There are many reasons to start a new Rotary club. Potential qualified members in a community may not be able to attend an existing Rotary club meeting because the meeting time does not fit their schedules. Alternatively, an existing Rotary club may not be able to accommodate growth due to limitations in meeting facility space. There could also be circumstances calling for a club that conducts its meetings in a different language. All of these scenarios and many more, may suggest there is a need for a new club.
