PROBUS

Probus is an association of active retirees and semi-retirees who join together in clubs. The basic purposes are to provide regular opportunities to keep members minds active, expand interests and enjoy fellowship. The word Probus is an amalgam of the words Professional and Business.

The first Probus Club was formed by an English Rotary Club in 1965 to allow retired professionals and business people to meet together for fellowship.

The first Probus club in Australia was formed in 1976 by the Hunters Hill Probus Club NSW.

Probus Clubs comprise the fastest-growing Rotary -sponsored organization today, attracting a burgeoning population of retired and semi-retired business and professional people, and serve a growing population of retired leaders with no formal ties to Rotary International.

There are over 1800 Probus clubs in Australiawith a combined membership of 145,000. Most Probus clubs have between 50 and 100 members.

There are 78 Probus clubs in District 9600 with a combined membership of about 6000..

Rotary Clubs sponsor the formation of Probus Clubs and once established are accredited by Probus South Pacific Limited.

Such Probus clubs are self-governing within the requirements and limitations of the Club Constitution.

Rotary and Probus clubs are encouraged to maintain the connection and relationship by remaining in regular contact.

Clubs meet monthly, and some members belong to Rotary.

The Rotary International Board commends the formation of Probus Clubs as a service activity for Rotary Clubs. It urges Rotary sponsors to ensure that Probus Clubs constitutions follow Rotary's principles.
