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.
"Having only lived in Springfield as a university student, joining Rotaract helped me bridge the gap between ‘college-town’ and ‘life-long home.’ This fantastic group of young professionals has helped me connect to the greater Springfield community and has been a tremendous support to me both professionally and personally. It has also been a great opportunity to give back and help shape the community I plan to call home."
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.
