Formal definition of Rotary

Rotary is open to everyone aged 18 or over.
There are 1.2 million Rotarians worldwide, in 250+ counties, via 35000+ clubs.

Rotarians are expected to attend at least 50% of the official meetings (usually but not always weekly) and one designated committee meeting per month, and be involved in some of the clubs projects. There is so much going on that it is impossible to be involved in everything the club does.

The Rotary Moto is Service before Self.

Rotary has four evaluation criteria for what Rotarians say and do;
Is it the truth?
Is It fair?
Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
