Oakland, CA 94612

After you apply, our membership process is very simple: a meeting with an officer, notice in our weekly e-newsletter and scheduling of your induction. Upon induction, you become a member. At that time, your dues obligation begins. Dues of $390  are invoiced semi-annually and may be paid in a lump sum or monthly through automatic credit card payments. Discounts for members who are under 40 years and 65+ years are available. We also have a couples discount.


We also offer corporate memberships. The organization designates two or three persons to be Rotary members and has the right to change the designations when needed.  Dues of  $ 1,500  are invoiced annually, rather than semi-annually.
