"Probus clubs serve a growing population of retired leaders. They have no formal ties to Rotary International and little name recognition in big swaths of the Rotary world. But Probus clubs comprise the fastest-growing Rotary club-sponsored organization today, attracting a burgeoning population of retired and semi-retired business and professional people." The first Probus (professional and business) club was formed by an English Rotary Club in the mid-1960's to allow retired professionals to meet together for fellowship. (A sectarian Probus Service Club was formed in 1921 in Connecticut, USA, but is not related to the mainstream of Probus Clubs, see Origins .. Editor) The idea spread to other countries. Today, Probus clubs claim more than 300,000 members in thousands of clubs worldwide, the largest concentrations being in Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand. Although sponsored by Rotary clubs, Probus clubs enjoy autonomy once they have been established. Clubs meet monthly but have no attendance or service requirements, and membership fees are nominal. Members may and do belong to other organizations, including Rotary. Some Rotary clubs retain ties with the Probus clubs they have sponsored, but the ties are informal. "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 club constitutions follow Rotary's principles." "While Probus has minimal organization, centres in at least half a dozen countries staffed by volunteers provide advice on getting started and issue newsletters or directories to clubs. Rotary International commends the role of Probus centres in administering Probus clubs in their areas and encourages those centres to register with Rotary International. The Canadian Probus Centre operates a World Wide Web site (http://www.probus.org) with general information on Probus."
