What are the Attendance Requirements?

Attendance is a very important part of a Rotarian’s membership.  If you are not consistently at the meetings, it is impossible to be an active member.  Rotary is built upon fellowship and friendships which develop from attendance at meetings.  However, it is understood that among busy persons, a problem of attendance may arise.  An attendance record of 50% is required to remain an active Rotarian.  Any missed meeting must be “made up” within 14 days before or after the regular meeting.

One of the many benefits of Rotary club membership is the luxury of being able to travel the world and never miss a weekly meeting.

Club members are welcome and encouraged to visit clubs while traveling to “make-up” the meeting missed back home.  There are also 18 other clubs that meet each week in the Las Vegas area and 65 clubs in our Rotary District.

Rotarians can also “make up” for a missed meeting by attending:

  • the meeting of a Rotaract or Interact Club
  • a convention of Rotary International, an international or district assembly or district conference, or any other meeting held by RI or the District Governor
  • by being present at the time and place of another Rotary club’s regular meeting for the purpose of attending — and that club is not meeting
  • by attending a meeting of the Rotary Club of Green Valley’s Board of Directors, or another event that has been designated by the club as acceptable as a make-up meeting.

Rotarians often ask what options exist if there is not a club in the area of travel, or if the member is home but an emergency causes him or her to miss a  meeting.  One option is to spend time participating in an interactive activity on a Rotary e-club website.  Rotary International has recently approved expanding the number of e-clubs that may form having virtual or electronic locations.  A visit to one of these e-clubs may satisfy a club member’s make-up requirement.

Two popular e-club meeting sites are Rotary eClub One and the Rotary eClub of the Southwest, USA.

When circumstances require, the Board of Directors may approve a Leave of Absence for a member.  A request for a Leave of Absence must be requested in writing.  The board may grant a Leave of Absence for a period of up to six months.
