Why Join Rotary?
Rotarians are business and professional leaders who take an active role in their communities while greatly enriching their personal and professional lives. A Rotary Club contains a diverse group of professionals and business leaders from the community that the club serves.
Today, the Rotary Club of Windsor Roseland boasts nearly 50 members who continue to meet on a weekly basis, a vibrant calendar of guest speakers, and strong participation in service projects both in Windsor and across the world, the Rotary Club of Windsor Roseland is carrying forward the traditions and values that were first founded here over 40 years ago.
Membership in Rotary offers a number of benefits, including:
Service above Self
Through service projects and club events, members connect with one another to make bold, sustainable improvements in the lives of others locally and internationally
Rotary provides a friendly atmosphere and outstanding programs that inform about current and critical issues for our city, region, state, and global communities.
Rotarians enjoy occasional diversions from demanding professional and personal schedules to sample international cuisine, hike in the mountains, host golf tournaments, and tour local wineries.
From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians were concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their professional lives. One of the world's most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The Four-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor (who later served as RI president) when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy.
This 24-word test for employees to follow in their business and professional lives became the guide for sales, production, advertising, and all relations with dealers and customers, and the survival of the company is credited to this simple philosophy. Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The Four-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways. It asks the following four questions:
"Of the things we think, say or do":
- Is it the TRUTH?
- Is it FAIR to all concerned?
- Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
- Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
