Client InformationThe world’s first service club, The Rotary Club of Chicago,Illinois, USA, was formed on February 23, 1905 by Paul P. Harris, an attorney who wished to recapture in a professional club the same friendly spirit he had felt in the small towns of his youth. The name “Rotary” came from the early practice of rotating meetings among members’ offices.
Rotary’s popularity spread throughout the United States in the decade that followed. Clubs were chartered from San Francisco to New York. By 1921, Rotary clubs had been formed on six continents, and the organization adopted the name Rotary International a year later. Today Rotary has 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide.
