ITHF exists to promote and facilitate regional, national and international "connections" between its members. ITHF members travel to all different parts of the world and host members from all other parts. Members' lives are enriched by these connections and cross cultural exchanges.

But don't take our word for it, listen to our members ...

Since 1986, we've been aware Rotarians throughout the world are hungry for opportunities to visit and host fellow Rotarians as they travel. From dozens of "connections" our lives have been enriched in ways others can only dream of.

We are blessed to be among the founding members of ITHF as result of visits made to our home. We have encouraged others since that time to join and participate freely. We have hosted a number of ITHF visitors and always enjoy the riches of ITHF fellowship at convention.

As first president and newsletter editor, Wanda and I learned early of the benefits of ITHF. Since then we've organized and led multiple ITHF tours for the happiest, friendliest, most curious and thoughtful people in the world. ITHF still provides us with an array of surprise and discovery.

ITHF in Perspective:

Rotary Fellowships offer Rotarians and partners the opportunity to make friends with others in Rotary who share common interests. The ITHF is one of more than 60 officially sanctioned and recognized recreational fellowships. They range in interests from golf to wine to fishing to travel and hosting, and more. For a complete list, see

ITHF was officially recognized by Rotary in 1989. ITHF is incorporated and is governed by a group of 20+ vice presidents from all regions of the world and a president and senior vice president, all of whom are elected by the membership every two years. A volunteer staff of secretary, treasurer, membership director, communications director and promotional direcctor supplement the work and support provided by our full time administrator.

Members planning travel refer to the Members Only database on the ITHF website to identify other ITHF members living in the area. Prospective hosts are contacted 30+ days in advance. They consent to a "connection" subject to their own convenience. "Connection" details are worked out between the members.

ConnectionsITHF "connections" are self-paced, subject to individual preferences and can coincide with business or pleasure travel. Membership in the ITHF implies a desire and intent to accommodate other ITHF visitors; however, such "connections" are always subject to the convenience of the hosts.

ToursAs an enrichment, the ITHF frequently offers "tours" led by dedicated and experienced Rotarians, and packaged at the lowest cost possible. These tours most often coincide with Rotary International Conventions and are limited to ITHF members and partners only.

The ITHF is NOT a bed and breakfast organization. It is not a home hotel association. There is no obligation to accommodate visitors in the home - the "connection" will be richer for it, but some members do not have space for visitors.

This fellowship is not an agency of, or controlled by, Rotary International
