Club Administration


Club Administration

Effective Rotary club administration involves organizing people and resources to achieve common goals. Clubs must operate efficiently to provide service to the community, attract and retain members, and develop leaders for the club, district, and Rotary International.

In most Rotary clubs, administrative responsibilities include:

  • Planning and organizing weekly meetings and programs
  • Promoting fellowship among club members
  • Keeping members informed through a club newsletter or Web site
  • Collecting dues
  • Maintaining club membership lists and reporting to Rotary International
  • Tracking club attendance

The Standard Rotary Club Constitution (PDF) outlines administrative requirements that every club must satisfy. The Recommended Rotary Club Bylaws (PDF), which can be tailored to suit each club’s needs, also includes administrative procedures. Learn more about RI policies.

The Club Leadership Plan is the recommended administrative structure for Rotary clubs.
