The Rotary Club of Ipswich has launched a new membership scheme to enable business leaders and other organisations who are interested in joining Rotary to become corporate members.
Corporate membership costs £150 per annum and entitles a senior member of an organisation and up to three designees to become members. The senior member or any of the designees can then attend as many meetings as practicable, attend social functions and participate in community and fund raising activities.
Rotarian Roger Girling said: “There are a great number of business leaders and other organisations who we believe would be interested in joining Rotary, but through pressure of work cannot commit sufficient time for total involvement. As a club we have been contacted by many organisations who want to get involved, as it fits in with their ethos of commitment and responsibility within the local community. This is the fundamental reason for us launching our corporate membership scheme.”
Attendees at the launch event at the Holiday Inn, Ipswich were each given an information pack and a welcome letter from the club president.
It is so rewarding to be helping so many good causes and charities in our local community. Our club is always looking for new ways of helping others and no idea is too small or too large.”
