Members congratulate one another—and are there to support each other—on anniversaries at work, job promotions, marriages, new babies or first homes. Rotaract stands out because the Club partners with Springfield’s five Rotary Clubs; by working together on service projects and professional development, meeting together for socials and coming together for an annual city-wide meeting, Rotaract members are exposed to the various clubs to determine which one is the best fit for them after their time in Rotaract.
"I've made life-long friendships with countless young leaders in our city, thanks to Rotaract, and I'll forever be grateful for the leadership experience I've gained in our club. Serving as community service chair, to secretary on the board, to president-elect and president, Rotaract has been a big part of my life as a young professional and I'll be sad when it's time to go. But most of all, I'm humbled to be part of something so much bigger than that. We've made thousands of children's lives better - something I could never achieve all on my own. Together, we make a HUGE impact on our community."
Potential new members, your first lunch is on us!
Currently, the Rotaract Club of Springfield meets from noon to 1 p.m. every second and fourth Wednesday at 425 Downtown at 425 W. Walnut in Springfield. Each luncheon features a program to expand members’ understanding of the work environment and business opportunities within the community. Speakers from various facets of the area bring the knowledge of their industry or organization to members each meeting. Visiting Rotarians often join Rotaracters for lunch as well.
