CLUB STRUCTURE

Rotary is a worldwide organization of approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belonging to more than 35,000 clubs internationally.

The Rotary Club of Waikiki was chartered on June 20, 1939 and is part of the Rotary District 5000 which is part of Zone 26 in Rotary International. Waikiki Rotary is the sixth oldest Rotary Club of 52 clubs in District 5000. Visit our club history page for more information.

Rotary Club of Waikiki structure

On May 2, 2007 the membership of the Rotary Club of Waikiki unanimously agreed during their weekly meeting to revise the current by-laws to adopt the recommended organizational structure suggested by the “Rotary International Club Leadership Plan”. Traditionally all committees were organized under four committees (Community Service, Vocational Service, Club Service, and International Service) based on the Four Avenues of Services derived from the 4 Objects of Rotary.

The new by-law change provides clarity and realignment of previous subcommittee tasks into Five New Standing Committees. The realignment was designed to focus the efforts of volunteer Rotarians on the four critical areas that make an effective Rotary Club.

Definition of an effective Rotary Club

Rotary Club of Waikiki Leadership Plan

The Standing Committee Chairs advise what areas our club can achieve on the Presidential citation and the District Governor's citation.

Each year, the President of Rotary International and the Governor of District 5000 develop a citation document. The Standing Committee Chairs advise what areas our club can achieve on the Presidential citation and the Governors citation.

The Club President holds the primary responsibility for the direction of the club in his or her year (July 1 to June 31). The club President surveys the club membership & Board of Directors before their tenure starts and develops general strategic guidelines for the standing committee chairs to use in develop perform the their leadership role and insure the effective operation of the club. To learn more about the general guidelines, visit This Year’s Presidential Vision.

The Rotary Club of Waikiki adopted the Five New Standing Committees and is in the process of defining the appropriate standing committees to insure the four critical areas are achieved. The purpose of each standing committee is as follows:
