The Andover Rotary's Andover Cares movement introduced the potential of Rotary to new people who want to make a difference in their community. However, for many, the traditional service club model of required weekly meetings and just doesn't fit into the busy lives we all live today. So Andover Rotary created two new membership levels.
A Service Membership has fewer meeting requirements, lower membership fees, and evening meeting options.
An Corporate Membership is very similar to our traditional membership option. The principal corporate member gets all of the benefits that are included with a traditional membership, along with the flexibility to send a designee/associate to meetings that he/she is unable to attend each month. Corporate members may also bring associates to help at Rotary service projects. We encourage all of our principal corporate members to attend at least 1 meeting per month.
Want to learn more about joining the Rotary Club of Andover? Please feel free to contact Membership Chair Al Ruthazer with any questions about these great options for busy local business leaders ready to join a great service club helping to improve our community.

The Andover Cares Fund, part of the Rotary Club of Andover Charitable Foundation, is seeking grant applications. Andover Cares and the Andover Cares Fund were established in fall 2015, inspired by several members of the Rotary Club of Andover who lives have been touched by the heroin epidemic plaguing our community, our state, and our nation.
