the Rotarian Advisor responsibilities and to ensure Rotarian involvement at all Rotaract events.
To encourage Faculty Advisors to partner with one or more colleagues to share the Faculty
Advisor responsibilities and to ensure Faculty Advisor participation at all Rotaract events.
To establish a District Rotaract Facebook page to provide a platform for Rotaractors to communicate with

the District Committee, RI, etc. and will serve as a depository for governance documents.
To develop a District newsletter, as per RI mandate produced and edited by the Rotaract Representatives.
To develop a survey for Rotaractors, Rotarian Advisors and Faculty Advisors to taken before and after the
Rotary year to:
 determine pre and post knowledge of Rotaract
 assess the needs Rotaract Clubs and then to assess if those needs were met
 determine how the District Committee can improve services to the Rotaract Clubs and sponsoring
Rotary Clubs
To create awareness in all Rotary Clubs throughout the District about the importance of Rotaract. The
message will be:
 Rotaract is the lifeline of Rotary
 Rotaract Clubs need the support of Rotarians, i.e., mentors
 Rotary Clubs, whether sponsoring or non-sponsoring clubs should want to invest in future
Rotary leadership (through financial support) i.e., Rotaract at the District/State level. This
allows for the incoming Rotaract leadership to attend PETS and other District events, and so
that current leadership will have funding to attend District events and activities.
