Surveys We are constantly trying to improve our organization so that we can provide the best for our members! In order for us to improve our events and meetings for the future we need your feedback on our past events. Surveys for each event are posted on the event Facebook page during the event so that members can fill out the surveys immediately after an event ends. Each survey you fill out is worth 30 membership points, and this semester we are enacting a new system in which the first 10 members to fill out our 10 surveys will receive a $10 Amazon gift card! The link to all our surveys can be found here

A huge congratulations to the 4 members who have already filled out 10 surveys: Jenny Garza, Justin Lee, Kylee Mebust, and Taylor Lee!

11/14: Interact Committee Meeting #10

Interact Committee’s main goal is to bridge the gap between the collegiate version of Rotary, Rotaract, with its high school branch, Interact.

This will be our final committee meeting to celebrate all of our committee members’ and volunteers’ hard work.

Get excited and pumped because Local Committee and International Committee are hosting a joint event this coming Friday to package gifts into shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child.

Join our gift packaging party where we’ll be making personalized cards while bonding with other Rotaractors!
