Information sheet for New and Prospective Members

(1) New Member Initiation Fee:  Initiation fee is $148.00. This fee covers the first six months of dues, club website roster, name badge, and $5.00 toward the Rotary International Foundation.

(2) Types of Memberships and Semi-Annual Invoices for Dues and Meals:
 
(A) Individual Membership: Semi-annual dues and meals are $253.00 every (6) months. Invoices are due December 1 and May 1 and are sent at least 30 days in advance. New members joining in the second half of an invoice period will pay for their meals at the door until the following invoice period.
 

(B) Corporate Membership: Semi-annual dues and meals are $352.00 every (6) months. This includes membership for three representatives and one pre-paid meal plan. Invoices are due December 1 and May 1 and are mailed at least 30 days in advance. New members joining in the second half of an invoice period will pay for their meals at the door until the following invoice period. Three employees from your Company will represent the Company in its membership. This will include 2 employees and the CEO, President, Owner of the Company, Managing Member, or Managing Partner (“the Head”). If a Head is already a Rotarian or if no Head works in the Charleston area, the third employee does not have to be a CEO, President, Owner of the Company, Managing Member or Managing Partner. The Head will be invited (but not required) to speak to the club once within 24 months of activating the membership. If more than one of the three individuals would like to come to a meeting they will have to pay for any additional meals. The Company will collectively have the same attendance requirements as an individual member, which can be met by any one of the three individuals attending.

New members joining in the second half of an invoice period will pay for their meals at the door until the following invoice period. This classification applies to individuals 39 and under at the time dues and meals are billed. Young Professionals are required to only meet half of the attendance requirements (must attend 25% of the meetings a year) but can attend as many as they like if they want to attend more.
 
(3) Transfer Member or Former Member:
The transfer fee is $60.00 to cover the cost as listed above under #1.
 
(4) Community Investment Committee
Members are strongly encouraged to participate in our community service activities with both their time and their treasure. Members are also strongly encouraged, but not required to, become Paul Harris fellows by contributing $100 to the Rotary Foundation each year.
