What is Rotary?

The first Rotary Club was established in Chicago in 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships.

In 2019, Rotary is an international network of over 1.2 million people across more than 35,000 clubs in 200 countries who work together to bring positive change to local and international communities.
