Members make their time available to Rotary according to their lifestyle and the changing demands of family and work commitments. Rotary as an organisation recognises the need for members to place family and employment ahead of volunteer activities and expects that each Rotarian will prioritise their time appropriately.

Teamwork is essential to achieve the club's goals and therefore members need to spend time together regularly to get to know each other well. To that end, the club meets weekly throughout the year to provide a forum for team-building and information exchange. Guest speakers are a feature of Rotary meetings as they provide members with access to a wide variety of people addressing interesting and relevant topics.

Members are encouraged to attend meetings as often as possible and may be actively engaged in a variety of ways such as working on one of the club's project committees or taking a Board position, which usually involves directing a project and attending and Board meetings once a month.

Sometimes a Rotarian is caught in a business problem or has a family crisis and can't attend meetings. This is not a problem. The Board is concerned to know of this type of issue in order to understand the situation and consider whether any support could be offered. For those who can't make the time of our own club meeting, may take the opportunity to visit another club and enjoy the company of other Rotarians.

We all get too busy at times but when the demands on our time diminish, then we can enjoy club meetings again and make our time available for teamwork.
