  1. Qualifications. Any adult who brings expertise and a desire to serve and otherwise meets the requirements described in the RI Constitution Article 5 is eligible to be a member of the Rotary Club of District 6400 Passport.
  2. Method of electing members. Prospective members are first approved by the board, and then their names are broadcast to current, active members. If no member objects within 10 days, the prospective member is invited to join. Rotarians who are relocating are automatically invited to join unless they were terminated from their previous clubs for a negative reason. In addition to regular, active members, members of the club can propose individuals who have established a connection with the club as Honorary Members. Honorary membership is used to recognize people who have distinguished themselves by meritorious service and embody Rotary ideals, or those considered friends of Rotary for their support of Rotary’s causes. Honorary Members must be elected by a majority vote of active members.
