For Prospective Members:
Rotary brings together people like you who want to make a difference. The Rotary Club of Hammond is here to provide you with the resources and opportunities to improve our community and create change in the world.
Rotary connects leaders from all cultures and occupations who want to use their distinct expertise for good. People whose sense of responsibility inspires them to give back to their communities. Who step forward to tackle the toughest challenges – and persevere to create lasting change in communities – in our region and around the world.
As a Rotarian, you have an opportunity to impact a cause that you’re passionate about. Ideas for new projects are always welcome.
Get involved! We want to grow our club with people like you – people committed to integrity and making change happen. Be our guest and join us for lunch at an upcoming meeting. For more information, contact Kathleen Abels.
For Members Who Would Like to Nominate a New Member:
Our club wants to grow! We are always seeking new members who share our value of service.
How can you help? Invite a non-Rotarian to volunteer at a club service project or join us for lunch so they can see Rotary in action! Please provide the Sergeant-At-Arms with the name, phone number and email address of your guest so that we can thank them for their participation.
If your guest expresses an interest in joining Rotary, complete a nomination form. You can also download the nomination form HERE, fill it out, and give it to the club secretary or membership chair.
If the board approved the nomination, the club will hold the prospective member’s name in nomination for two weeks. The prospective member will be asked to refrain from attending meetings during this comment period. Members are encouraged to review the prospective member’s information and talk to the nominating Rotarian about the candidate. If a member doesn’t believe the nominee will make a good member, he/she must make his/her feelings known to a member of the board.
If no adverse comments are given on an individual within the two-week comment period, the nominating Rotarian is notified that his/her candidate has been accepted and installation of the new member is scheduled.
If adverse comments are given the candidate’s nomination goes back to the board for further discussion. The board’s decision is final.
For more information about nominating a prospective member, please contact the membership chair or a board member.
