About Rotary Club of Portland

The Rotary Club of Portland is one of the largest Rotary Clubs in the world; and the 15th chartered club out of 33,000+ chapters around the globe. You will find a diverse membership dedicated to Service Above Self, a core principle of Rotary that every member supports across our city, around our state and throughout the world.

You may think, "oh, i don't have time for that, I can't go to another lunch meeting." Honestly, Rotary Club of Portland is far more than you can imagine. Our members actively use their influence, professional skills, time and resources to make meaningful change in Portland and throughout the globe. In the process, members develop life-long relationships with each other while serving in our community or overseas.

In fact, the weekly meetings are a time to challenge your thinking and get exposure and learn perspectives from international, national and regional experts on business, economics, politics,environment, healthcare, education, engineering, culture, design, people and more. The real work of the club is done by volunteering with others with a shared passion to improve lives here and abroad. If you're looking to be part of group that has the resources to make the world and our city a better place and has fun doing it, then come visit us. We're interested in new members who believe in Service Above Self. Come join us!
