How to Apply

Rotary is a volunteer organization and it is organized by the local club, and above that, the district. To apply, you need to get in touch with your local Rotary Club. They generally begin the application process in September. If you pass the interview process at the club level then you will be recommended to the district. District interviews are held in November, with notification of acceptance occurring in December.

This website is organized at the district level, and specifically, for district 7170, which is central New York State, roughly, Oneonta to Binghamton to Ithaca. If you live in these areas, contact us, and we can put you in touch with your local club. If you are not from this area, visit the Rotary International website, where you can lookup your local club.
