Rotary Club of Portland: Service Above Self

Become A Member

Thank you for considering membership in the Rotary Club of Portland

The Rotary Club of Portland offers individual and corporate memberships to fit your personal or professional needs. We also have a special membership category for young professionals under the age of 35.

What does membership provide you? Opportunities for our members include building relationships, connecting with community, and serving internationally. The Rotary Club of Portland’s mission is “to be the preeminent service club in Portland by being the vehicle for fostering fellowship, leadership and service that benefit our members, our community and our international collaborators.”

1. Are you intrigued by an organization with international clout whose motto is: Service above Self?
Through service projects and club events, members connect with each other to make bold, sustainable improvements in the lives of others locally and internationally.

2. Are you looking for a standing lunch date each week with the most interesting and diverse group of people in Portland?
Rotary provides a friendly atmosphere and outstanding programs that inform about current, critical issues for our city, region, state, and global communities.

3. Are you looking for opportunities for fellowship with like-minded members of the Portland professional community?
Rotarians enjoy occasional diversions from demanding professional and personal schedules to sample international cuisine, compete in the Hood to Coast run, host golf tournaments, and tour local wineries.

Join us for lunch as a guest to see Rotary in action. Contact the Rotary Office at 503-228-1542 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
