Financial Obligations and Attendance Requirements
 
Financial Obligations
  • The cost of dues (club, district, and Rotary International) is $200 per year. The cost of meals is $50 per month. For this $800 per year cost, you will be billed $200 each quarter.
  • Statements of dues are emailed to the address you have on file. Please submit your payment by check to the club secretary or treasurer.
Other Financial Considerations
  • In our annual fundraiser, we have historically raised $45,000-$50,000. We ask that you fundraise at least $600 (sell 30 tickets).
  • We hold an auction every year to raise money for Armful of Love to provide families with Christmas presents. We hope that you will participate by either donating (or finding a donor) for the auction, or bidding in the auction. What you spend is your choice.
  • We ask our members to give annually to The Rotary Foundation. The extent of this gift is your choice.
  • We occasionally have social events, and sometimes these events have a cost. This cost is typically not covered by the club. Your attendance is optional.
  • Our meetings include a variety of fines, and a raffle. You can be fined for showing up late, skipping a meeting and not documenting your make-up, getting trivia questions wrong, or paying a “happy fine” to share news you’re excited about. Members are typically fined $1-$3 per week.
  • We also hold a weekly raffle, which is entirely voluntary.
Attendance Requirements
As a member of our club you are responsible for attending at least 50 percent of weekly club meetings in a six-month period.
 
Attendance Options
If you’re unable to attend a meeting, you can make-up that meeting by attending a meeting of another Rotary club (local, online, or elsewhere). Use the club finder at https://www.rotary.org/en/search/club-finder to find meeting locations and times. Club activities such as board meetings and service projects are also allowable make-ups, as are district wide events.
If you’d like to make-up a meeting at another Rotary club in this area:
  • The Rosemount Rotary meets at noon on Fridays at Fireside Restaurant in Rosemount.
  • The Rotary Club of Eagan meets at noon on Wednesdays at the Eagan Community Center.
  • Eagan Kick-Start Rotary meets at 7am on Thursdays at Granite City in Eagan. 
Please verify times and locations have not changed before attending another club’s meeting.
