Become a Rotarian

Become a Rotarian

Membership is vital to a Rotary club’s fellowship and community service activities. A primary goal of the club is to continually expand the club with committed members who have the interest and ability to get involved in service and humanitarian projects, and who like to have fun at the same time.

Rotary clubs invite individuals to join and become members (but don’t worry if you don’t know a Rotarian). We encourage people to attend several meetings before joining. This allows you to get to know us and the club before considering any commitment.

Benefits of becoming a Rotarian

Apart from involvement in one of the world’s largest service organisations, established more than 100 years ago, the benefits of membership of the Rotary Club of City Central Hobart include:

  • An instant network of like-minded people in Tasmania, Australia and across the world.

  • The opportunity to interact with business people from across a wide range of industries.
  • Variety of diverse and entertaining Guest Speakers.

If you know one of our members (see the Members page) have a chat to her/him and come along to a meeting.

The Four Way Test
Of things we think say or do:

  1. Is it the truth?
  2. Is it fair to all concerned?
  3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

From the earliest days of the organisation, Rotarians were concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their professional lives. One of the world’s most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The Four-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor (who later served as RI president) when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy.

This 24-word test for employees to follow in their business and professional lives became the guide for sales, production, advertising, and all relations with dealers and customers, and the survival of the company is credited to this simple philosophy. Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The Four-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways.
