  • 07/08/13 Of course, there are policies that ask Rotaract clubs to update twice each year. But I want to talk about something more important than policies--the power of the Rotaract movement. When we have strong, active clubs that are connected to Rotary, we show that Rotaract is a global force for good. We demonstrate that Rotaract is truly a partner in service with Rotary and that the world’s Rotaractors are essential to the global community of Rotary. You make it easier for the Rotaract and Interact Committee—and for RI staff—to advocate for innovative changes that benefit Rotaractors. You make it easier for RI to make changes that welcome Rotaractors into Rotary communities on the new website, to register for the Convention online, to access resources that were once for Rotarians only.

  • Because we do not have data for individual Rotaractors, we estimate the number of Rotaractors based on 23 Rotaractors per club. How many people in the audience have exactly 23 members in their clubs? How many have more? 07/08/13
