The Rotary Club of Minneapolis was established in 1910 with a state charter as a 501 c4 nonprofit. The club operates with a club constitution and club bylaws. Club 9 enjoys a reputation for leadership internationally and at the state level as the first Rotary Club in Minneapolis and the 9th established among over 33,000 clubs now operating around the world. Members come from the ranks of executive and professional roles representing all community sectors. Members develop their leadership skills by volunteering for club service involving executive management, strategic planning, fiscal oversight, and public speaking. Rotarians rotate for election to club leadership posts and leadership appointments. The club annually elects board members from among the membership. In addition, volunteer chairs lead the club’s standing committees, club teams, and ad hoc task forces.
