Annual Dues
The membership cost is $240 per year (subject to change), payable no later than February 1st (upon application, annual dues may be split into two equal payments if necessary). Fees are prorated on a monthly basis for members joining part-way thru the year. 
Annual dues are broken up and applied towards:
  • subscription to "The Rotarian" magazine,
  • Clubrunner fees (this website and services),
  • the cost of meals for speakers and guests, 
  • liability insurance, and
  • Rotary International dues
Attendance, Participation & Legal
Part of being a Rotarian is having the option to join various meetings, events and outings. Weekly meetings form the core of the Club's activities and are generally held every Tuesday from 12-1pm at Canad Inns in Portage la Prairie. These meetings may be subject to change, including venue location and time (occasional supper meeting). Attendance is not mandatory but strongly recommended. 
Members are encouraged to be active in the Club by participating in club activities, events and meetings. Once you see how Portage Rotary Club is involved in the community, you will WANT to be involved!
As required by Rotary International, all members are subject to a Criminal Record Check and Child Abuse Registry Check.
