Becoming A Member of the NORTH Austin Rotary! 

Membership is by invitation and subject to the approval of the club as a whole. Club dues are $200 and are due in June. This does not include the cost of breakfast, which is $15. Additionally, we strongly encourage each member to contribute $100 annually to the Rotary Foundation, with a goal of 100% participation. Our meetings are lively and fun with informative and interesting outside speakers each week.

If you would like to join our club, we encourage you to attend three meetings before you apply for membership. If a Rotary member invited you to our club, that person can give you an application and will be your sponsor and mentor. We would love to have you as a member!


Step One - Apply

To Apply for Membership:
  • Complete this application for membership
  • Submit the complete application to either your Sponsor or to Joe Ramirez (our club membership chair) 
  • Pay your $50 application fee to the Club Treasurer Amity Mercado
    • *note - This $50 is applied to your first installment of Club dues. 

Step Two - New Member Orientation - Red Badge Program

This program is designed for you to learn more about Rotary and for us, as a club, to learn more about you! We believe this helps you become more involved in the club and get the most out of your membership. Keep your Sponsor and Membership Chair involved in the status of your progress as you work through this program. 
In order to move through the Red Badge Program, you will need to choose any 3 of the action items listed below to complete. 
  • Give a classification talk to the club
  • Join a committee within the club Attend another club's meeting
  • Participate in a Service Project
  • Be a Greeter for 4 weeks
  • Attend a Board of Directors Meeting
In addition to working through the 3 items of your choice, you will also work with your Membership Sponsor and Our Club Membership Chair to set up a few orientation meetings where you will have the opportunity to learn more about the Club's rich history.

Step 3 - Installation

Report your completion of the Red Badge Program to your Membership Sponsor and submit your first installment of dues to the Treasurer, ($125 -$50 application fee) = $75.00! 
This will be applied to the following January or July payment closest to your completion date. The Membership Director will then work with you and your Club President to schedule your installation as an OFFICIAL Member of The North Austin Rotary Club and Rotary International!

Obligations of Membership

The Rotary year is from July-June
Annual Dues $200
Dues may be paid in full by June 1st each year or can be broken down into two semi-annual payments paid by June 1st and January 1st. In addition, our retired Rotarians do qualify for a reduced dues rate of $160/year or two $80 semi-annual payments.
Rotary International Foundation: $100/year Voluntary Donation
We encourage all members to support The Rotary Foundation each year with a $100/year gift. Many of our members set up a $10/month automatic giving schedule by clicking this link and selecting the DONATE NOW button.
Weekly Meetings $15 for lunch
One Time - $50 Application Fee


Rotary International encourages but no longer requires 50% attendance at club meetings. Participation in committee meetings, service projects, and makeup meetings without clubs are all credited towards your attendance, so you will have ample opportunity to meet that goal. Many Rotarians strive for 100% attendance and with the ability to earn makeup meetings, this is also an attainable goal.  

Rotarian Transfer - 

Rotarians move, change jobs, and occasionally just need to find a new Club to call home! Our Club has several members that started their Rotary membership in a different club and for a variety of reasons have transferred their membership into The North Austin Rotary Club. For our Transfer Members, our process requires you to fill out the Membership Application and then work with our Membership Chair and Executive Secretary Gregory Rabaey to make sure that we facilitate that transfer and give you the opportunity to retain your history and data with MyRotary! We also encourage our Transfer Members to complete 3 of the Red Badge Action Items and also coordinate with the Membership Chair an opportunity to attend an orientation meeting so that they can also learn about the rich history of The North Austin Rotary Club.
