Riga International Rotary Club
Riga is the largest city in the Baltic region, a truly international city with a large community of foreigners from all over the world. Quite naturally there was a serious interest in this community to establish an International Rotary Club with English as Club language.

Membership in a Rotary club is by invitation only. Often a person considered for membership is invited by a club member to attend one or more club meetings to learn more about Rotary. If you and the club are a good fit, you may be invited to join.
Although our Club is informal and we have a lot of fun, there are some rules too! Rotary is, among other things, about companionship and commitment. The rules require each member to maintain a minimum attendance level of 50%. This is not always easy since most of us lead busy professional lives. But it is also a hallmark of a good Rotarian to make every reasonable effort to live up to this commitment and arrange his/her agenda accordingly.
Often it is simply a matter of re-scheduling a meeting and letting people know that on Friday lunch time you already have a meeting scheduled. Sometimes a good solution might be to bring a business partner as a guest and have your business meeting afterwards or beforehand.
