Are you an established professional wanting to connect with other professionals and make positive changes in your community and around the world?

As the oldest service club in the world, Rotary club members represent a cross-section of our community’s executives and professionals as well as political and philanthropic leaders – people who make decisions and influence policy.  The Rotary Club of Seattle is a non-political and non-religious organization that values diversity and is open to all cultures, races, and creeds.  We invite you to join us and check out the benefits of membership. 

Members of the Rotary Club of Seattle also become members of the Seattle Rotary Service Foundation, which supports projects locally, nationally, and internationally. You can learn more about the great work of SRSF on the Service Foundation page.
