Rotarian Action Groups provide assistance and support to Rotary clubs and districts in planning and implementing community development and humanitarian service projects. They are organized by committed Rotarians, Rotarians’ family members, and Rotaractors who have expertise and a passion for a particular type of service.  

HOW ROTARY ACTION GROUPS OPERATE:


  • Membership is open to Rotarians, spouses of Rotarians, and Rotaractors.
  • Rotarian Action Groups regularly collaborate with clubs and districts on service projects in their area of specialty.
  • Rotarian Action Groups must adopt RI’s standard bylaws for Rotarian Action Groups and operate in accordance with Rotary policy.
  • Rotarian Action Groups can assist clubs and districts in obtaining funding or other assistance for their service projects.

WHY WORK WITH ROTARY ACTION GROUPS?
  • Rotarian Action Groups provide opportunities for Rotarians to engage in meaningful service in partnership with like-minded Rotarians outside of their own club, district, or country.
  • Partnering clubs and districts can benefit from the expertise and collaboration of Rotarians from all over the world who share their commitment to a particular area of service.
  • Rotarian Action Groups help attract and retain members who are motivated by involvement in service.
