Interested in joining?

If you’ve taken a look through our site and like what you see, perhaps joining South Kaipara Rotary might be for you.

You will probably have a lot of questions and would like to find out more about what being a member involves as well as what the costs and commitments are.

We’d love to invite you to join us at any of our community events and projects, or simply come and join us at a casual and relaxed meeting on the first or third Wednesday of every month from 7pm-8pm at Parakai School. Or email

As you may have gathered, South Kaipara Rotary is different from a lot of other Rotary Clubs. We keep it casual and encourage children and adults to help make a positive impact in their community. We are a family service club; we help serve our community!

We are a satellite club, which means we are still small and are supported by Henderson Rotary.


How much of a commitment does being a rotarian involve?

These days the requirements for meeting attendance have been significantly loosened. We understand that people lead busy lives. The kind of people who become involved in Rotary are often busy people too. For that reason we don’t focus on attending every single meeting, rather the engagement and contribution you make to the club as a whole.

However the more you do attend, the more you’ll learn about the club, what’s going on and how you can contribute.

Henderson Rotary is also prepared to invest time and money into getting you educated about Rotary. We strongly encourage and will pay the cost for new members to attend our Rotary District’s training programme called ‘Rotary Learning and Information’. This is held 2 or 3 times per year and is a day long session where you’ll meet Rotarians from other clubs all over our District and learn about how Rotary clubs work with relation to the District and internationally, plus the important role the Rotary Foundation plays as our charity of choice.

We also would love your input into areas you’re passionate about. If there is anything you’re interested in doing, please let us know. Talk to any of us or email

The best way to contribute to Rotary and learn about our Club is to say ‘Yes’ to opportunities which arise.
