Rotarians come from all walks of life

Rotary uses a classification system to establish and maintain a vibrant cross-section or representation of the community’s business, vocational and professional interests among members and to develop a pool of resources and expertise to successfully implement service projects. This system is based on the founders’ paradigm of choosing cross-representation of each business, profession, and institution within a community. A classification describes either the principal business or the professional service of the organization that the Rotarian works for or the Rotarian’s own activity within the organization.

The Rotary Club of Haverhill does not maintain a general list of classifications. Due to the ever-changing landscape of professional work, there is no longer a standard list of classifications on file. Classifications aren’t rigid and may reflect the many different types of professions and positions that exist in industries.

The club generally will not elect a person to active membership from a classification if the club already has five or more members, or more than 10 percent of the club’s active membership, from that classification.

The classification of a transferring or former member of a club shall not preclude election to active membership even if the election results in club membership temporarily exceeding the classification limits.

Retired persons inducted into active membership use their former profession as their classification, but this is not be counted towards the club’s limit of members in a single classification.
