Rotary International's stated purpose is to "bring together business and professional leaders to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world." The first Rotary Club was formed in 1905 by attorney Paul P. Harris. The first meeting was held with three of his friends. They chose the name Rotary because they rotated club meetings to each member's office each week. Today the club consists of 1.2 million businesses, professionals, and community leaders.

The Manteo Rotary Club was chartered in 1936. As of 2018, the club still operates at 108 Budleigh St., Manteo, N.C., and is currently in District 7720. In 1998, the club began hosting an annual fishing tournament, the Rockfish Rodeo, as a fundraiser for its scholarship program. The tournament has been held annually since, but in 2014, its name changed to the Inshore Slam and its focus broadened in order to guard against over-depletion of the local rockfish population.
