About Rotary Club of Monash

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Monash

Rotary is a global community of 1.2million business and community leaders of varying cultures and occupations committed to improving communities at the local, national and international levels.

Bringing together our passion and diverse experiences and perspectives, we exchange ideas and take action to empower, educate and develop youth, build goodwill and understanding between cultures, communities and countries, promote peace and resolve conflicts, prevent and treat disease, improve sanitation, maternal and child health, and develop economies and communities.

The Rotary Club of Monash is part of Rotary International District 9810 and meets on Wednesday mornings for breakfast and meeting at PARKROYAL Monash Melbourne (872 Blackburn Rd, Clayton VIC 3168). Meeting time is 7:00am for 7:15am, finishing at 8:15am.

Our membership encompasses a diverse range of professions, experiences, networks and Rotary engagement. In an enriching and fun environment our members undertake projects at Club, District and Global levels to assist our local, national and international communities; undertake personal and professional development opportunities; and participate in networking and social activities. Most of us live or work in the City of Monash.
