Rotary information and administration
District 7730 website
Rotary District 7730 comprises 49 clubs in southeastern North Carolina, most of which are direct descendants of the Wilmington club. The district website has useful information about district officers and committees, officers of other clubs, and a calendar of other events.
District and club database
This password-protected site offers information for club members' use. Usernames are typically email addresses, and passwords are derived from Rotarians' member numbers, found on the mailing label for the monthly Rotarian magazine.
Herman Blizzard Archives
A former president of this club and a former district governor, the late Herman Blizzard accumulated a large archive of documents, photographs and artifacts concerning the club's history. It is now housed in the Special Collections Library at UNC Wilmington's Randall Library. A portion of the archives are now available online.
Rotary online meeting makeup
One way to earn makeup credit for missed club meetings is to sign in to this "e-club" and spend half an hour, and a few dollars, watching videos about Rotary. Makeup credit will be assigned automatically upon completion of the session.
The Rotary Foundation
This non-profit provides the financial muscle for Rotary's projects world-wide. The Rotary Foundation has earned the highest marks from Charity Navigator for integrity and low administrative overhead.
Wilmington Rotary Club Constitution and By-laws
These are the essential documents that govern our club. They are derived from standards set by the world-wide Rotary movement that apply to all clubs.
Wilmington Rotary Club Strategic Plan 2021-24

Rotary legacy presentation
This slide show, produced as part of our 2015 centennial celebration, documents the many family connections between members of today's club and between current Rotarians and their ancestors. NOTE: Several of the members shown in the slide show have since died or left the club.
Achieving diversity: how Rotary welcomed women and people of color
For too long, Rotary had a reputation as a white men's club. As late as the 1980s, Rotary International refused to allow women to become members. This article, researched for the club's centennial, outlines how our club began the process of diversifying its membership. It was written in 2015 by Mimi Cunningham, who was the club's first woman president in 1994-95.
