The Rotary Club of Brighton meets weekly at the Royal Albion Hotel by Brighton Pier, for a 3-course lunch at 12:30 for 1:00 p.m. on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Wednesdays of each month and for an informal networking buffet at 6 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays. See the Where and When We Meet page for details of dates, times and speakers.
Guests, visiting Rotarians from around the world, or prospective members are always assured of a warm welcome at this gathering of professional businessmen and women from the city who meet for networking and local development of the world-wide Rotary ideals of “service above self”, that is doing what we can by fund-raising and other endeavours to support both local community projects and major international campaigns, for example: the worldwide eradication of polio, malaria and water-borne diseases and providing relief to areas affected by earthquakes and tsunamis.
At a local level, clubs such as The Rotary Club of Brighton, provide invaluable opportunities for business and professional leaders to bring their business acumen and skills to bear on the numerous community and youth projects which depend on programmes of voluntary support. The wide range of professions and business skill found among the members of every club, also mean that clubs are by their nature, both great fun and wonderful networking forums in themselves.
Rotary networking offers the additional dimension that it operates within the framework of an organisation whose fundraising in the city has probably been worth over £1 million in today’s values, of which about 60% has been returned to local causes, very largely youth-related, and 40% has been donated to international causes.
So Rotary networking provides the usual business opportunities, with the added value of letting you contribute actively to the life and welfare of your community.
Interest in full membership of the Rotary Club of Brighton is encouraged in those attending the Club’s networking events. Membership would enhance your city profile through your active involvement in the club’s community programmes.
