What is Rotary...

Rotary is an organisation of business and professional people who are united worldwide. They provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards, are in all vocations and they help build good will and peace.

The first Rotary Club was organised in 1905 in Chicago, USA. Rotary worldwide is organised into geographical areas known as Districts. The Rotary Club of Crookwell is in District 9710. Each District is presided over by a District Governor, who is elected for a 12 month term by a District Selection Committee.  The association of Rotary Clubs throughout the world is known as Rotary International.

Rotary International is governed by an International President and Board of Governors.
