During the Rotaract District Conference 2008 of the district 4070 (Ontario, Quebec, and NY), a team of Rotaractors from across the district got together to discuss the opportunities Rotaractors had at every level of the organization to get involved in the community and the world, and gain friendships and new skills.  The results of their discussion were sumed up under the form of a table.

Making every Rotaractor aware of the possibilities open to him is a great way to encourage your Rotaractors to pursue their involvement with the club and to get better trained, more motivated members.  And after all -- if we can help our members, by sharing all this great information with them -  why not do it?
