Probus

What are Probus Clubs?

Probus clubs are organisations for men and women who have retired from their profession or business and want to maintain a social network with others who have similar interests. Each Probus club is sponsored by a Rotary club, although the latter's involvement varies from country to country and the Probus clubs enjoy autonomy once formed.

Probus clubs were first formed, as an acronym of Pro(fessional) and Bus(iness), in the early 1920s in Canada and USA. However, the name was fused into a different type of club in England, and the first non-sectarian Probus club was formed there in 1966.

Today, Probus claims to have more than 300,000 members in thousands of clubs worldwide, the largest concentration being in Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand.

Probus Club Activities?

Probus club members are largely active volunteers in many community organisations and many have formed smaller interest groups under the Probus umbrella. This include groups for hobbies such as fishing, sports, entertainment, bridge playing, travel, etc.

Probus clubs typically meet once a month for fellowship and to hear guest speakers. There are no attendance or service requirements.
