Probus Tomorrow’s Vision for Active Retirees

PROBUS is an association for active retirees who join together in clubs, the basic purpose of which is to provide regular opportunities for them to keep their minds active, expand their interests and to enjoy the fellowship of new friends.
If you are an active retiree or no longer working full time you may like to join a social club to enjoy friendship, fellowship and fun. PROBUS can offer a great avenue of interests and new horizons.
Probus meets the needs of retirees by providing opportunities to keep their minds active, expand their interests, stay healthy through activities, benefit from training programs, network between like minded people and enjoy the fellowship of new friends.
Probus can provide members of the community with fresh ideas to enrich and fulfil their lives in retirement.

Probus is a community service activity of Rotary Clubs

Probus first started in Hunters Hill NSW in February 1976.
Probus Clubs provide the opportunity for retired people to meet regularly, without demands or obligations, and at a minimum cost, in circumstances that provide for members new interests and new friends.
Probus Clubs are autonomous and have a simple organization and it is emphasized that they are non-political, non-sectarian and non fund raising.
Probus Clubs are Clubs for those with professional business and executive backgrounds and others who have had a measure of responsibility in their occupation during their working life.
There are no attendance rules, but members are encouraged to attend at least 5 meetings per annum to gain the greatest benefit from the fellowship offered,
Probus Clubs are sponsored and formed only by Rotary Clubs; and they are accredited by the Probus Centre – South Pacific on the application of the sponsoring Rotary Club.
