Annapolis Rotary thrives because of the active participation of its membership, which often goes far beyond the required.
A Rotarian's primary responsibility is attendance at regularly scheduled meetings. All active ordinary members are expected to attend, or submit a make-up, for 60% of the club’s regularly scheduled weekly meetings. Opportunities to make up attendance include attending the regular meeting of another Rotary club, attending various other Rotary meetings, or participating in a club service project.
Members are also required to pay annual dues, which are distributed between Annapolis Rotary, District 7620 and Rotary International. In addition, members are encouraged to financially support various club projects.
Participation is what makes Annapolis Rotary so effective. All members are expected to participate in the annual Crab Feast and other club service projects, and to serve on assigned committees. They are highly encouraged to participate in local or international Rotary activities, too.
Finally, leadership is a responsibility members are encouraged to embrace and that many find most rewarding.
