Vallejo Rotary Club's protocol for nominating a prospective new member:
a) If a member in good standing thinks someone
would make a good Rotarian, before they say anything to the prospective
Rotarian, they are to request a
New Member Proposal form from the
b) They fill out the form to the best of their
ability without speaking to the person proposed. The
proposed member is submitted to the Board of Directors at their next available
meeting for consideration.
If the proposed member is approved at this level, their name will be published
in the club bulletin (the Propeller) for 3 consecutive issues.
c) If, during the time the name is published,
no current Rotarian objects to the prospective member, the proposer will be
notified and should at this time invite the prospective member to a meeting.
This is when the prospective member should be told about Rotary ... who we
are ... what we do ... etc.
d) After they have attended a meeting they
can and should be asked if they are interested in becoming a Rotarian. They
must then attend 2 more meetings (3 total ... this is where people get
confused about the 3 meeting thing) ... again, if no objections are raised by
a Rotarian or the prospective member then they would be inducted at the 4th
