greatly enriching their personal lives. Membership in the Rotary Club of Westchester offers a number of benefits:
 
  • Effecting change within the community
  • Gaining an understanding of, and having an impact on, international humanitarian issues
  • Developing leadership skills
  • Advancing business and professional networking
Our club and members are part of the 1.2 Rotarians in more than 32,000 Rotary clubs, in 168 countries. Together, we make substantial contributions through Rotary's service programs, to the quality of life at home and around the globe. 
 
Types of Membership:
 
  • Active: When a candidate accepts membership, he or she becomes an Active Member, filling a classification that is loaned to that individual by the club.
 
  • Honorary: Honorary membership is a high mark of distinction granted to an individual by the Board of Directors. An honorary member is distinguished by meritorious service in furtherance of Rotary ideals. The honorary member must reside, or be definitely associated with the territorial limits of the club, cannot hold office in the club, and is not required to pay dues. 
 
  • Young Professional: When a candidate, usually between the ages of 21-45 years old, would like to be an active member in the Westchester Rotary Club, but is unable to attend the lunch meetings on a weekly basis and/or is unable to meet the financial responsibilities of a lunchtime member.
