Rotary is an organization of business, professional and community leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
On June 2, 1913, club number 63, the Rotary Club of Austin was formed. The Rotary Club of Austin is made up of business, professional and social leaders in Austin. We are the largest of 13 clubs in the area with around 300 members. All members are respected in their field and adhere to the Four Way Test in business and personal life. If you meet a Rotarian you will often find that he or she belongs to many organizations in town. The membership is composed of people who care about Austin and the world.
You're invited to visit the Rotary Club of Austin (RCA) to learn more about Rotary and experience first hand the "goodwill and better friendship" that our members share. RCA meets every Tuesday from 11:30 - 1:00 at the St. David's Episcopal Church on 8th Street (See below for Driving Directions and Map). This year marks a special year for Rotary International and there are a lot of special things happening at RCA!
The Mission of the Rotary Club of Austin is to ethically serve our local and global communities while providing challenges and opportunities for service and self-improvement for our members. In doing this we further the objectives of Rotary as set forth in our Constitution -- "to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise" -- and provide foundational and aspirational pillars for each Rotarian's life. Those pillars of excellence upon which our Club builds are:
