Welcome to the Pride of Rotary,                                    2011RIThemeLogo_Transp_150widthImage

Brief History of Rotary Club of Ikoyi Metropolitan   

The journey towards our becoming a Rotary Club started in 1998/1999 Rotary year when Rotary Club of Ikoyi established that there was a need for a new Rotary club in their territory. The Rotary President then, Rotarian Victor Oyolu started the process for establishing a new Club following Standard Rotary Constitution.

Rotarian Jerry Okwuonu, an indefatigable, versatile, knowledgeable Rotarian, and an in-coming President of Rotary Club of Ikoyi were appointed our DGSR. He called the first exploratory meeting in May 1999 and only 4 people responded. He was not discouraged and on the 28th of September 1999 a second meeting was called and this time 15 new prospective members responded. At this time 3 other great Rotarians from Rotary Club of Ikoyi – Rot Kola Ramos, Rot Faroun, Rot. Liasu – joined Rotarian Okwuonu in seeing to the success of our becoming a Club. They gave freely their Time, Talent, Treasury; they treated us to Rotary jokes and riddles; we had talks on Rotary, etc delivered by distinguished guest speakers and as time went on, we were encouraged to make impromptu speeches and talks. A new vista was opened to us and some of us who had some preconceived notions about Rotary soon began to appreciate what this great organization was really about.

By May 2000, our application for membership of Rotary International was formally submitted having met the minimum requirements of admission fee of $15 per member and 25 provisional members. Our hope then was that we were to be chartered before the end of June 2000 but this was not to be as we soon ran into several logistic problems the most serious being with our membership. We took up this challenge and with the support of another great Rotarian, Rot Gbenga Adekoya of RC of Ikoyi; and most importantly our District Governor Rot Charles Adebiyi, who on assumption of office on 1st July 2001 took us a priority and his efforts ensured we were Chartered on 11th December 2001 and formally admitted as a Club in Rotary International.

A formal celebration of our Charter took place on the 15th of June 2002 and for the past 9years, Rotary Club of Ikoyi metro has shown incredible resilience and has contributed immensely in advancing the essence and object of Rotary. It has produced 9 Rotary Presidents all with quintessential qualities of great leaders; it has impacted the Community it serves in all areas – Literacy, Health, Water, Vocations, Polio eradication etc all of which has earned the club the sobriquet ‘Pride of Rotary’.

Rotary International is the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.

We are all excited to see how ClubRunner will revolutionize the way we manage our day to day club activities, as well as communicate more effectively. ClubRunner is an all-in-one membership and communication software package designed for Rotary. More than just an easy-to-use website, it is a complete online package comprised of several modules, all designed to maintain your members' data, facilitate interactive communication, organize events and volunteers, distribute email newsletters and broadcast communications, improve public relations, and help run a club more efficiently.Accessible by all club members through a password protected member area, it allows every member to access key information to communicate much more effectively, as well as share information and collaborate better, as well as automate administrative functions such as attendance tracking and billing. Membership changes to the database are automatically communicated to Rotary International, therefore also saving the Club Secretary from performing double data entry.Online registrations for events and volunteer activities, automatic email services, and an integrated e-Bulletin, among other features, makes it easy to promote your club's activities.

The website features easy to use content management tools, where you don't need to have a technical background to maintain the site, and with the new Website Designer 2.0 interface, you can customize your site to reflect your club's identity and style.
