We are excited to announce that Rotaract District 7040 has joined the recently formed Rotaract Canada! This is a great opportunity for Rotaractors in our district to get involved with Rotary at a new level. By joining Rotaract Canada, Rotaractors in our district will have access to new opportunities to serve, learn, and connect. As stated on their website, Rotaract Canada is a MDIO, meaning they “spread information about service projects and events and foster communication between districts”. Through joining Rotaract Canada, members in our district will have even more opportunities for personal and professional development and leadership training.
Rotaract Canada was chartered with Rotary International Districts 5050, 5360, 5370, 7010, 7070 and 7810. Since then we, District 7040, along with District 7090 have joined and we look forward to seeing more districts joining in the near future. Through joining the MDIO, all Rotaractors in our district have an amazing new opportunity: to grow their leadership skills through joining a Rotaract Canada cabinet. Excitingly, we already have a few Rotaractors in our district stepping into positions with Rotaract Canada, including: John Le, Hannah Glover, and Riley Weymann. There are a multitude of other opportunities to help serve and support clubs across the country with positions available to match any skill set, from graphic designer to copywriter to analyst. There are as many as 20 positions available for Rotaractors to apply for, see their website for more details.
There are many more upcoming exciting resources that will be available soon to clubs and Rotaractors of our district. From leadership development to a skills exchange there will be many resources for Rotaractors to participate in and take advantage of. We look forward to an exciting Rotary year with many new ways to serve, learn, and connect!
