At their January 2011 meeting, the RI Board of Directors took two decisions that affect Rotaract in our district:
1) Rotaract clubs should appoint Rotarian mentors to the Rotaractors in the Rotaract clubs they sponsor. This will help Rotaractors increase their professional and leadership skills and improve the connection between the Rotaractors and Rotarians from the sponsor Rotary club.
2) Beginning in 2011-12, Rotaract club presidents must submit updated Rotaract club membership lists electronically to RI twice a year. The lists must include the names, e-mail addresses, and gender of each club member. Rotaract clubs that do not submit this information to RI in a two-year period will be terminated. Specific information about the new system for updating RI with Rotaract club and membership data will be sent in a future communication.
Our new District Rotaract Officer is Jesse Lambe (Rotary Club of Putney). Sarah Ball is taking leave of absence from 1 February and so queries about Rotaract should now go to Jesse. Rotaract questions can also be directed to Lydia Johnson, the Rotaract District Chair.
