Overview of the program

Global Networking Groups allow individual Rotarians from several countries to join together to focus on common interests. Through these groups, you can
  • Share fellowship and friendship with thousands of Rotarians
  • Meet other Rotarians with a similar hobby or vocational background
  • Collaborate with Rotarians from around the world who are dedicated to a particular area of service

There are two types of Global Networking Groups: Rotary Fellowships and Rotarian Action Groups.

Rotary Fellowships

Rotary Fellowships offer Rotarians the opportunity to make friends with others in Rotary who share a common vocation, hobby, or recreational interest. Read more about Rotary Fellowships in the Rotary Fellowships Handbook (PDF).

Rotarian Action Groups

Rotarian Action Groups conduct international service projects that further the Object of Rotary. If you're interested in supporting a particular type of service activity, there may be a Rotarian Action Group for you. Learn more about Rotary's service opportunities.

How to join

How to organize a new Global Networking Group

Forming a new Global Networking Group requires time-intensive, long-range planning and deliberate outreach to Rotarian colleagues. But as Rotarians who've established a group will attest, the effort is worthwhile.

Before preparing a proposal, you'll need to determine whether your proposed group would be a Rotary Fellowship or a Rotarian Action Group. Consult the Rotary Fellowships Handbook for guidance. 

To receive official recognition for a group, you must submit a formal request (PDF) to RI
