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.
"As a young professional, I was looking for an organization I could join to help make a difference in our community. Rotaract is a service-first organization, and using a service- and community-first approach, Rotaract has helped me foster new relationships with future Southwest Missouri leaders. By being connected to Rotary, I’ve been introduced to numerous current community leaders. These relationships grow from a desire to give back, not from a 'what can I sell you' approach, and they’ll last throughout my career. Getting involved with Rotaract has been a monumental boost to my career and personal growth."
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.
