Becoming a Rotarian


If you believe that community involvement is an essential element in the life of a well-rounded Leader, you may be a candidate for membership in the Rotary Club of Escondido.

Rotary International includes over 1.3M business and professional leaders in nearly 33,000 local clubs worldwide who adhere to high ethical standards and the ideal of service to community. Rotary's motto is “Service Above Self.”

Our members will tell you that the primary reasons for joining Rotary are:

  • Participation in significant community and international projects
  • Fun, informative, and educational meetings
