A Probus club is a local association of retired and semi-retired professional and business people, and others who have had some measure of responsibility in any field of worthy endeavour, who are of character and respected in their communities. Clubs meet regularly for fellowship and an extension of their interests.
Probus is not a “senior citizens” or “lonely hearts” club.
The name is an amalgam of the abbreviation of the words professional and business. Probus is also a Latin word meaning honest or virtuous, from which the English word “probity” is derived.
Each Probus club is autonomous. There is no central organisation and each club sets its own rules. Probus magazine, published quarterly, is the only national publication enabling clubs to communicate, share experiences and ask for or impart advice.
