New Member Orientation


2020 SCHEDULE (First 3 months) New Members Save the Dates...

I M Rotary is a 6-month orientation program to the Rotary Club of Traverse City, Michigan.  

We want your experience with our club to be fun and rewarding, so it is an expectation of all new members that you participate in this program.  New members should plan to attend all 6 sessions.  The program is ongoing, so you can start as soon as you join and if you miss a session you can make-up later in the year when that topic is presented again.

Members who attend all six meetings will be awarded 500 points (valued at $500.00) toward one of Rotary's highest honors: The Paul Harris Fellowship.  It will be up to you to match this award with your own funds to receive the Fellowship distinction.

We will typically meet on Tuesdays, starting at 11:45 am to 12:45 pm hour, at the Park Place Hotel in the small (B) conference room by the ramp before Rotary check-in. 

Please check in early with the Club Administrator Kathy Bussell and take your lunch with you to Conference Room B.

The following dates are currently set (but subject to change).  You will be notified of changes via email, and announcements at the general meetings and in the club e-bulletin.
