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.
"Through Rotaract, I’ve had the opportunity to help raise more than $10,000 for Great Circle, build connections with young professionals in my industry and serve in a leadership role. I would tell any of my friends and colleagues to join Rotaract because our meetings are both social and educational, our community service events are heartwarming and meaningful and our socials are simply fun and carefree."Abby Glenn Habitat for Humanity of Springfield, Missouri
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.
