Did you know that Rotaract is celebrating 50 years this year? Better yet, did you know that D6290 has a new Rotaract Club at Hope College?
Most D6290 Rotaract Clubs are based at a college campus. The Great Lakes Rotaract Club, sponsored by Coopersville Rotary, is an exception as it is a 'virtual' club.
Rotaract Clubs can also be community based. We have none of these within our District. A community-based club offers an advantage in that the membership isn't as transitory as those on a college campus.
Get inspired to grow Rotaract. Watch Rotary's webinar, How to Start a Community-based Rotaract Club, for valuable tips on how easy it is to start a club, and why community-based clubs can be a great option. Rotary President-elect Barry Rassin has set a goal of doubling the number of Rotaract clubs in 2018-19. The webinar is available on demand.
