One of our first sessions of the Summit will give each club 5 minutes to introduce themselves. Prepare speaking notes, a powerpoint, just improvise, or whatever you desire, it’s up to you how your club will be introduced.
Celebrate Successes and Looking Ahead In another session, each club will have the opportunity to share the events of the past year: what did you get up to? Have any successes to brag about? We want to celebrate with you. Did you learn anything new you would like to share? Then, they can speak on what they have planned for next year. Fundraisers? Service projects? Trips? We want to know. Group Rotaract Project (Dragon’s Den Style. ) Have you ever wanted to do a multi-club Rotaract project? Now is your chance. Prepare a short, 5 min or less presentation on the project you’re proposing, and we’ll vote as a group which we’ll take on together. Don’t forget to include an approximate timeline (6 months? 2 years?) and what specific actions you expect would be required (eg.
knit 100 blankets, persuade local teachers to work with us, find a place to store items, get sponsorship for building supplies, etc.). Before the Summit, send your ideas to Rain Bossert, [email protected] , with a one or two sentence summary of your idea.   Rotary Panel Each Rotaract Club is welcome to invite one (singular. ) Rotarian from their sponsor club(s) to sit on our Rotary Panel. The session will be facilitated, and conducted in a “question and answer” format, with Rotaractors asking questions of the Rotarians. The goal is to facilitate better understanding and connection and open communication within our Rotary family. Rotarians are invited to stay with us for lunch afterwards. Please ask your Rotary guest to arrive a few minutes before noon, as the session will run from 12:00pm to 1:00pm and lunch will be from 1:00pm to 2:00pm.
The Good, The Bad and the Ugly This was a previous crowd favourite: a facilitated group discussion on what challenges your club has faced, with the opportunity to come up with solutions and strategies together. Membership successes and challenges will be given special attention. Accommodations The most affordable paid accommodations we found were with HI Edmonton: Rotaractors must register for their own accomodations. Alternatively, some Rotaractors living in the Edmonton area would be happy to host those coming from out of town. Contact Kathe Debenham [email protected] if you would like to stay with a local Rotaractor, or if you would be interested in hosting a Rotaractor from out of town. Hopefully we’ve covered it all. Don’t hesitate to reply with any questions or comments you have, and don’t forget to reply with any dietary restrictions. Cheers. The Rotaract Summit Planning Committee
