Note to Sponsors/Mentors:

Please review the Guidelines for Membership in the Rotary Club of Ann Arbor before proposing a candidate for membership. Once you are satisfied that a candidate meets the requirements, complete this form and submit it. If you would like to meet with a member of the Membership Development Committee regarding this proposal, we will be happy to do so. Dan Romanchik (dan@danromanchik.com) is the Chair of the Membership Committee. Documents to assist your recruiting can be found in the lower left corner of the badge board.

Useful items of information in your recruiting are financial obligations. Currently, annual dues for members in the 40-69 age range are $380. Under 40s pay $230 while 70 and over owe $350.  Meals are $12 each week on a “pay-as-you-come basis.” The initiation fee is $150 although this payment is waived for current or former Rotarians. The final requirement is a Community Service Assessment (CSA) of $200 per year. It is a donation to the Ann Arbor Rotary Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity. New members pay the initiation fee (if applicable) plus prorated amounts of the dues and CSA upon induction.

Also note that members are urged to refrain from referring to guests or candidates as “future members” until the Board of Directors has acted on and approved a nomination, since the candidate is subject to review until that time.

Please have all information at hand when you input data on this form as you are not able to edit a nomination once you have pressed the submit button.

Note that any nominees proposed by the September 12 deadline and approved at the meeting of the Board on September 19 will be expected to attend the orientation and induction on Wednesday, October 10. The orientation starts at 10:30am. The induction ceremony will be conducted during the luncheon that day. Any exceptions to these dates will result in the new member becoming part of the next class of new members which is scheduled to join on Wednesday, March 13, 2019.
