Meal Policy Of The Exchange Club Of Rome

Members are encouraged to bring prospective member guests to all regular meetings. The club is most happy to pay for the meals of prospects the first three times they visit, more then that you are required to pay for your guest’s meal unless they have submitted an application for membership, in which case the meals will remain at no charge. If you bring a non-prospect guest, someone to just join you for lunch, or if you take out a lunch for anyone that is not a member, you are required to pay for your guest’s or takeout meal. The cost of the meal is $10 per meal and must be paid to the Treasurer or other officer at the time of the meeting. Money can also be placed in the Dues Box in the lobby.
