Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who come together to make positive, lasting change in communities at home and abroad. 

Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary members have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.

Our motto: Service Above Self

For more than 110 years, our guiding principles have been the foundation of our values: service, fellowship, diversity, integrity, and leadership.

Rotary members believe that we have a shared responsibility to take action on our world’s most persistent issues. Our 35,000+ clubs work together to:

  • Promote peace
  • Fight disease
  • Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
  • Save mothers and children
  • Support education
  • Grow local economies

Rotary Fellowships are independent, social groups that share a common passion. Being part of a fellowship is a fun way to make friends around the world.

History of the ROAR Fellowship

Rotarians of Amateur Radio is one of the oldest fellowships of Rotary International. It was organized in 1966 by the late Byron C. Sharpe, W9BE, whose Rotary club in Glencoe, Illinois, USA, sponsored the new fellowship. Also, instrumental in the beginnings of ROAR was George Chatfield, K1UIL. He started a transatlantic net on15 meters with Harold Chadwick, G8ON, in 1969. For many years Chatfield was net control on Sunday and Thursday mornings, assisted by his friend Dr. Mark Elliot, W1YY1. ROAR members participated in their first Rotary International Convention as a fellowship in Denver, Colorado, USA, in 1966. They operated a special event station with the call sign W0RI. The first published record of ROAR membership came out in December 1970. The roster contained calls of 764 members from 40 countries. Today, we have more than 350 members representing 25 countries. Our ROAR fellowship is directed by a central body consisting of the president, immediate past president, secretary, treasurer, webmaster and newsletter editor. We have eight vice presidents representing areas of the world with a large member population or the potential to grow. There are also two sub-assemblies, in Japan and Great Britain, with their own associations and officers. Over the years the ROAR fellowship has had twelve presidents. One of them, the late Hugh Archer, W8JA, went on to become president of Rotary International in 1989.
