Frequently Asked Questions

Meetings

  • We meet between 12:00 noon and 1:30PM every Tuesday at Maggiano’s Little Italy, located in Lincoln Square, 10455 NE 8th St, in Downtown Bellevue (the corner of Bellevue Way and NE 8th Street).

  • Maggiano’s Little Italy will validate parking in the Lincoln Square parking garage (the north elevator is most convenient to the restaurant). See the BRC Calendar for maps and directions.

  • Thanks to all who bring guests to meetings. That benefits the club by spreading the word about Rotary in general, as well as the many avenues for service BRC provides.

    If you invite someone you think is a potential member, it is requested that you NOT mention that in your introduction. This has been a long-standing protocol that has both Rotary’s and the guest’s best interests in mind. For example: it’s possible that a classification is already filled.

    It is proper to say something about your guests, how you know them, or what they do. If you wish to clearly signal that they are a potential member, at least on their second visit, it suffices to give their name, occupation, and a mention that this is their second visit.

    Again, thanks to all for spreading the good word about Rotary, and for your efforts to keep the experience positive for all. — From the BRC Membership Committee

Membership

  • An important distinction between Rotary and other organizations is that membership in Rotary is by invitation. Prospective members must:

    • hold — or be retired from — a professional, proprietary, executive, or managerial position.
    • have the capacity to meet the club’s weekly attendance or community project participation requirements.
    • live or work within the locality of the club or the surrounding area.

    Click here for more information about Rotary.

  • Generally, a person being considered for membership is invited by a member or sponsor to attend one or more club meetings to learn more about Rotary. The sponsor, together with two seconders, may then submit the name of the candidate to the club’s Membership Committee.

  • Rotary uses a classification system to establish and maintain a vibrant cross-section or representation of the community’s business, vocational, and professional interests among members and to develop a pool of resources and expertise to successfully implement service projects. This system is based on the founders’ paradigm of choosing cross-representation of each business, profession, and institution within a community. A classification describes either the principal business or the professional service of the organization that the Rotarian works for or the Rotarian’s own activity within the organization. Some examples of classifications include: health care management, financial services-banking, and architecture. There is a limit of 10% of total members for any one classification in the Club.

  • One of the reasons Rotary is successful around the World and in the United States is that it is specifically non‑sectarian, non‑denominational, and non‑religious. We are “inclusive” when it comes to religious, cultural, ethnic, and political (to state only some) differences. We do not allow any religious preaching, or proselytizing within our Rotary environment.
