This July, Rotaractors Alexis Houser and Molly Hanrahan attended the Big West Rotaract Institute in Santa Clara, CA, receiving great support from both Utah District 5420 and their sponsoring club, Salt Lake Rotary. Big West Institute is an opportunity for Rotaract Club officers to learn how to better develop and improve their clubs, and to create connections and partnerships with other Rotaractors from all across the West Coast of North America. Informative and engaging seminars cover a variety of topics, from membership and retention to budgeting to passing the torch on to new leaders. "I'm so thankful to have had the opportunity to expand our Rotaract family and can't wait to implement new ideas into our club!" -Alexis Houser. Big West Rotaract Conference is October 25-27, 2019 in Vancouver, B.C. Canada. Rotaractors and their Advisers have another opportunity for more leadership training, education, networking and building lifelong friendships. Go to www.bigwestrotaract.org.
