Rotary Board and Committee Roster

The Hillsboro Rotary Club Committee Roster 2024-2025


The majority of the work done in our club is through a variety of committees. The committees are based on the five avenues of service in Rotary. The club expects all members to participate in one or more of these committees. We invite new members, join the Membership Committee for at least one year and choose one of the committees below. All committees are listed on the website along with the Chair, his/her contact information, and current committee members.

The Foundation of the Rotary Club of Hillsboro is separate and distinct from The Rotary Foundation (TRF). It is also a separate corporate entity from the Club, although the Foundation is integral to the activities of the Club. Members of the Club are automatically members of the Foundation.

The Foundation is a 501c(3) non-profit organization that raises and distributes funds to local & international worthy causes that are consistent with the mission of Rotary. Many of the fundraising activities of the Club members are on behalf of the Foundation. Functions of the Club and the Foundation go hand in hand.
